Textbooks The B Word Mobi Read Apps Download Often disguised in public discourse by terms like “gay,” “homoerotic,” “homosocial,” or “queer,” bisexuality is strangely absent from queer studies and virtually untreated in film and media criticism. Published by Publisher ♜Indiana University Press♜ Maria San Filippo aims to explore the central role bisexuality plays in contemporary screen culture, establishing its importance in representation, marketing, and spectatorship. Published by Publisher ♜Indiana University Press♜ By examining a variety of media genres including art cinema, sexploitation cinema and vampire films, “bromances,” and series television, San Filippo discovers “missed moments” where bisexual readings of these texts reveal a more malleable notion of subjectivity and eroticism. Published by Publisher ♜Indiana University Press♜ San Filippo’s work moves beyond the subject of heteronormativity and responds to “compulsory monosexuality,” where it’s not necessarily a couple’s gender that is at issue, but rather that an individual chooses one or the other. Published by Publisher ♜Indiana University Press♜ The B Word transcends dominant relational formation (gay, straight, or otherwise) and brings a discursive voice to the field of queer and film studies.
