Serge Daney and Queer Cinephilia

This project looks at the French film and television critic Serge Daney (1944-92), and at his relationship with the twenty-first century’s new, queer and feminist modes of cinephilia. It will address these areas in three workshops to be held in Paris (organized by Pierre Eugène), Mainz and Birmingham in 2018 and 2019. It is funded through the AHRC’s Research Network scheme and runs from 1 July 2018 to 30 June 2021.

    "International Daney: Towards a Feminist and Queen Cinephilia" on January 25th 2019 in Mainz must have been one of the most memorable Workshops I've ever visited. Being a BA-student I didn't really know much about Daney beforehand and expected to feel excluded from the discussion. That obviously turned out to be wrong, due to the comfortable atmosphere of familarity and like-mindedness amongst the participants.

    The different lectures were chosen to cover a widespread range of topics and presented by individuals who were interesting themselves, beyond the subject they were talking about.

    It was a long day and language barriers made it harder to communicate, but the workshop definitely broadened my academic perspective and introduced me to eye-opening people, opinions and issues.
