About this title


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.

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.
