 Public talk by research associate Clara Bradbury-Rance

This presentation emerges out of Bradbury-Rance's doctoral research, which explores the contradiction surrounding the lesbian on the contemporary cinema screen who, at the threshold of the convergence of queer and feminist discourses, is marked by a paradoxical burden of visibility and invisibility.  

Through a series of readings of contemporary films that explore female homo-social and sexual desires, this presentation will seek to reconceptualize impressions of lesbianism that have concentrated on the lesbian "figure," a term which in itself is no longer capable of describing desires in a cinematic context in which a queer feeling crosses cultural, national, and theoretical borders.   

This event will also be live-streamed for online viewing at https://www.mtholyoke.edu/streaming/live
