"This is an original, timely, and important intervention in the field of Queer Studies, providing a very convincing argument for the essentially queer nature of nostalgia, nostalgic practices, and nostalgia-inspired cultural production. It is a welcome addition to the body of literature on and around these issues." - Elisabetta Girelli, University of St Andrews, UKVom Verlag:
Queer Nostalgia in Cinema and Pop Culture explores popular representations of queer nostalgia in films, animation and music videos as means of empowerment, re-evaluating and recreating lost gay youth, coming to terms with one's sexual otherness and homoerotic desires, celebrating queer counterculture, and creatively challenging homophobia, chauvinism, ageism and racism. In particular, Queer Nostalgia engages in a critical discussion of nostalgia-in-motion, the significance of 'femininostlagia' (gay men's effeminate nostalgia), the intricate relationship between queer nostalgia, martyrdom and emergent queer mythology, the contribution of nostalgia to 'autoqueerography' (queer autobiography inspired by women's dissident autobiography or 'autogynography'), and the interrelationship between ethnic and queer nostalgias.
