When She Was Bad by Patricia Pearson

Beyond Carnival : Male Homosexuality in Twentieth-Century Brazil (Worlds of Desire: The Chicago Series on Sexuality, Gender, and Culture) Beyond Carnival : Male Homosexuality in Twentieth-Century Brazil (Worlds of Desire: The Chicago Series on Sexuality, Gender, and Culture) by James Naylor Green

For many foreign observers, Brazil still conjures up a collage of exotic images, ranging from the camp antics of Carmen Miranda to the bronzed girl (or boy) from Ipanema moving sensually over the white sands of Rio's beaches. Among these tropical fantasies is that of the uninhibited and licentious Brazilian homosexual, who expresses uncontrolled sexuality during wild Carnival festivities and is welcomed by a society that accepts fluid sexual identity. However, in Beyond Carnival, the first sweeping cultural history of male homosexuality in Brazil, James Green shatters these exotic myths and replaces them with a complex picture of the social obstacles that confront Brazilian homosexuals.

Ranging from the late nineteenth century to the rise of a politicized gay and lesbian rights movement in the 1970s, Green's study focuses on male homosexual subcultures in Rio de Janeiro and Sao Paulo. He uncovers the stories of men coping with arrests and street violence, dealing with family restrictions, and resisting both a hostile medical profession and moralizing influences of the Church. Green also describes how these men have created vibrant subcultures with alternative support networks for maintaining romantic and sexual relationships and for surviving in an intolerant social environment. He then goes on to trace how urban parks, plazas, cinemas, and beaches are appropriated for same-sex erotic encounters, bringing us into the world of street cruising, male hustlers, and cross-dressing prostitutes.

Through his creative use of police and medical records, newspapers, literature, newsletters, and extensive interviews, Green has woven a fascinating history, the first of its kind for Latin America, that will set the standard for future works.

Foreign Body

Foreign Body is perhaps least badly defined as a deconstructive fanzine. Its purpose is to spread, like a virus. It infects, breaks in, traverses; it gives you a start, in your heads: have you heard of hydrapoetics? 

Since its inception as a zine in 1994, some 1751 days ago, foreign body has rapidly bugged the net. As a para-site, it hopes to host articles that not only fall between the stools of disciplines and cross political boundaries, but which will also subvert the empty traffic online, the telephatic chatter hollowed out by calculable feedback effects of tamed media.

Navigating Spaces:  The Human Textual Body

Web page written and constructed by Laralynn Weiss, Georgetown University.  Arriving from two distinct directions, the words of Trinh and Jameson evoke differing accounts of a contemporary postmodern aesthetic and its relation to the individual body, in regards both to the way in which each specific individual interacts with a continually shifting textual-narrative body and to the location of the physical human body in an external social space...

Feminist Theory and Gender Studies in International Relations

By Christine Sylvester.  A new section of the ISA was launched at the 1990 meetings in Washington, D.C. to promote research and teaching at the nexus of international relations and feminist theory/gender studies. It heralds the partial opening of professional IR to gender- and women-sensitive inquiry, despite the continuing resistances one can read in the pages of mainstream journals. Indeed, J. Ann Tickner points out in her introduction to Gender in International Relations (forthcoming: typescript 18n) that "[w]hile a leading British International Relations journal Millennium devoted a special issue to women and international relations (Vol. 17, no. 3, Winter, 1988), no major American journal of international relations has yet published an article using gender as a category of analysis."... 


Babes on the Web: sex, identity and the homepage

By Marj Kibby.  Early in 1995 a new Web site appeared, 'Babes on the Web'. 'Babes' was the creation of one Robert Toups, and featured a list of women who had Web pages that included a personal photograph. Toups rated them on a scale of one to four on the basis of the appeal their image had for him. As he explains: 'Along with being a capitalist pig, I am a proud male chauvinist pig. As such, I have gathered all the World Wide Web sites of women I could find. Instead of rating them on quality of design, I am grading them on a four Toupsie scale according to their personal pictures. My rating system is totally subjective to my personal tastes and whims.' Toups published the list in alphabetical grouping of page names, giving only the title and rating of each page to which links were provided. Toups clearly expected controversy, advising the offended 'If this page is offensive to you, then go to the National Organisation for Women (NOW) home page and cry to them. Maybe they will organize a cyber protest against my page or maybe you will find something else to bitch about. Either way, I won't care.' A link to the NOW home page was helpfully supplied...
