How to be gay by David M Halperin ( Book )
14 editions published between 2012 and 2014 in English and held by 1,251 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
The Lesbian and gay studies reader by Henry Abelove ( Book )
9 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 1,072 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 )
14 editions published between 1989 and 2009 in English and Greek, Modern and held by 791 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Examining love, sex and gender in the ancient Greek world, the author documents the existence in ancient Greece of a radically unfamiliar set of attitudes and behaviours, institutions and social practices
Saint Foucault : towards a gay hagiography by David M Halperin ( Book )
17 editions published between 1995 and 1997 in English and held by 780 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
My work has had nothing to do with gay liberation,' Michel Foucault reportedly told an admirer in 1975. And indeed there is scarcely more than a passing mention of homosexuality in Foucault's scholarly writings. So why has Foucault, who died of AIDS in 1984, become a powerful source of both personal and political inspiration to an entire generation of gay activists?; Offering a no-holds barred rebuke to recent criticism of Foucault by Camille Paglia, Richard Mohr, biographer James Miller, and others, Saint Foucault is an uncompromising and impassioned defence of the late French philosopher and historian. A sometimes scathing, sometimes moving exploration of truth and sexual politics, it shows Foucault as a galvanizing thinker who will continue to serve as a model for gay intellectuals and activists
Before sexuality : the construction of erotic experience in the ancient Greek world ( Book )
11 editions published between 1989 and 1990 in English and held by 760 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In these fifteen essays, which explore the iconography, politics, ethics, poetry, and medical practices of ancient Greece, eminent cultural historians and classicists not only discuss sex, but demonstrate how norms, practices, and even the very definitions of what counts as sexual activity have varied significantly over time. - Homosexuality passim (index)
How to do the history of homosexuality by David M Halperin ( Book )
10 editions published between 2002 and 2004 in English and held by 604 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In this work David Halperin revisits and re-examines the argument he set forth in 'One hundred years of homosexuality': the idea that both hetero- and homo- sexuality are not biologically determined but, instead, socially constructed

8 editions published in 1983 in English and Undetermined and held by 580 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
What do gay men want? : an essay on sex, risk, and subjectivity by David M Halperin ( Book )
7 editions published between 2007 and 2009 in English and held by 323 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

En analysant ces oeuvres jusque dans leur détail, chaque conférencier parcourt la jointure entre érotique et subjectivité, montrant à quel point elle constitue un des plus puissants leviers de la création artistique
