RAW - PrEP, Pedagogy, and the Politics of Barebacking (Hardcover): Ricky Varghese RAW - PrEP, Pedagogy, and the Politics of Barebacking (Hardcover)
Ricky Varghese; Afterword by Tim Dean
R1,921 Discovery Miles 19 210 Ships in 10 - 15 working days

RAW addresses the question of sex without condoms, or barebacking, in the age of PrEP, a drug that virtually eliminates the transmission of HIV. Writing out of the history of the AIDS crisis, the authors in RAW expand the study of barebacking into new areas, such as its appearance within lesbian, heterosexual, and BDSM communities and its implications for teaching critical sexology.

Unlimited Intimacy - Reflections on the Subculture of Barebacking (Paperback): Tim Dean Unlimited Intimacy - Reflections on the Subculture of Barebacking (Paperback)
Tim Dean
R579 Discovery Miles 5 790 Ships in 7 - 13 working days

Barebacking--when gay men deliberately abandon condoms and embrace unprotected sex--has incited a great deal of shock, outrage, anger, and even disgust, but very little contemplation. Purposely flying in the face of decades of safe-sex campaigning and HIV/AIDS awareness initiatives, barebacking is unquestionably radical behavior, behavior that most people would rather condemn than understand. Thus the time is ripe for "Unlimited Intimacy," Tim Dean's riveting investigation into barebacking and the distinctive subculture that has grown around it.

Audacious and undeniably provocative, Dean's profoundly reflective account is neither a manifesto nor an apology; instead, it is a searching analysis that tests the very limits of the study of sex in the twenty-first century. Dean's extensive research into the subculture provides a tour of the scene's bars, sex clubs, and Web sites; offers an explicit but sophisticated analysis of its pornography; and documents his own personal experiences in the culture. But ultimately, it is HIV that animates the controversy around barebacking, and "Unlimited Intimacy" explores how barebackers think about transmitting the virus--especially the idea that deliberately sharing it establishes a new network of kinship among the infected. According to Dean, intimacy makes us vulnerable, exposes us to emotional risk, and forces us to drop our psychological barriers. As a committed experiment in intimacy without limits--one that makes those metaphors of intimacy quite literal--barebacking thus says a great deal about how intimacy works.

Written with a fierce intelligence and uncompromising nerve, "Unlimited Intimacy" will prove to be a milestone in our understanding of sexual behavior.

Homosexuality and Psychoanalysis (Paperback, New): Tim Dean, Christopher Lane Homosexuality and Psychoanalysis (Paperback, New)
Tim Dean, Christopher Lane
R1,103 Discovery Miles 11 030 Ships in 7 - 13 working days

Why has homosexuality always fascinated and vexed psychoanalysis? This groundbreaking collection of original essays reconsiders the troubled relationship between same-sex desire and psychoanalysis, assessing homosexuality's status in psychoanalytic theory and practice, as well as the value of psychoanalytic ideas for queer theory. The contributors, each distinguished clinicians and specialists, reexamine works by Freud, Klein, Reich, Lacan, Laplanche, and their feminist and queer revisionists. Sharing a commitment to conscious and unconscious forms of homosexual desire, they offer new perspectives on pleasure, perversion, fetishism, disgust, psychosis, homophobia, AIDS, otherness, and love. Including two previously untranslated essays by Michel Foucault, "Homosexuality and Psychoanalysis will interest cultural theorists, psychoanalysts, and anyone concerned with the fate of sexuality in our time.

Marking the tenth anniversary of Tim Dean's Unlimited Intimacy, Raw returns to the question of sex without condoms, or barebacking, a timely topic in the age of PrEP, a drug that virtually eliminates the transmission of HIV. "Essential reading for anyone interested in the politics of sex, sexuality and sexual representation in the 21st century." -John Mercer, author of Gay Pornography "Finally, queer theory returns to a topic it has had surprisingly little to say about: sex! Underpinning these essays is a thrilling wager: that desire demands discourse but resists rationalization." -Damon R. Young, author of Making Sex Public and Other Cinematic Fantasies "A major contribution to research. It opens up the discourse on barebacking to a varity of perspectives and theoretical arguments, and makes clear that the topic remains relevant." -John Paul Ricco, author of The Decision Between Us "Raw provides an account of the state of queer-theoretical scholarship on bareback today, and makes a pluralising and distinctive contribution to that body of work, significantly broadening this field of scholarship." -Oliver Davis, editor of Bareback Sex and Queer Theory across Three National Contexts (France, UK, US) Contributors: Jonathan A.

A Time for the Humanities - Futurity and the Limits of Autonomy (Paperback): Tim Dean, Ewa Plonowska Ziarek A Time for the Humanities - Futurity and the Limits of Autonomy (Paperback)

A Future for the Humanities: Praxis, Heteronomy, Invention brings together an international roster of renowned scholars from disciplines such as philosophy, political theory, intellectual history, and literary studies to address the pressing question of the future of the humanities. Whereas many recent works have addressed this question in primarily pragmatic terms, this book seeks to examine its conceptual foundations. What notions of futurity, of the human, and of finitude underlie recurring anxieties about the humanities' future in our current geopolitical situation? How can we think about the unpredictable and unthought dimensions of praxis implicit in the very notion of futurity? Although hailing from disparate disciplines and taking different angles on these questions, the essays we have assembled argue collectively that the uncertainty of the future represents both an opportunity for critical engagement and the very matrix for invention. Such a broadly conceived notion of invention, or cultural poiesis, questions the key assumptions and tasks of a whole range of practices in the humanities, beginning with critique, artistic practices, and intellectual inquiry, and ending with technology, emancipatory politics, and ethics. The essays in this volume discuss a wide range of key figures (e.g., Deleuze, Freud, Lacan, Foucault, Kristeva, Irigaray), problems (e.g., becoming; kinship and the foreign; "disposable populations" within a global political economy; queerness and the death drive; the parapoetic; electronic textuality; invention and accountability; political and social reform in Latin America), disciplines and methodologies (philosophy; art and art history; visuality; politicaltheory; criticism and critique; psychoanalysis; gender analysis; architecture; literature; art). This volume should be required reading for all who feel a deep commitment to the humanities, its practices, and its future. It will prove indispensable to a wide range of scholars, practitioners, and disciplines: philosophy, history, literature, political science, visual studies, art history, gender studies, film studies, psychoanalysis, poetics, architecture, technology studies, and art.

Beyond Sexuality (Hardcover): Tim Dean Beyond Sexuality (Hardcover)
Tim Dean
R2,262 Discovery Miles 22 620 Ships in 7 - 13 working days

"Beyond Sexuality" points contemporary sexual politics in a radically new direction. Combining a psychoanalytic emphasis on the unconscious with a deep respect for the historical variability of sexual identities, this original work of queer theory makes the case for viewing erotic desire as fundamentally impersonal. Tim Dean develops a reading of Jacques Lacan that--rather than straightening out this notoriously difficult French psychoanalyst--brings out the queer tensions and productive incoherencies in his account of desire.
Dean shows how the Lacanian unconscious "deheterosexualizes" desire, and along the way he reveals how psychoanalytic thinkers as well as queer theorists have failed to exploit the full potential of this conception of desire. The book elaborates this by investigating social fantasies about homosexuality and AIDS, including gay men's own fantasies about sex and promiscuity, in an attempt to illuminate the challenges facing safe-sex education. Taking on many shibboleths in contemporary psychoanalysis and queer theory--and taking no prisoners--"Beyond Sexuality" offers an antidote to hagiographical strains in recent work on psychoanalysis, Foucault, and sexuality.

Porn Archives (Hardcover): Tim Dean, Steven Ruszczycky, David Squires Porn Archives (Hardcover)
Tim Dean, Steven Ruszczycky, David Squires
R2,551 Discovery Miles 25 510 Out of stock

While sexually explicit writing and art have been around for millennia, pornography--as an aesthetic, moral, and juridical category--is a modern invention. The contributors to "Porn Archives" explore how the production and proliferation of pornography has been intertwined with the emergence of the archive as a conceptual and physical site for preserving, cataloguing, and transmitting documents and artifacts. By segregating and regulating access to sexually explicit material, archives have helped constitute pornography as a distinct genre. As a result, porn has become a site for the production of knowledge, as well as the production of pleasure.
The essays in this collection address the historically and culturally varied interactions between porn and the archive. Topics range from library policies governing access to sexually explicit material to the growing digital archive of "war porn," or eroticized combat imagery; and from same-sex amputee porn to gay black comic book superhero porn. Together the pieces trace pornography as it crosses borders, transforms technologies, consolidates sexual identities, and challenges notions of what counts as legitimate forms of knowledge. The collection concludes with a valuable resource for scholars: a list of pornography archives held by institutions around the world.
"Contributors." Jennifer Burns Bright, Eugenie Brinkema, Joseph Bristow, Robert Caserio, Ronan Crowley, Tim Dean, Robert Dewhurst, Lisa Downing, Frances Ferguson, Loren Glass, Harri Kahla, Marcia Klotz, Prabha Manuratne, Mireille Miller-Young, Nguyen Tan Hoang, John Paul Ricco, Steven Ruszczycky, Melissa Schindler, Darieck Scott, Caitlin Shanley, Ramon Soto-Crespo, David Squires, Linda Williams
