QUEER EUROPEAN CINEMA: QUEERING CINEMATIC TIME AND SPACE (2016)
This open access introduction to a special issue of Studies in European Cinema provides a really comprehensive background on the word “queer” as a derogatory term-turned identifying label-turned media criticism framework.
The article also provides a great history of queer identity represented on film, from 1895 to now, in the process providing a handy viewing list for any scholar interested in delving into the history of queer cinema. It also provides an interesting look at how “queer cinema” is changing in modern times, in unique and unprecedented ways.
