By From page A4 | May 21, 2013

Pamela Demory will discuss her new book, “Queer Love in Film and Television: Critical Essays,” from 5 to 7 p.m. Wednesday, May 29, in 126 Voorhies Hall at UC Davis.

Demory co-edited the book of 22 essays that ask how films and television programs in the past two decades “play with, imitate, subvert, mock, critique and queer the romantic narrative conventions so common in Western culture,” according to a news release.

Demory is a continuing lecturer in the University Writing Program at UCD. She has published articles on film adaptation in journals such as “Literature/Film Quarterly,” “Short Story Criticism,” and in book collections such as “Adaptation Studies: New Approaches” and “The Twilight Mystique.”

Her co-editor, Christopher Pullen, is a senior lecturer in media studies at Bournemouth University. His books include “Documenting Gay Men: Identity and Performance in Reality Television and Documentary Film” and “Gay Identity, New Storytelling and the Media.”
