Queeres jüdisches Leben auf der Leinwand

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review


This piece explores the clashing preconceptions and elective affinities regarding queerness and Jewishness in the filmic representation of intersectional queer and Jewish sensibilities from the 1980s to the present, a period in which postmodern paradigms came to the fore in popular culture, academic theory and alternative community politics. As I argue, these films convey a tug and pull between religious tradition and cultural innovation; between the old essentialisms and new fluidities associated with ethnicized, gendered and sexualized constellations; and between Israel and the Diaspora, with varying relevance to cosmopolitanist and nationalistic discourses.
