Paperback Originals and the Origins of Contemporary Gay Literature

Tuesday, January 11, 2011 - 12:55pm
Jaime Harker/ University of Mississippi

Novels known collectively as "out gay pulp"—paperback originals published with accelerating frequency in the 1960s—have received increasing attention, from popular collections like John Preston's Flesh and the Word, Michael Bronski's Pulp Friction and Susan Stryker's Queer Pulp to the circulation of pulp covers in postcards, address books, and posters. Scholarly attention to this phenomenon has been more sporadic; an excellent bibliography by Tom Norman, essays by David Bergman and John Howard, and those by the various contributors to The Golden Age of Gay Fiction haven't yet spurred a deeper, more engaged critical interest.

This conference aims to explore the interface between creative/critical forms of representation and the claim to material/ontological human and animal rights. It will examine the concepts 'minority', 'identity', 'rights' and 'representation' and their possible intersections. It will also interrogate categories and politics of identity, such as race, ethnicity, gender, sexuality, religion, age, and disability, as well as the critical disciplines that invest in these, such as feminism, postcolonialism, and cultural studies.
