FTDM Professor Kylo-Patrick Hart’s New Academic Journal Debuts

The inaugural issue of Queer Studies in Media & Popular Culture, the new academic journal launched by founding co-editor (and FTDM professor) Kylo-Patrick Hart and published by Intellect Ltd.QueerStudiesCover, is hot off the press. It contains Professor Hart’s discussion of a handful of the most intriguing queer media offerings of all time along with a series of research articles and reviews that cumulatively focus on particularly noteworthy films (including Brokeback Mountain, Hedwig and the Angry Inch, I Am Jazz: A Family in Transition, Shortbus, Soldier’s Girl, and Tangerine), television programs (including Bewitched, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Stargate SG-1, and Undressed), and other media offerings (including the numerous online videos of the It Gets Better Project and the book Geisha of a Different Kind: Race and Sexuality in Gaysian America). The journal’s primary aim is to publish cutting-edge, peer-reviewed scholarship on a wide range of subjects and phenomena at the intersection of media/popular culture and queerness in gender/sexuality.
