Spyridon Chairetis recently defended his doctoral thesis at Oxford University, entitled ‘Queering the Greek Television “Comedy”: Popular Texts, Dissident Readings’. Chairetis’s general research interests and publications centre around the intersections of gender, sexuality, embodiment, and space in Greek media (cinema and television) and culture. He is the co-author of ‘Gender and Identity in Greece, Albania, and Bosnia Herzegovina’ (forthcoming, ABC-CLIO, 2020) and the author of ‘Only here I get what I want: Intersections of gender, (homo)sexuality and age in Athenian porn theatres’ (forthcoming, Themelio 2020). He is currently pursuing an academic residency at the Arts, Sciences and Humanities Centre of Catalonia, Spain.
