A New Co-Editor!

Wednesday, November 2, 2022

We are so happy to announce that Cáel Keegan has joined David Gerstner as the new co-editor of our Queer Screens series! 

Queer Screens expands our senses by reimagining the relationship between queerness and the screen. In short, it engages in theoretical mayhem. Embracing mayhem’s destructive and reconstructive energies, each book in the series opens the “queer screen” to new questions about method, content, and form. Through rigorous textual analysis, Queer Screens refuses to let queerness rest or settle; it presses queer up against considerations of transness, race, and class analyses. Probing the edges of both queerness and the screen, the series provokes unexpected theorizations of visuality, aesthetics, mediation, canonicity, cinephilia, and auteurism.

Cáel M. Keegan is author of Lana and Lilly Wachowski: Sensing Transgender, and incoming Associate Professor of Critical Sexuality Studies and Film/Media at Concordia University in Montréal.

David A. Gerstner is professor of cinema studies at the City University of New York, College of Staten Island and Graduate Center. He has previously published over thirty articles in the subject of queer film studies and eight books including Christophe Honoré: A Critical Introduction (Wayne State University Press, 2015).
