Description - Mourning Sex by Peggy Phelan
This study employs a range of cultural representations to examine how cultures perform their mourning. It looks at texts and events ranging from: the paintings of Caravaggio and Holbein, Massi and Friedman's film "Silver Lake Life" to the Anita Hill and Clarence Thomas hearing. The author meditates upon the performance and critics of the trauma of loss. Experimental and theoretically informed, this text advances performance theory in dialogue with psychoanalysis, queer theory, and cultural studies.
