Beyond Binaries: Sex, Sexualities and Gender in the Lusophone World

Paulo Pepe, Ana Raquel Fernandes

Research output: Book/ReportScholarly edition


This volume sets out to investigate queer literature and cinema, exploring in particular the intersection of issues of gender and Lusophone culture. The essays collected here present individual case studies within a queer theoretical framework, examining the ways in which queer identities are constructed and addressed through different types of cultural production. More specifically, they consider Portuguese and Lusophone socio-cultural contexts and the representation of gender in popular culture, as well as the centrality of literature and cinema in the subversion of heteronormative social norms.
