About the Authors
  • In Queer Fictions of the Past, Scott Bravmann explores the complexity of lesbian and gay engagement with history and considers how historical discourses animate the present. Characterising historical representations as dynamic conversations between then and now, he demonstrates their powerful role in constructing present identities, differences, politics, and communities. In particular, his is the first book to explore the ways in which lesbians and gay men have used history to define themselves as social, cultural, and political subjects.

    • Only book available exploring the role of historical representation in lesbian and gay studies
    • Combines critical readings of historical texts with theoretical and political analysis
    • Considers importance of recent major events eg Stonewall riots and history of ancient past to contemporary social movements
