Inhalt
One of the largely untold stories of Orientalism is the degree to which the Middle East has been associated with »deviant« male homosexuality by scores of Western travellers, historians, writers, and artists for well over four hundred years. To illuminate why and how the Islamicate world became the locus for such fantasies and desires, Boone deploys a supple mode of analysis that reveals how the cultural exchanges between Middle East and West have always been reciprocal and often mutual, amatory as well as bellicose. Whether examining European accounts of Istanbul and Egypt as hotbeds of forbidden desire, juxtaposing Ottoman homoerotic genres and their European imitators, or unlocking the homoerotic encoding in Persian miniatures and Orientalist paintings, this study models an ethics of crosscultural reading.
