Questions related to Queer Theory
Doing my research on violent treatments of enemies and prisoners of war in New Kingdom Egypt I realized that war is closely related to hunt in both textual and visual representations, but also that gender and religion play a big role.
I explored how these ideas are reflected on the treatments of enemies and prisoners of war and realized that in relation to all of the above mentioned ideas enemies and prisoners of war can be dehumanized or feminized through these treatments. Thus, I was wondering if I am dealing here with frames in Butler's terms?
i hoping you might be able to help me with a reference for the idea that linear thinking is not a good way to manage social-ecological systems?
Hi everyone, I'm looking for some articles that discuss the historical importance of the LGBTQ community. I'm specifically looking for theory papers that talk about why a sense of connectedness to the LGBTQ community is so important for many LGBTQ individuals. I've been looking at papers in the areas of sociology and queer theory, but I'm interested in articles from any discipline. Thanks!
I am looking for literature on childfree / childless lesbian, bisexual and queer women by choice, specifically on reasons and motivations for being childfree. I was wondering if anyone could recommend some research on this topic.
Thanks for you help.
I find it sad that since the 70s queer theory has been researched and published, yet still teachers in EAL and institutions have not quite caught up with the literature in curriculum, pedagogy and teaching. What is the obstacle here?
Looking for research to help a poet writing thesis: Queer Theory to analyze early queer poets' and contemporary queer poets' ways of addressing and writing about identity and sexuality with an emphasis on Pat Parker and Adrienne Rich.
I'm trying to get into Lee edelman and have hear that it requries a good understanding of lacanian pyschoanalysis specifically about the Lack and the death drive - I would greatly appreciate it if someone could explain to me what it was before i jumped into it
I was after papers, explanations and examples on how to analyse interview scrips using queer theory in order to explore why sexual identity is not considered in explaining health concerns outside of mental health and STIs.
I plan to conduct Ph.D. on media studies and the proposal that I am working on entails masculinity studies and media; the convergence of the two. Now I notice something after I wrote up the proposal: I am keen to integrate psychology, sociology, feminist theory, cultural studies, media studies, queer theory, and gender studies. Media Ph.D. programs in media and cultural studies often do integrate various disciplines, as you shall know. However, I am particularly interested in studying a non-visible sexual minority group in Turkey; margin in a margin who are under-researched. The most public those minorities get is on LBRTD (Location based real time dating) apps for men who have sex with men (MSM) and I am keen to observe their rhetoric and strategies of visibility and doing gender on these media platforms. However, since there is a dearth in sociological or psychological research about this particular sexual minority group, I presume that a sociological and psychological study of their offline rhetoric is also vital: How does the rhetoric of this sexual minority converge and diversify in-between online and offline platforms? So, as much as I wish to limit the study on understanding this form of emerging masculinity in the specific media platform, I also wish to conduct a psychological/sociological research on the offline rhetoric of the group. Then, however, I feel like I am drifting off the course of media studies because perhaps half of my study will entail a pure sociological/psychological research with no focus on media when I explore the offline rhetoric.
How do I manage to synthesize those online and offline realities in a single strand of research? Is it legit to conduct pure sociological/psychological research on offline artifacts in a media studies Ph.D. Program? Or do I always need to connect it with media? Since I have a challenging configuration here, I wonder if it is out of line to investigate offline cultural artifacts with no media focus in a media studies. I basically want to analyze both online and offline rhetorics and discourses and at the end see how they converge and diversify..
I am a bit confused I suppose. So I wonder what you think about this. I shall also report that I will use a mixed methods study with three sequential phases; first phase is on the online rhetoric in a specific media artifact, and second phase is a Quantiative research on the offline rhetoric of the sexual minority group, and third one is a qualitative research about both online and offline rhetorics.
I hope I made myself clear,
I would love to hear your thoughts on this.
I'm beginning my research in this topic and I'd like to improve my literature review.
