Description - Negotiating Lesbian and Gay Subjects by Monica Dorenkamp

Locating Lesbian and Gay Subjects collects some of the best papers from the Fifth Annual Lesbian and Gay Studies Conference, held at Rutgers University in 1991. These essays are distinguished by their concern with "a politics of location", shifting emphasis from gay and/or lesbian identity to the location of these subjects in material experiences or events. Within this framework, the writers examine literature, art, psychoanalysis and personal experience. A number of the essays explore the role specific racial and ethnic constructions in the construction of gay men and/or lesbians, and conversely, the role of sexual identities in forming racial and ethnic constructs. Others are focused on the body and how it it created in reponse to American cultural forces.
