Queer Screens

Series editor: David A. Gerstner, College of Staten Island, CUNY
Queer Screens is a new book series that will examine critical discourses of "queerness" by studying its various transformations through sound and the moving image, across a range of media platforms. By correlating the idea of "queer" with the notion of the "cinematic," these monographs will reimagine queerness as a visual and audible gesture, and as a mobile and malleable concept. Books in this series will emphasize close textual analyses of specific media texts in tandem with rigorous theory and research, and will be appropriate for graduate and advanced undergraduate classes in film authorship, for scholars of queer film and media studies, and for cinephiles.
