Nikola Stepić

My research looks at visual representations of cities as interfaces of sexuality and desire, with a specific interest in the relationship between the tradition of city film and queer cinema.

Nikola Stepić works in the fields of Film Studies, English and Art History. His current research deals with the city as both a readable interface of desire and sexuality, and as a set of technologies that contribute to the formation of sexual identity. Nikola has published and presented widely on his interests in gender and sexuality studies, material cultures of masculinity, popular culture, porn studies and HIV/AIDS. His work can be read in Angelaki Journal of the Theoretical Humanities, the European Journal of American Studies, The Journal of Religion and Culture and others. An international student from Serbia, he resides in Montreal.
