Focusing primarily on film and televisual texts from the ten years before and after the millennium, the contributors ask how recent films and television programs play with, imitate, subvert, mock, critique, and queer the romantic narrative conventions so common in Western culture.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"The essays in this volume are compelling reading. Brief synopses of films and texts are worked, seamlessly, into the texts to familiarize readers with content that may be unfamiliar to them. In summary, the authors in this volume explore the varied ways in which contemporary film and television endeavor to incorporate nonheterogeneous normativities into their cultural productions, particularly as they relate to queer love. This is a smart read and a useful and accessible introduction to a rich and evolving field of study." - Journal of American Culture

"A varied and impressive collection of essays . . . This is a book for anyone interested in LGBTQ studies, queer theory, media criticism, or representations of non-heterosexual desires and relationships. Summing Up: Recommended." - CHOICE

"Influenced by the major queer theorists, the varied and provocative essays collected in Queer Love in Film and Television challenge our thinking about the ways in which gay and lesbian sex and love have been presented in film and on television over the past two decades, from Modern Family to The L Word, and from Brokeback Mountain to gay porn. Along the way, crucial questions are asked about the validity of conventional romantic narratives as vehicles for presenting queer relationships, and the possibility of queer love. " - John M. Clum, author of The Drama of Marriage: Gay Playwrights/Straight Unions from Oscar Wilde to the Present (2011), Something for the Boys: Musical Theater and Gay Culture (2001), and Still Acting Gay: Male Homosexuality in Modern Drama (2000)
