Lesbian Cinema after Queer Theory

Clara Bradbury-Rance

Published by Edinburgh University Press

  • Explores lesbian cinema in the context of political, social and cultural transformations in LGBT civil rights while challenging the assumed relationship between visibility and progress
  • Explores the gendered invisibility instituted in critical discourses of sexuality by queer theory's departure from identity politics
  • Proposes the mutual, rather than synonymous or substitutive, use of "queer" and "lesbian" to describe sexuality on screen
  • Situates contemporary lesbian cinema in the history of the image of the woman as theorised by feminist film theory
