Abstract

Everyday Erotics: Ethnographies of Older Lesbians and Bisexual Women in Hong Kong, Singapore and Taiwan

Denise Tang, Associate Professor, Department of Cultural Studies, Associate Dean, Arts Department Lingnan University, HK

This talk presents the life stories of older Chinese lesbians and bisexual women (born in the 1940s and 50s) in Hong Kong, Singapore, and Taiwan through an interdisciplinary ethnography combining fieldwork and cultural analysis of inter-Asia mediations of femininities and masculinities. Tang examines the figure of the Chinese lesbian as both real and imagined in our historical narratives and contemporary social worlds.
