9780415451895: Chinese Male Homosexualities: Memba, Tongzhi and Golden Boy

This book presents a groundbreaking exploration of masculinities and homosexualities amongst Chinese gay men. It provides a sociological account of masculinity, desire, sexuality, identity and citizenship in contemporary Chinese societies, and within the constellation of global culture.

Kong reports the results of an extensive ethnographic study of contemporary Chinese gay men in a wide range of different locations including mainland China, Hong Kong and the Chinese overseas community in London, showing how Chinese gay men live their everyday lives. Relating Chinese male homosexuality to the extensive social and cultural theories on gender, sexuality and the body, postcolonialism and globalisation, the book examines the idea of queer space and numerous 'queer flows' – of capital, bodies, ideas, images, and commodities – around the world.

The book concludes that different gay male identities – such as the conspicuously consuming memba in Hong Kong, the urban tongzhi, the 'money boy' in China and the feminised 'golden boy' in London – emerge in different locations, and are all caught up in the transnational flow of queer cultures which are at once local and global.

Recensione:

"Chinese Male Homosexualities is an original study of what happens when the translation of global gayness 'fails'. What we get are politically astute insights developed in dialogue between Kong and the Chinese gay men he came to know ... in Hong Kong, London and mainland China. Resolutely anti-essentialist about both gay identity and Chinese culture, Kong convincingly argues that contradictions lie at the heart of queer struggles for rights, community and intimacy ... A must read." – Professor Lisa Rofel, University of California, Santa Cruz, USA

"There is no book out there like this one. Navigating between European ideals of liberal recognition and Confucian notions of filial obligation, between neoliberal markets and residues of (post)colonial regulation, between cosmopolitan consumerism and alternative socialist imaginaries, Kong’s ethnography of Chinese gay men in Hong Kong, London, and the PRC is exhilarating and inimitable." – Professor David L. Eng, University of Pennsylvania, USA

"Chinese Male Homosexualities is that rare and joyous thing: an intellectually substantial book that is also a good read. Individual interviewees’ stories bring the intellectual arguments to life." – Professor Chris Berry, Goldsmiths College, University of London, UK

"This is a stunning empirical study of sexual worlds that are rarely associated with China, and a highly creative synthesis of the sociology of sexuality and queer theory. A powerful book that will be of interest to China scholars as well as sexuality researchers." – Arlene Stein, Rutgers University, USA

"This book charts new territory in Chinese studies in the scope of its multi-site approach to the study of Chinese homosexualities, and is written with a lightness of hand that balances a comples analytical framework with lively interview data.  Its readability ensures its easy application in undergraduate teaching, and its sophisticated interweaving of empirical data and theoretical analysis is a 'textbook' example for researchers.  It makes significant contributions to the sociology of homosexuality, 'new queer Asia studies' and, more widely, non-Western, non-normative gender and sexuality studies, as well as debates on globalization and sexual citizenship." - Derek Hird, The China Quarterly, Volume 205 - March 2011

"This is a fascinating book on the subject of Chinese male homosexuality, including not only the life stories of Chinese homosexual men in Hong Kong but also those in London and the Chinese mainland... Kong has woven together different strands of sexuality studies to date in making sense of a postmodern movement of gays and lesbians in Hong Kong and beyond, ranging from those labeled as 'good consumer citizens', to subversive art and media adventurists, to those who take to the street for public contestation of sexual rights. The rich literature alluded to and the careful documentation provide readers with an excellent guide for their understanding and ongoing study of Chinese male homosexuality for the future." - Angela Wong Wai Ching, Department of Cultural and Religious Studies, The Chinese University of Hong Kong; Asian Anthropology, Volume 10 (2011)

Descrizione libro Taylor Francis Ltd, United Kingdom, 2010. Hardback. Condizione libro: New. New.. 236 x 160 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****.This book presents a groundbreaking exploration of masculinities and homosexualities amongst Chinese gay men. It provides a sociological account of masculinity, desire, sexuality, identity and citizenship in contemporary Chinese societies, and within the constellation of global culture. Kong reports the results of an extensive ethnographic study of contemporary Chinese gay men in a wide range of different locations including mainland China, Hong Kong and the Chinese overseas community in London, showing how Chinese gay men live their everyday lives. Relating Chinese male homosexuality to the extensive social and cultural theories on gender, sexuality and the body, postcolonialism and globalisation, the book examines the idea of queer space and numerous queer flows - of capital, bodies, ideas, images, and commodities - around the world.
