1. Miller, Shannon. "Subjectivity, Reflectivity: Black Lesbian Interviewing Black Lesbians" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the 33rd Annual National Council for Black Studies, Renaissance Atlanta Hotel Downtown, Atlanta, GA, <Not Available>. 2019-08-19 <http://citation.allacademic.com/meta/p302485_index.html>
Publication Type: Panelist Abstract
Abstract: In this paper I describe my experiences as a Black lesbian interviewing other Black lesbians for my dissertation project. In the examination of social contextual influences on Black lesbian coming out experiences, family studies researchers primarily conclude that widespread homophobia in Black families isolate lesbians; and in turn, lead lesbians to deny or avoid disclosing their sexual identity. However, this conclusion does not capture my experience, and as a lesbian daughter and Black feminist family studies researcher, I seek to expand narrow depictions of Black family functioning. My dissertation project chronicled the coming out narratives of Black lesbians to mother(s) and family and used Black feminist theory to focus on the identity affirming potential of identity proclamation. In this paper I offer both my participants and my “personal” coming out story to reveal how the roles of researcher and participant intersected and transformed into storytelling between sisters. I describe how both Black feminist theory and my identities as Black lesbian feminist researcher influenced my subjectivity and reflectivity; and in turn, informed my research analysis and conclusions. Ours stories are offered to dispel the persistent myth of the objective family science researcher.

Abstract: My paper examines two Indian novels about lesbian desire: Abha Dawesar’s Babyji (2005), and Manju Kapur’s A Married Woman (2003). I am especially interested in the novels’ turn from sexual desire to political history, as the protagonists become involved in caste and religious politics, and their sexual relationships end. This turn is captured by the vacillation of literary form between Bildungsroman/ domestic novel and historical fiction. This formal instability, I show, stages the gendered tensions inherent in imagining a politics of the body qua sexual subjectivity and identity within a socialist and secular nationalist body politic.

3. Keller, Yvonne. "Lesbian Representation, Pornography, and the Search for a Usable Past: Lesbian Literature in the U.S., 1945 to the Present" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the National Women's Studies Association, TBA, St. Charles, IL, Pheasant Run, Jun 28, 2007 <Not Available>. 2019-08-19 <http://citation.allacademic.com/meta/p173348_index.html>
Publication Type: Conference Paper/Unpublished Manuscript
Abstract: This paper shows how lesbianism and pornography are entangled from 1945 to today, and how pro-lesbian fiction writers have encountered, reworked, and fought to untangle that dense matrix. Pornography, voyeurism and most broadly, vision, is central to one major strain of lesbian literature that engages with porn, or more broadly put, voyeurism or vision. To reclaim a usable lesbian past, and to honor the radicalness of a certain strain of lesbian fiction that aspires to, in Teresa de Lauretis’s words, “autonomous lesbian representation”—we have to, in a seemingly contradictory move, discuss pornography.

Abstract: This study resulted in the increased knowledge of the intersections of race, sexuality, gender, gender presentation, culture, religion, and class. I conducted interviews with black lesbians and implemented snowball sampling to increase the number of participants. Using the framework of intersectionality and queer black feminism, I found that the women in this small sample had not adopted the gender blender identities of earlier lesbian-feminism. These women adopted gender presentations similar to the traditional butch-femme identities (even though butch is never used within this small black community). What was most interesting was the adoption of hip-hop culture by these lesbians (hence the title). Further, when describing incidents of discrimination, they did not use the word discrimination to describe their negative experiences. Instead, they used the term hate which is part of black urban language or hip hop culture. Those who hated on them included members of their own groups – black heterosexual men, white lesbians, older black lesbians, and members of local black religious groups. Lastly, lesbian literature discusses personality types (aggressive assigned to butch; passive assigned to femme). These women did not adhere to these typical labels. Many participants suggested that as black women they were naturally aggressive regardless of sexual preference.

"Queering the Gaze: Lesbian Representation in the Queer New Wave and Contemporary Lesbian Cinema" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the National Women's Studies Association, Sheraton Denver Downtown Hotel, Denver, CO, Nov 11, 2010 <Not Available>. 2019-08-19 <http://citation.allacademic.com/meta/p429579_index.html>
Publication Type: Poster
Review Method: Peer Reviewed
Abstract: "The gaze" is a foundational aspect of feminist film theory and remains a significant area of analysis for feminist and queer film criticism that encourages an exploration of how spectatorship, identity, and cinematic structures, shape and inform representation of lesbians and queer female sexuality on screen. This poster examines how queer (lesbian) female sexuality and race are depicted in New Queer Cinema and Contemporary Lesbian Cinema through a destabilization and reappropriation of the (male) gaze and manipulation of traditional cinematic filming conventions.
