Another Country: Queer Anti-Urbanism (Sexual Cultures) by Scott Herring PDF

By Scott Herring

The city has been the close to specific concentration of queer students and queer cultures in the US. Asking us to appear past the towns at the coasts, Scott Herring attracts a brand new map, monitoring how rural queers have answered to this myopic frame of mind. Interweaving a variety of disciplines—art, media, literature, functionality, and style studies—he develops a longer critique of ways metronormativity saturates LGBTQ politics, art, and feedback. To counter this perfect, he deals a colourful conception of queer anti-urbanism that refuses to brush aside the agricultural as a cultural backwater.

Impassioned and provocative, Another Country expands the chances of queer reviews past its urban limits. Herring leads his readers from faeries within the rural Midwest to pictures of white supremacists within the deep South, from Roland Barthes’s obsession with Parisian type to a image memoir via Alison Bechdel set within the Appalachian Mountains, and from cubist work in Lancaster County to lesbian separatist communes at the northern California coast. the result's a wholly unique account of ways queer reviews can—and should—get to a different country.
