Where to Stay in Madrid: Neighborhood & Accommodation Guide

In the past two decades the city of Madrid has been marked by pride, feminism, and globalization-but also by the vestiges of the machismo nurtured during the long years of the Franco dictatorship. Jill Robbins traverses the various literary spaces of the city associated with queer culture, in particular the gay barrio of Chueca, revealing how it is a product of interrelations-a site crisscrossed by a multiplicity of subjects who constitute it as a queer space through the negotiation of their sexual, racial, gender, and class identities.

Robbins recognizes Chueca as a political space as well, a refuge from homophobia.

She also shows how the spatial and literary practices of Chueca relate to economic issues. Ver todas las apps de lectura gratuitas de Kindle. Lbiro a leer Crossing through Chueca en tu Kindle en menos de un minuto.

Detalles del producto Tapa blanda: University of Minnesota Press 7 de junio de Idioma: This is a good book if you are interested solely in literary analysis. The actual political-economic realities of the production of “lesbian” though what lesbian literature means to the author is never really clarified NO has a lesbian character?


In addition, Robbins makes enormous claims about Spanish gay and lesbian identity with no evidence whatsoever. Many of her claims about the neighborhood and gay male life are problematic at best and completely chuecs at worst. Overall, this is a decent book if you are only looking for literary analysis.

The book in question has the virtue of never talking about gay or lesbian identities, but of emphasizing specific subjectivities that, needless to say, are all different, individualized, free, and autonomous. The book does the best reading anyone has ever done of what Spaniards themselves have had to say about gay and lesbian subjects in the context of the s “movida” Spain’s somewhat carnivalesque transition to democracy, for the uninitiatedhistoricizes the Chueca neighborhood of Madrid, the gay neighborhood of that city which is like the equivalent of San Francisco’s Castro district, and especially problematizes why and how lesbians remain invisible in the Spanish cultural landscape, unlike gay subjects who have become public intellectuals while being openly gay.

This is a key issue in the book. There is a clear hierarchy in which, homophobia notwithstanding, gay men can be public intellectuals in Spain, yet lesbian women cannot.

The book in question also analyzes the various cultural forms by which lesbians seek each other out, such as “chateo,” the chat room, and alternative cultural manifestations that we still seldom see in cultural studies’ analyses. Crossing Through Chueca shows an impressive range of research combining archival work used for historical contextualization, interviews with authors and LGBT activists. It also articulates a solid theoretical base that has the virtue of including Spanish, American, and Latin American, perspectives, something rarely seen in Anglo-centered scholarship.


The author articulates Chueca as a political space, a construct of Spain’s entry into democracy and globalization, but also shows how Chueca’s own emergence is clearly related to transglobal economic issues. It is certainly an important book for those interested in transnational queer studies within the broader Western, yet non-Anglocentric, discussion on gender and sexuality.
