(This book explores the relationship of modernism and dome...)

(Drawing on a rich archive of videos, films, television sh...)
Drawing on a rich archive of videos, films, television shows, novels, monuments, paintings, and sculptures created in the wake of the epidemic, the authors reveal a resistance among critics to valuing—even recognizing—the inscription of gay memory in art, literature, popular culture, and the built environment.
(Christopher Reed draws attention to the queerness of Japa...)
Christopher Reed draws attention to the queerness of Japanist communities of writers, collectors, curators, and artists in the tumultuous century between the 1860s and the 1960s.
(Navigating notions of silence, misunderstanding, pleasure...)
Navigating notions of silence, misunderstanding, pleasure, and even affects of phobia in artworks and texts, the essays in this volume propose new and surprising ways of understanding the difficulty—even failure—of the epistemology of the closet.
Reed graduated from Amherst College with a bachelor's degree (summa cum laude) in 1984. He then obtained his master's degree and a doctorate from Yale University in 1985 and 1991, respectively.
Reed started his career as an assistant professor of art history at the University of Southern Maine in 1991. Five years later, he went to Lake Forest College, where he first worked as an assistant professor, then as an associate professor and from 2005 to 2007, as a professor of art.
After leaving Lake Forest College, Reed started working at Pennsylvania State University. From 2007 to 2011, he served as an associate professor of English and Visual Culture, then as a professor till 2016.
In 2016, Reed was appointed Liberal Arts Professor of English and Visual Culture and since 2018, he has been working as Distinguished Professor of English and Visual Culture at the university. He also teaches courses for the Minor in Sexuality and Gender Studies.
Reed's interdisciplinary scholarship explores a wide range of topics in visual culture. He has published on topics as diverse as mass-produced paintings for interior decoration, street furniture designed to mark a gay neighbourhood in Chicago, the relationship of BritishVogue to emerging forms of queer culture in the 1920s, the television show Will & Grace, and the idea of lesbian humour.
