Queer Sex in Contemporary American and European Cinema

This thesis will examine the representation of queer sex in contemporary American and European Cinema. This will include a close analysis of films such as Blue is the Warmest Colour (2013), Stranger by the Lake (2014), Shortbus (2006), Keep the Lights On (2012) and Carol (2015). The PhD will define what queer sex is, how it is stylistically and narratively represented, as well how certain representations may or may not have changed in line with shifting socio-cultural and queer politics since the 1990s. The thesis is the first to tackle this area, and will analyse, critique but also celebrate the sexual images offered by contemporary American and European cinema.
