9780822335139: Impossible Desires: Queer Diasporas and South Asian Public Cultures

A major intervention in queer, postcolonial, and cultural studies, Impossible Subjects rethinks the concept of diaspora through examinations of a range of South Asian diasporic literature, film, and music. Focusing on queer female diasporic subjectivity, Gaytri Gopinath develops a concept of diaspora apart from the logic of blood, authenticity, and patrilineal descent that she argues invariably forms the core of conventional formulations. She explains how the framework of a queer diaspora recuperates those desires, practices, and subjectivities that are rendered unimaginable within the dominant diasporic and nationalist imaginaries. A consideration of queerness becomes a way to challenge nationalist ideologies by restoring what has been rendered illegible or impossible: the impure, inauthentic, and non-reproductive. It suggests alternative ways of conceptualizing community and collectivity across disparate geographic locations, ways based in politics rather than blood or nostalgia for the homeland and times past. Gopinath juxtaposes diverse texts to indicate the range of oppositional practices, subjectivities, and visions of collectivity that fall outside mainstream narratives of colonialism, nationalism, liberal feminism, and gay and lesbian politics and theory. She considers British Asian music of the 1990s alongside alternative media and cultural practices. She examines literature including V. S. Naipaul's classic novel A House for Mr. Biswas, Ismat Chugtai's short story "The Quilt," Monica Ali's Brick Lane, Shyam Selvadurai Funny Face, and Shani Mootoo's Cereus Blooms at Night. Analyzing films including Deepa Mehta's controversial Fire and Mira Nair's Monsoon Wedding, she pays particular attention to how South Asian diasporic feminist filmmakers have reworked Bollywood's strategies of queer representation. Gopinath's readings are dazzling, and her insights and theoretical framework transformative and far-reaching.

Descrizione libro Duke University Press, United States, 2005. Paperback. Condizione libro: New. 223 x 155 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. By bringing queer theory to bear on ideas of diaspora, Gayatri Gopinath produces both a more compelling queer theory and a more nuanced understanding of diaspora. Focusing on queer female diasporic subjectivity, Gopinath develops a theory of diaspora apart from the logic of blood, authenticity, and patrilineal descent that she argues invariably forms the core of conventional formulations. She examines South Asian diasporic literature, film, and music in order to suggest alternative ways of conceptualizing community and collectivity across disparate geographic locations. Her agile readings challenge nationalist ideologies by bringing to light that which has been rendered illegible or impossible within diaspora: the impure, inauthentic, and nonreproductive. Gopinath juxtaposes diverse texts to indicate the range of oppositional practices, subjectivities, and visions of collectivity that fall outside not only mainstream narratives of diaspora, colonialism, and nationalism but also most projects of liberal feminism and gay and lesbian politics and theory. She considers British Asian music of the 1990s alongside alternative media and cultural practices. Among the fictional works she discusses are V. S. Naipaul s classic novel A House for Mr. Biswas, Ismat Chughtai s short story The Quilt, Monica Ali s Brick Lane, Shyam Selvadurai s Funny Boy, and Shani Mootoo s Cereus Blooms at Night. Analyzing films including Deepa Mehta s controversial Fire and Mira Nair s Monsoon Wedding, she pays particular attention to how South Asian diasporic feminist filmmakers have reworked Bollywood s strategies of queer representation and to what is lost or gained in this process of translation. Gopinath s readings are dazzling, and her theoretical framework transformative and far-reaching. Codice libro della libreria AAZ9780822335139
