FEMINISMS Book Launch & Other Feminist Film Fun...

Extremely proud and excited to be a contributor to Feminisms: Diversity, Difference and Multiplicity in Contemporary Cinema, edited by Anna Backman Rogers and the legendary Laura Mulvey. I'll (nervously) be talking about my chapter on queer feminist film theory next Saturday, 25th April, 2.30, at Birkbeck Cinema in London. The event is FREE, but do reserve a place

The following Friday 1st May, 7pm, I'll be at the Horse Hospital in London, co-hosting Club des Femmes' and Verso Books night of films and conversation for the re-launch of Shulamith Firestone's Dialectic of Sex. It's sold out (!) but there are a few tickets available on the door. We'll be screening Elisabeth Subrin's SHULIE (1997), and I interviewed her for The F-Word, online soon.

On Wednesday May 6th, 7pm, I'll be at the QUAD in Derby, at the Film Festival, taking part in a Sight & Sound panel on female film critics - I'll be talking about the brilliant bell hooks, who I wrote about for S&S here.

Then on Saturday May 16th, it's back to Firestone, for an eventful study day at Queen Mary University of London, 10am-6pm. It's free, includes lunch and tea, and places can be reserved here. Verso will be there on the day with copies of the book at the special price of £5.

And a sneak preview of what's coming up in October: the launch of my book, Political Animals: The New Feminist Cinema... Regular updates on Tumblr.
