The Lesbian and gay studies reader by David M Halperin( Book )

10 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 1,058 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The lesbian and gay studies reader is the biggest and most comprehensive multi-disciplinary anthology of critical work in lesbian/gay studies. Comprising scholarship, criticism, commentary, and political analysis, lesbian/gay studies is one of the fastest growing fields in contemporary thought. Its influence is changing the shape of every branch of learning in the humanities and social sciences. Bringing together forty-two groundbreaking essays--many of them already classics--this collection provides a much-needed introduction to the contemporary state of lesbian/gay studies, extensively illustrating the range, scope, diversity, appeal, and power of the work currently being done in the field. Featuring essays by such prominent scholars as Judith Butler, John D'Emilio, Kobena Mercer, Adrienne Rich, Gayle Rubin, and Eve Kosofsky Sedgwick, The lesbian and gay studies reader explores a multitude of sexual, ethnic, racial, and socio-economic experiences. Ranging across disciplines including history, literature, critical theory, cultural studies, African American studies, ethnic studies, sociology, anthropology, psychology, classics, and philosophy, this anthology traces the inscription of sexual meanings in all forms of cultural expression. Representing the best and most significant English language work in the field, The lesbian and gay studies reader addresses topics such as butch-fem roles, the cultural construction of gender, lesbian separatism, feminist theory, AIDS, safe-sex education, colonialism, S/M, Oscar Wilde, Gertrude Stein, children's books, black nationalism, popular films, Susan Sontag, the closet, homophobia, Freud, Sappho, the media, the hijras of India, Robert Mapplethorpe, and the politics of representation. It also contains an extensive bibliographical essay which will provide readers with an invaluable guide to further reading. In the tradition of Routledge's Cultural studies and Unequal sisters, The lesbian and gay studies reader marks a critical moment in the development of the field. It will be essential reading for anyone--gay or straight--interested in the history of sexuality, sexual politics, and gender studies
One hundred years of homosexuality : and other essays on Greek love by David M Halperin( Book )

20 editions published between 1989 and 2009 in 3 languages and held by 830 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

How to be gay by David M Halperin( Book )

13 editions published between 2012 and 2014 in English and German and held by 786 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

No one raises an eyebrow if you suggest that a guy who arranges his furniture just so, likes techno music or show tunes, and knows all of Bette Davis's best lines by heart might, just possibly, be gay. But if you assert that male homosexuality is a cultural practice, expressive of a unique subjectivity and a distinctive relation to mainstream society, people will protest. This, they will say, is just a stereotype. David Halperin, a pioneer of LGBTQ studies, dares to suggest that gayness is a specific way of being that gay men must learn from one another in order to become who they are. Carrying forward the notorious undergraduate course of the same title that he taught at the University of Michigan, provoking cries of outrage from both the right-wing media and the gay press, Halperin concludes that the genius of gay culture resides in some of its most despised features: its aestheticism, snobbery, melodrama, adoration of glamour, caricatures of women, and obsession with mothers. The insights and unfazed critical intelligence displayed by gay culture, Halperin argues, have much to offer the mainstream.--From publisher description

Saint Foucault : towards a gay hagiography by David M Halperin( Book )

Articulates why Michel Foucault has become a hero for the gay movement.

What do gay men want? : an essay on sex, risk, and subjectivity by David M Halperin( Book )

11 editions published between 2007 and 2010 in English and French and held by 358 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

What Do Gay Men Want? explores some of the possibilities.Unlike most writers on the topic of gay men and risky sex, David Halperin liberates gay male subjectivity from psychology, demonstrating the insidious ways in which psychology's defining opposition between the normal and the pathological subjects homosexuality to medical reasoning and revives a whole set of unexamined moral assumptions about "good" sex and "bad" sex.In particular, Halperin champions neglected traditions of queer thought, including both literary and popular discourses, by drawing on the work of well-known figures like Jean Genet and neglected ones like Marcel Jouhandeau. He shows how the long history of of gay men's uses of "abjection" can offer an alternative, nonmoralistic model for thinking about gay male subjectivity, something which is urgently needed in the age of barebacking. -- Publisher description
