The 1950s

by Nick Bentley, The 1950s Books available in Docs, PDF, EPUB, Mobi, Textbook, Kindle Format. Download The 1950s book, How did social, cultural and political events in Britain during the 1950s shape modern British fiction? As Britain emerged from the shadow of war into the new decade of the 1950s, the seeds of profound social change were being sown. Exploring the full range of fiction in the 1950s, this volume surveys the ways in which these changes were reflected in British culture. Chapters cover the rise of the 'Angry Young Men', an emerging youth culture and vivid new voices from immigrant and feminist writers. A major critical re-evaluation of the decade, the book covers such writers as Margery Allingham, Kingsley Amis, E. R. Braithwaite, Rodney Garland, Martyn Goff, Attia Hosain, George Lamming, Marghanita Laski, Doris Lessing, Colin MacInnes, Naomi Mitchison, V. S. Naipaul, Barbara Pym, Mary Renault, Sam Selvon, Alan Sillitoe, John Sommerfield, Muriel Spark, J. R. R. Tolkien, Angus Wilson and John Wyndham.

Queer Cities Queer Cultures

by Jennifer V. Evans, Queer Cities Queer Cultures Books available in Docs, PDF, EPUB, Mobi, Textbook, Kindle Format. Download Queer Cities Queer Cultures book, Queer Cities, Queer Cultures examines the formation and make-up of urban subcultures and situates them against the stories we typically tell about Europe and its watershed moments in the post 1945 period. The book considers the degree to which the iconic events of 1945, 1968 and 1989 influenced the social and sexual climate of the ensuing decades, raising questions about the form and structure of the 1960s sexual revolution, and forcing us to think about how we define sexual liberalization - and where, how and on whose terms it occurs. An international team of authors explores the role of America in shaping particular forms of subculture; the significance of changes in legal codes; differing modes of queer consumption and displays of community; the difficult fit of queer (as opposed to gay and lesbian) politics in liberal democracies; the importance of mobility and immigration in modulating queer urban life; the challenge of AIDS; and the arrival of the internet. By exploring the queer histories of cities from Istanbul to Helsinki and Moscow to Madrid, Queer Cities, Queer Cultures makes a significant contribution to our understanding of urban history, European history and the history of gender and sexuality.

Changed For Good

by Stacy Wolf, Changed For Good Books available in Docs, PDF, EPUB, Mobi, Textbook, Kindle Format. Download Changed For Good book, From Adelaide in "Guys and Dolls" to Nina in "In the Heights" and Elphaba in "Wicked," female characters in Broadway musicals have belted and crooned their way into the American psyche. In this lively book, Stacy Wolf illuminates the women of American musical theatre - performers, creators, and characters -- from the start of the cold war to the present day, creating a new, feminist history of the genre. Moving from decade to decade, Wolf first highlights the assumptions that circulated about gender and sexuality at the time. She then looks at the leading musicals to stress the key aspects of the plays as they relate to women, and often finds overlooked moments of empowerment for female audience members. The musicals discussed here are among the most beloved in the canon--"West Side Story," "Cabaret," "A Chorus Line," "Phantom of the Opera," and many others--with special emphasis on the blockbuster "Wicked." Along the way, Wolf demonstrates how the musical since the mid-1940s has actually been dominated by women--women onstage, women in the wings, and women offstage as spectators and fans.

Sapphic Fathers

by Gretchen Schultz, Sapphic Fathers Books available in Docs, PDF, EPUB, Mobi, Textbook, Kindle Format. Download Sapphic Fathers book, Literature that explored female homosexuality flourished in late nineteenth-century France. Poets, novelists, and pornographers, whether Symbolists, Realists, or Decadents, were all part of this literary moment. In Sapphic Fathers, Gretchen Schultz explores how these male writers and their readers took lesbianism as a cipher for apprehensions about sex and gender during a time of social and political upheaval. Tracing this phenomenon through poetry (Baudelaire, Verlaine), erotica and the popular novel (Belot), and literary fiction (Zola, Maupassant, Péladan, Mendès), and into scientific treatises, Schultz demonstrates that the literary discourse on lesbianism became the basis for the scientific and medical understanding of female same-sex desire in France. She also shows that the cumulative impact of this discourse left tangible traces that lasted well beyond nineteenth-century France, persisting into twentieth-century America to become the basis of lesbian pulp fiction after the Second World War.

Queer Retrosexualities

by Nishant Shahani, Queer Retrosexualities Books available in Docs, PDF, EPUB, Mobi, Textbook, Kindle Format. Download Queer Retrosexualities book, Queer Retrosexuality: The Politics of Reparative Return analyzes the cultural, theoretical, and political value of thinking about retrospection in conjunction with queerness. It historically grounds and exemplifies the call for a more “reparatively” informed queer theory in its contextualization of reparation through the return to the 1950s. The book thus contributes and furthers some of the dynamic conversations around the politics of queer temporality and historiography.

Queer Frontiers

by Joseph Allen Boone, Queer Frontiers Books available in Docs, PDF, EPUB, Mobi, Textbook, Kindle Format. Download Queer Frontiers book, “An eloquent and convincingly articulated anthology. The relavance of its contribution cannot be overstated.”—Suzanne Chávez-Silverman, Pomona College “Suggests the expansive—and explosive—significance of queer theory both inside and outside of the academy.”—Bruce Burgett, University of Wisconsin–Madison “In their sophisticated attention not only to sexuality but also to bodies, genders, identities, and the social spaces that structure how desire plays itself out, this host of fresh voices from the queer frontier provides an encouraging preview of the shape of queer studies in the decade ahead.”—Susan Stryker, Stanford University “This wide-ranging anthology takes us unexpected places and makes provocative connections. Queer Frontiers is a stimulating and lively contribution to the ongoing cultural debates.”—Neil Miller, author of Out in the World and In Search of Gay America “What feminism was for the 1970s and 1980s—the galvanizing political and intellectual force reorganizing mainstream culture’s understanding of gender and sexuality—queer theory is for the 1990s.”—from the Introduction by Joseph A. Boone In the first collection of its kind, twenty-three scholars, artists, and critics forecast the impact of queer theory on the future of sexuality. Arguing that queer theory is poised to transform society’s perception of gender itself, this thoroughly interdisciplinary anthology locates itself at the forefront of various debates both inside and outside the academy. From the history of gay and lesbian studies to the emergence of video bars, from an interview with playwright Cherrie Moraga to a photo record of 1950s gay Los Angeles, these original essays tackle the past, present, and future of queer sexuality from all directions. Queer Frontiers brings together the most vital and energetic voices around; whether promising young scholar or veteran of gay activism, each contributor is helping to move the debate into uncharted territory.

Download The Queer Renaissance book, 2013 Honorable Mention, Asian American Studies Association's prize in Literary Studies Part of the American Literatures Initiative Series Why do black characters appear so frequently in Asian American literary works and Asian characters appear in African American literary works in the early twentieth century?Interracial Encounters attempts to answer this rather straightforward literary question, arguing that scenes depicting Black-Asian interactions, relationships, and conflicts capture the constitution of African American and Asian American identities as each group struggled to negotiate the racially exclusionary nature of American identity. In this nuanced study, Julia H. Lee argues that the diversity and ambiguity that characterize these textual moments radically undermine the popular notion that the history of Afro-Asian relations can be reduced to a monolithic, media-friendly narrative, whether of cooperation or antagonism. Drawing on works by Charles Chesnutt, Wu Tingfang, Edith and Winnifred Eaton, Nella Larsen, W.E.B. Du Bois, and Younghill Kang, Interracial Encounters foregrounds how these reciprocal representations emerged from the nation’s pervasive pairing of the figure of the “Negro” and the “Asiatic” in oppositional, overlapping, or analogous relationships within a wide variety of popular, scientific, legal, and cultural discourses. Historicizing these interracial encounters within a national and global context highlights how multiple racial groups shaped the narrative of race and national identity in the early twentieth century, as well as how early twentieth century American literature emerged from that multiracial political context.
