9780822323495: Queer Iberia: Sexualities, Cultures, and Crossings from the Middle Ages to the Renaissance (Series Q)

Martyred saints, Moors, Jews, viragoes, hermaphrodites, sodomites, kings, queens, and cross-dressers comprise the fascinating mosaic of historical and imaginative figures unearthed in Queer Iberia. The essays in this volume describe and analyze the sexual diversity that proliferated during the period between the tenth and the sixteenth centuries when political hegemony in the region passed from Muslim to Christian hands.
To show how sexual otherness is most evident at points of cultural conflict, the contributors use a variety of methodologies and perspectives and consider source materials that originated in Castilian, Latin, Arabic, Catalan, and Galician-Portuguese. Covering topics from the martydom of Pelagius to the exploits of the transgendered Catalina de Erauso, this volume is the first to provide a comprehensive historical examination of the relations among race, gender, sexuality, nation-building, colonialism, and imperial expansion in medieval and early modern Iberia. Some essays consider archival evidence of sexual otherness or evaluate the use of “deviance” as a marker for cultural and racial difference, while others explore both male and female homoeroticism as literary-aesthetic discourse or attempt to open up canonical texts to alternative readings.
Positing a queerness intrinsic to Iberia’s historical process and cultural identity, Queer Iberia will challenge the field of Iberian studies while appealing to scholars of medieval, cultural, Hispanic, gender, and gay and lesbian studies.

Contributors. Josiah Blackmore, Linde M. Brocato, Catherine Brown, Israel Burshatin, Daniel Eisenberg, E. Michael Gerli, Roberto J. González-Casanovas, Gregory S. Hutcheson, Mark D. Jordan, Sara Lipton, Benjamin Liu, Mary Elizabeth Perry, Michael Solomon, Louise O. Vasvári, Barbara Weissberger

Review:

Part of an excellent queer studies line from Duke University Press, Queer Iberia sheds light on the neglected topic of sexually diverse behaviors, bodies, and ideas in medieval and early-modern Iberia. The papers were sparked by a poorly attended session at the 1994 International Congress on Medieval Studies that nevertheless gave rise over the next few years to a lively debate among scholars. Israel Burshatin's "Written on the Body" recounts the rise and fall of Eleno de Cespedes, a 16th-century hermaphrodite called before the Toledo Inquisition for the crime of marrying a(nother) woman and thus mocking the sacrament. In "The Semiotics of Phallic Aggression...," Louise Vasvari explores the surprisingly ancient insult of a raised finger, while Sara Lipton probes the polemics of the Albigensian Crusade for tellingly gendered terms in "Tanquam effeminatum." The anthology's 15 playful and penetrating essays--and its unusually fine introduction--should interest Western or Islamic medievalists, or anyone following the fractious debates in the brave new world of gender studies. --Regina Marler

From the Publisher:

“An outstanding collection. The pieces are sharp, bold, well argued, and witty; the whole project is—above all—crucial to the much-needed expansion of the fields of Hispanic, postcolonial, and lesbian/gay/bisexual/transgender studies.”—Carolyn Dinshaw, author of Chaucer’s Sexual Poetics and Getting Medieval

“In this provocative volume, an impressive collection of scholars, undaunted by a tradition of more solemn readings, train the powerful double lens of cultural and sexual difference on the medieval and early modern Iberian world, which turns out to be much more akin to our own than we might have suspected.”—Mary Gaylord, Harvard University
