(p.1) Introduction
(p.iii) Queer Chinese Cultures and Mobilities

John Wei

Hong Kong University Press

This chapter forays into the ongoing social, cultural, political, economic, and technological transformations concerning queer people in China and other Chinese societies. Through the assemblage of geographical, cultural, and social class migrations, it sheds light on the entangled formulations of queer kinship, cultural flows, and social mobilization that are productive by and of the increasingly ubiquitous and imperative mobilities. This chapter questions the emergent homocapitalist and homonormative cultures in today’s China, investigates the complex sexual identity politics and identity labels, and examines the values and pitfalls of combining digital and traditional anthropologies with cultural critique and social analysis in understanding transgressive desires.

Keywords:   Confucianism and familism, Global Financial Crisis, Homocapitalism, Homonormativity, Queer mobilities, Sexual identities, Queer theory, Queer ethnography, Digital anthropology
