Private Affairs : Critical Ventures in the Culture of Social Relations, Paperback / softback Book

Private Affairs : Critical Ventures in the Culture of Social Relations Paperback / softback

Part of the Sexual Cultures series

Description

In Private Affairs, Phillip Brian Harper explores the social and cultural significance of the private, proposing that, far from a universal right, privacy is limited by one's racial-and sexual-minority status.

Ranging across cinema, literature, sculpture, and lived encounters-from Rodin's The Kiss to Jenny Livingston's Paris is Burning-Private Affairs demonstrates how the very concept of privacy creates personal and sociopolitical hierarchies in contemporary America.
