Annual Colloquium - 2005
Representations of Sex(uality): Pornography, Obscenity, Deviance

Richard Meyer
Richard Meyer Associate Professor
Modern and Contemporary Art
University of Southern California

An art historian whose research emphasizes cultural studies, gay and lesbian studies, and the ongoing cultural debate over sexuality and gender, censorship and the public sphere, Richard Meyer is associate professor of modern and contemporary art at the University of Southern California. He is the recipient of the 2003 Charles Eldredge Prize for Outlaw Representation: Censorship and Homosexuality in Twentieth Century American Art and editor of Representing the Passions: Histories, Bodies, Visions.

In "Gay Power Circa 1970: Visual Strategies for Sexual Revolution," Meyer will consider the visual politics of the emerging US gay and lesbian movements during the civil rights era by focusing specifically on the visual strategies of lesbian artists and on "effeminism," an early 1970s movement of gay male liberationists who took up feminist ideas.
