October 9: "New Queer Cinema: New Politics?"

NYU invites you to the lecture "New Queer Cinema: New Politics?" featuring Ruby Rich, a professor at the University of California, Santa Cruz and author of New Queer Cinema: The Director's Cut and Chick Flicks: Theories and Memories of the Feminist Film Movement.

Wednesday, October 9, 5:30 pm
NYU Jurow Lecture Hall, Silver Center for Arts and Science
100 Washington Square East

In “New Queer Cinema: New Politics?” Ruby Rich revisits the terrain of the New Queer Cinema movement of the early 1990s in the context of our contemporary sociopolitical order, in which unprecedented legal rights are accompanied by a resurgence of lethal violence. This lecture with film clips investigates its legacy in the hope of enabling us to imagine cinematic responses retooled for the cultural challenges of a new historical moment in need of its landmark energy, invention, and inspiration.

The event is part of the NYU College of Arts and Sciences' Bentson Dean's Lecture Series. It is free and open to the public. Admission is on a first-come, first-served basis.
