Entries by Brett Farmer

social sciences >> Cultural Studies

The field of cultural studies has significance for glbtq people because of its concern with social and sexual politics, its focus on subcultural production and consumption, and its commitment to progressive social change.

arts >> Film Spectatorship

Film spectatorship is an integral part of queer culture, affording a process of self-invention and making possible the coded articulation of queer desires and identities.

social sciences >> France

France, the second largest nation in Western Europe, has a rich, if markedly ambivalent, relationship to glbtq people and cultures.

social sciences >> Paris

One of the world's most iconic cities and an influential hub of Western culture, Paris is also a major international glbtq center.
