主講人：Dr. Jui-an Chou
講者簡介：Jui-an Chou is a postdoctoral fellow at the International Center for Cultural Studies, National Chiao Tung University. She received her PhD from the Program in Literature at Duke University. Her research is at the intersection of literary and cultural studies, and she focuses on gender/sexuality, queer theory, East Asian popular culture, and mid-twentieth century fiction.
演講簡介：Early-to-mid twentieth century saw a proliferation of what I call “cross-gender homoerotic fiction.” The reception history of male homoerotic novels written by women during this period takes us through a fascinating tour of the rise and fall of identity politics in the Western world. Having been accused of inauthenticity and appropriation, and despite the efforts of queer reading, many of these texts remain in obscurity today. This talk brings in Boys’ Love—the postmodern East-Asian genre and subculture—as a theoretical intervention that provides an alternative framework for reading cross-gender homoerotic texts.
