(p.126) Chapter Three Topographies of Queer Popular Culture
French Post-Modern Masculinities
Liverpool University Press

This chapter examines the social constructs of post-queer masculinity as it is portrayed in relatively more popular novels or autofictions and in films by directors such as Sébastien Lifshitz, Olivier Ducastel, and Jacques Martineau. By introducing fragmentary and networked positions that involve modern technology, HIV infection, sexual norms, and other related issues, all these works enact post-human French masculinity. By putting the fictions together with the films, the consequences of certain normalising versions of masculinity become evident. Both these novels and films take received notions of the identity of gay men and push them in new directions.

Keywords:   Sébastien Lifshitz, Olivier Ducastel, Jacques Martineau, films, novels, masculinity, gay men, HIV infection, sexual norms
