CSC Playlist Initiative: Queer Feminist Citations

I am delighted to share with you ‘Queer Feminist Citations’ a playlist from  
 Clara Bradbury-Rance (KCL).  Arguing that ‘citing the past is a tactic for imagining a politicised future’, Bradbury-Rance assembles a list of queer/feminist films and programmes that exhibit with both humour and flourish their feminist/queer political media histories.

As always, you can peruse our larger collection of playlists here:
