Book Description

Sept. 20 1991 0415902371 978-0415902373 1
Lesbians and gays have gone from "coming out," to "acting up," to "outing," meanwhile radically redefining society's views on sexuality and gender. The essays in Inside/Out employ a variety of approaches (psychoanalysis, deconstruction, semiotics, and discourse theory) to investigate representations of sex and sexual difference in literature, film, video, music, and photography. Engaging the figures of divas, dykes, vampires and queens, the contributors address issues such as AIDS, pornography, pedagogy, authorship, and activism. Inside/Out shifts the focus from sex to sexual orientation, provoking a reconsideration of the concepts of the sexual and the political.

Product Description

From Library Journal

Most of the 17 essays presented here were initially delivered in conference paper form at the National Lesbian and Gay Studies Conference or at various professional associations; some were commissioned specifically for this volume. The essays cover "at least a portion of the work currently being done in a variety of mediums (literature, film, video, music, photography) across a spectrum of theoretical approaches (psychoanalysis, deconstruction, semiotics, discourse theory)." For readers unfamiliar with the particularities of each discipline, the jargon-laden, cumbersome texts, extensively footnoted, may be overwhelmingly daunting, no matter how fascinating the topics addressed. For subject collections only.
- James E. Van Buskirk, San Francisco P.L.

Review

This is the first anthology to offer full-strength, state-of-the-art lesbian and gay theory in all its immediacy, all its sophistication. `Theory' means something new in the hands of these two generations of passionate activist/intellectuals --Eve Kosofsky Sedgwick, author of Epistemology of the Closet.

First Sentence
At first I considered writing a different sort of essay, one with a philosophical tone: the "being" of being homosexual. Read the first page

2.0 out of 5 stars An excellent book but problems with the edition I purchased Feb. 19 2006
By M. Brady - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
I've read excerpts from this book before, specifically the excellent Judith Butler essay. However the edition of the book I purchased printed pages 75-106 in place of pages 27-58, while printing the same pages in sequence as well.
