9780822323655: Getting Medieval: Sexualities and Communities, Pre- and Postmodern (Series Q)

In Getting Medieval Carolyn Dinshaw examines communities—dissident and orthodox—in late-fourteenth and early-fifteenth-century England to create a new sense of queer history. Reaching beyond both medieval and queer studies, Dinshaw demonstrates in this challenging work how intellectual inquiry into pre-modern societies can contribute invaluably to current issues in cultural studies. In the process, she makes important connections between past and present cultures that until now have not been realized.
In her pursuit of historical analyses that embrace the heterogeneity and indeterminacy of sex and sexuality, Dinshaw examines canonical Middle English texts such as the Canterbury Tales and The Book of Margery Kempe. She examines polemics around the religious dissidents known as the Lollards as well as accounts of prostitutes in London to address questions of how particular sexual practices and identifications were normalized while others were proscribed. By exploring contemporary (mis)appropriations of medieval tropes in texts ranging from Quentin Tarantino’s Pulp Fiction to recent Congressional debates on U.S. cultural production, Dinshaw demonstrates how such modern media can serve to reinforce constrictive heteronormative values and deny the multifarious nature of history. Finally, she works with and against the theories of Michel Foucault, Homi K. Bhabha, Roland Barthes, and John Boswell to show how deconstructionist impulses as well as historical perspectives can further an understanding of community in both pre- and postmodern societies.
This long-anticipated volume will be indispensible to medieval and queer scholars and will be welcomed by a larger cultural studies audience.

Review:

Carolyn Dinshaw, a Chaucer scholar and cofounding editor of GLQ: A Journal of Gay and Lesbian Studies, reveals exceptional erudition and playful good sense in her study of the contradictory medieval discourse on same-sex relations, with special attention to the 14th-century Lollard reform movement in England. At the crossroads between medieval studies and cultural studies, she both honors and argues with the groundbreaking historical projects of Michel Foucault, John Boswell, Eve Kosofsky Sedgwick, and Homi K. Bhabha. In addition to looking into Chaucer's The Cook's Tale, the Lollards' Twelve Conclusions, and other conventional fare, she flexes her poststructural muscles in weird but lively excursions into Robert Gluck's 1994 novel Margery Kempe and Quentin Tarantino's film Pulp Fiction. Ultimately, her aim is to suggest new ways of analyzing medieval sexual discourse, with its "indeterminacies, contradictions, slippages," and of making relations across time with those distant discourses, people, places, and things "in their very indeterminateness." --Regina Marler

From the Publisher:

“Carolyn Dinshaw is preeminent for the subtlety with which she discloses gendered turmoil in historically situated texts. I can hardly wait to have Getting Medieval on my own shelf, to have its adventurous deployments of ‘the touch of the queer’ available for frequent consultation.”—Paul Strohm, University of Oxford

“This book has a beautiful range, both among premodern English discourses and in postmodern theory, and Dinshaw really and truly does make these different textualities touch.”—Louise O. Fradenburg, University of California, Santa Barbara

“A wonderful book. The things addressed are so heterogeneous—their sheer distance from one another is a kind of elegance.”—Robert Glück, San Francisco State University
