About

David Caron's primary research interests include: the literature, culture and visual arts of HIV/AIDS; queer and LGBT cultural productions in France and the francophone world; gay neighborhoods; queer theory; and medical discourse analysis. Caron has also worked on testimonial texts by women in Nazi concentration camps, with a focus on Charlotte Delbo. Caron's current project deals with transnational queer cinema as it intersects with questions of illness, disability, care, and global migration. It primarily covers films by directors from Thailand, Taiwan, Vietnam, France, Portugal and the US.
