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.

Product Description: “I do not say you are it, but you look it, and you pose at it, which is just as bad,” Lord Queensbury challenged Oscar Wilde in the courtroom—which erupted in laughter—accusing Wilde of posing as a sodomite. What was so terrible about posing as a sodomite, and why was Queensbury’s horror greeted with such amusement? In Oscar Wilde Prefigured, Dominic Janes suggests that what divided the two sides in this case was not so much the question of whether Wilde was or was not a sodomite, but whether or not it mattered that people could appear to be sodomites...read more

SHE WAS EVERYTHING HE SCORNED…AND THE ONE THING HE COULDN’T RESIST. DANGER AND DESTINY IN A LAND OF SAVAGE ENCHANTMENT... She turned her back on the magnificent leopard and gazed, startled, into the green-gold eyes of the stranger who shot the beast that might have killed her. British-born Nicole Marshall was a brilliant markswoman and less-than-willing member of a hunting party in search of the legendary white tigress. In bold Holt Atley, the fiercely independent beauty had met her match. In the shadow of the Himalayas, she plummeted into jungle darkness seeking the secrets of her past...unaware of the treachery that pursued her...destined to find what she most sought in the arms of the man sworn to stop her—the one man who could penetrate her thorny defenses, brave the fires of her passion, and by teaching her to trust, tame her wild heart.
