'A real failure does not need an excuse. It is an end in itself.' - Gertrude Stein, Four in America

'Under certain circumstances failing, losing, forgetting, unmaking, undoing, unbecoming, not knowing may in fact offer more creative, more cooperative, more surprising ways of being in the world.' - Jack Halberstam, The Queer Art of Failure

Gender Forum: An Internet Journal for Gender Studies

Ever since the momentous success of Ang Lee's western-drama Brokeback Mountain, queer film has increasingly reached the mainstream. Brokeback Mountain was followed by a considerable amount of Hollywood productions that focused on representations of queer issues and characters such as Milk, A Single Man, The Imitation Game and, as the youngest addition to the list, Stonewall. The latter is directed by Roland Emmerich, a filmmaker who is usually known for blockbusters like Independence Day. The fact that both star directors and casts have entered the production of critically and commercially successful queer film-making is indicative of its mainstream potential and a growing target audience.

Call for Publication: Essays in Virtual Dark Tourism

"Call it a pilgrimage, perhaps." --C.L. Moore, Vintage Season

Dark Tourism studies are expanding as scholars, largely from public history fields, have become interested in the phenomenon of thanatourism: people's fascination with traveling to places that have witnessed death or that recreate sites of calamity, war, and destruction. Ranging from the comical to the profoundly moving, these sites connect people to the past in tangible ways through objects, spaces, exhibits, and dramatic recreation.
