Queer Research Showcase: Queer Film Studies

Join the Edinburgh University Staff Pride Network for a lunch seminar showcasing queer film studies and languages research at the University of Edinburgh. 

John Lynskey 
John is a PhD researcher exploring cult cinema spectatorship, audience participation, queer audiences, gender identity. He will present work from his thesis on "Cult Cinema, Subcultures, and Queer Performativity". 

Eva Spišiaková 
Eva's research is mapping changes in the portrayal of the Fair Youth in Shakespeare's sonnets in Czech and Slovak translations in the communist and post-commuist eras. Through a theoretical framework from queer theory, Eva is uncovering patterns of translatorial changes and censorship of elements of same-sex desire and affection presented in the sonnets, and their possible correlation with the changing political landscape in former Czechoslovakia and current days Czech Republic and Slovakia. 

Presentations from current PhD students will be followed by questions and lively discussion.
