Coding Gender in Romance Cultures

Series:

Edited By A. Francisco Zurián Hernández, Tanja Schwan, Uta Felten and Giulia Colaizzi

The book reunites transdisciplinary studies investigating the questions of construction and deconstruction of gender in filmic, literary, and television Romance cultures by referring to a corpus that stretches from plays of travesty in 18th century opera to non-normative masculinities in recent television series.
One of this book’s main objectives consists in inviting its readers to follow the traces of a transmedial and transnational historiography of media that offers figures of nomadic thinking in order to escape the binary concepts of normative biopolitics and offer instead alternative cartographies of gender and desire.
