Hypervisibility: Homosexualities in Contemporary Film and Television Productions
(bilingual conference. June 8-9 2006 - Concordia University, Montréal)
(see French version below)
CALL FOR PAPERS
In her contribution to Richard Dyer's Now You See It (2nd edition, 2003), Julianne Pidduck remarks that 'contemporary queer works are increasingly entering into mainstream culture' and that 'we now find ourselves in a cultural moment of 'hypervisibility''. It is precisely such increased exposure in contemporary cinema that this bilingual, single-track conference aims to map, analyse, and discuss.
