Male Sexuality Under Surveillance: The Office in American Literature
By: Graham Thompson (author)Hardback
1 - 2 weeks availability
"Male Sexuality under Surveillance" is a lively, intelligent, and expertly argued analysis of the construction of male sexuality in the business office. Graham Thompson interweaves three main threads: a historicized cultural analysis of the development of the modern business office from its beginnings in the early nineteenth century to the present day, a Foucauldian discussion of the office as the site of various disciplinary practices, and a queer-theoretical discussion of the textualization of the gay male body as a device for producing a taxonomy of male-male relations. The combination of these themes produces a study that is fresh, insightful, and provocative.
Graham Thompson teaches in the English Department at De Montfort University in Leicester, U.K., and is the author of The Business of America: The Literary and Critical Production of a Post-War Nation (forthcoming).
