In doing so, it interrogates some of the key assumptions concerning the relationship between aesthetics and the politics of identity, that have influenced and informed television drama criticism during this period.

Queer girls, temporality and screen media : not 'just a phase' / Whitney Monaghan

In 1987, Canada’s Degrassi Junior High featured one of TV’s first queer teen storylines. Contained to a single episode, it was promptly forgotten within both the series and popular culture more generally. Cut to 2016 – queer girls are now major characters in films and television series around the globe. No longer represented as subsidiary characters within forgettable storylines, queer girls are a regular feature of contemporary screen media. Analysing the terms of this newfound visibility, Whitney Monaghan provides a critical perspective on this, arguing that a temporal logic underpins many representations of queer girlhood. Examining an archive of screen texts that includes teen television series and teenpics, art-house, queer and independent cinemas as well as new forms of digital video, she expands current discourse on both queer representation and girls’ studies by looking at sexuality through themes of temporality. This book, the first full-length study of its kind, draws on concepts of boredom, nostalgia and transience to offer a new perspective on queer representation in contemporary screen media. -- publisher's web site ISBN: 9781137555977 Donation: Whitney Monaghan More info

Is the overwhelming boy-meets-girl content of popular teen movies, music, books, and TV just a cover for an undercurrent of same-sex desire? From the 1950s to the present, popular culture has involved teenage boys falling for, longing over, dreaming about, singing to, and fighting over, teenage girls. But Queering Teen Culture analyzes more than 200 movies and TV shows to uncover who Frankie Avalon's character was really in love with in those beach movies and why Leif Garrett became a teen idol in the 1970s. -- book jacket ISBN: 9781560233480 Contents: Preface -- Devil on wheels: the rise of teen culture -- Father knows best: learning girl-craziness on TV -- Sal Mineo and friends: the juvenile delinquent films -- Teenage zombies from outer space: monster movies -- Heartbreak Hotel: the teen idols -- How to stuff a wild bikini: the beach movies -- Easy rider: the love generation -- American graffiti: 1950's nostalgia and teenage androgyny -- Real men and psycho-slashers -- The brat pack: teen nerds and operators -- Teencoms and teensoaps.

Queering the Screen or Screening the Queer : normalisation and sexuality on Australian television / by Fronscesca Jackson-Webb

As a result, popular press commentators and audiences have increasingly employed discourses of normalisation in attempting to understand the ways in which these representations fit in a predominantly heterosexual mediasphere. This thesis provides a critical analysis of the discourses of normalisation in gay, lesbian and queer representation on Australian television and surrounding commentary. These discourses will be analysed through the textual analysis of a selection of programs broadcast on Australian television. Titles include: Number 96, Queer Eye for the Straight Guy, The Block, Will and Grace, Prisoner, Queer as Folk and The L Word. Queer theory, gay and lesbian identity theory and television studies provide the frameworks for these analyses. This thesis posits that discourses of pro-normalisation and anti-normalisation operate in these programs, often within the same text. It also argues that programs aspiring to represent queer sexual diversity often employ discourses of pro-normalisation, and, on the other hand, programs that aspire to present gay and lesbian assimilation at times contain transgressive queer elements." -- ABSTRACT Notes: This is an honours thesis submitted by Fronscesca Jackson-Webb for the partial credit in Bachelor of Communication (Professional Communication) (Honours) Contents: -- abstract -- statement of authorship-- acknowledgments -- introduction -- definition of terms -- chapter 1: from identity politics to queer theory -- 1.1: identity theory, culture and politics -- 1.2:the rise of queer theory -- 1.3: queer versus normal: discourses of queer and normalisation -- 1.4: theories of normalisation -- 1.5: the mass media -- chapter 2: gay representations of pro-normalisation -- 2.1: Number 96 -- 2.2: Will and Grace -- 2.3: The Block -- chapter 3: queer representations resisting normalisation -- 3.1: Prisoner -- 3.2: showtime's Queer as Folk and The L Word -- chapter 4: representations of Camp Identity -- 4.1: camp identity -- 4.2 Will and Grace -- 4.2 Queer Eye for the Straight Guy -- 4.4: Queer as Folk -- conclusion -- list of references -- videography -- More info
