Queer Cinema in the World
Karl Schoonover & Rosalind Galt
   "In a self-admittedly 'risky venture' Karl Schoonover and Rosalind Galt bring together three deeply contested terms-'queer,' 'cinema,' and 'world' to reconfigure-successfully and elegantly-our imagination of queer cinema's ongoing project of conjuring different worlds. The book opens the door to a diversity of queer cinematic projects that while moving through the circuits of the global, carry with them their particular histories, cartographies, poetics, politics, aesthetics, spatio-temporalities, and erotics. A most intellectually audacious work."-Shohini Ghosh, Sajjad Zaheer Professor at the AJK Mass Communication Research Centre, Jamia Millia Islamia, New Delhi
"As the first substantive text on contemporary global queer cinema, Queer Cinema in the World transforms current debates in world cinema while bringing a welcome disciplinary specificity to queer theory's musings on cinema and transnational queer representability. Provocative, generative, and teachable, Queer Cinema in the World excites the reader with its scope and smartness."-Patricia White, author of Women's Cinema, World Cinema: Projecting Contemporary Feminisms
Proposing a radical vision of cinema's queer globalism, Karl Schoonover and Rosalind Galt explore how queer filmmaking intersects with international sexual cultures, geopolitics, and aesthetics to disrupt dominant modes of world making. Whether in its exploration of queer cinematic temporality, the paradox of the queer popular, or the deviant ecologies of the queer pastoral, Schoonover and Galt reimagine the scope of queer film studies. The authors move beyond the gay art cinema canon to consider a broad range of films from Chinese lesbian drama and Swedish genderqueer documentary to Bangladeshi melodrama and Bolivian activist video. Schoonover and Galt make a case for the centrality of queerness in cinema and trace how queer cinema circulates around the globe-institutionally via film festivals, online consumption, and human rights campaigns, but also affectively in the production of a queer sensorium. In this account, cinema creates a uniquely potent mode of queer worldliness, one that disrupts normative ways of being in the world and forges revised modes of belonging.
Karl Schoonover is Associate Professor and Reader in Film and Television Studies at the University of Warwick and the author of Brutal Vision: The Neorealist Body in Postwar Italian Cinema.
 Rosalind Galt is Professor of Film Studies at King's College London and the author of Pretty: Film and the Decorative Image.
