On 13 April 2016 at King’s College London, Catherine Grant and Jaap Kooijman will have a conversation with celebrated cinema and media studies scholar Richard Dyer, author of Stars (1979), Heavenly Bodies (1986), Now You See It (1990), Only Entertainment (1992), The Matter of Images (1993), White (1997), The Culture of Queers (2002), Pastiche (2007), In the Space of a Song (2012), Lethal Repetition (2015), and others. Rather than discussing these books separately or chronologically the conversation will focus on recurring themes – such as ‘pleasure’, ‘obvious’, ‘queer’ – that run through Dyer’s work, raising questions about the ways in which these works remain relevant in cinema and media studies today. The event is hosted by the film studies department of King’s College London and open to the public on a limited seating basis. The conversation will be published in the forthcoming Spring 2016 issue of NECSUS.
