  • Same-Sex Intimacy in Fiction about Southern Plantations

    Michael Bibler, Louisiana State University

    Published: 
    8 July 2009
    Overview: 

    Speaking June 25, 2009 at Outwrite Bookstore & Coffeehouse in Atlanta, Georgia, Michael Bibler discusses same-sex relationships in twentieth century literature about southern plantations—the subject of his book Cotton's Queer Relations: Same-Sex Intimacy and the Literature of the Southern Plantation, 1936–1968. He considers the ways in which same-sex character couples offer these authors vehicles to explore modes of equality in the intensely hierachial plantation structure.
