Editorial Reviews

Review

Mobile Cultures is a feast of a collection. This compelling anthology renders the mediated queer realities of Asia within a more dynamic global frame. Studies of the Internet, cinema, and other technologies unmoor queer Asia from its static and sedentary locations. A necessary addition to the burgeoning field of transnational queer cultural studies!”—Martin F. Manalansan IV, coeditor of Queer Globalizations: Citizenship and the Afterlife of Colonialism

"[A]n exciting, satisfying and inspiring anthology that makes a significant contribution to transcultural queer studies." -- Vicki Crowley ―
Media International Australia

"[A]n important addition to the growing field of queer media studies, and by repositioning the field away from its Euro-American coordinates, the book creates a necessary international space for critical comparative perspectives to flourish." -- John Nguyet Erni ―
Popular Communication

"[A]n important work. . . . [T]his volume has unearthed an exciting new arena for queer studies in the intersection of new media and New Asia. Its invaluable wealth of materials, extensive coverage and theoretical sophistication can surely inspire and benefit politics, and postcolonial Asian gender-cum-techno-politics." -- Yiman Wang ―
Quarterly Review of Film and Video

"[I]f you don't know what MOTSS BBS are ("members of the same sex bulletin board systems") and want to find out, this book would be the place to start." -- Bradley Winterton ―
Taipei Times

"[T]he editors . . . have gathered fascinating essays. . . . [T]here is much here to interest readers at all levels. Recommended." -- W.A. Vincent ―
Choice

"As spelt out lucidly in the introduction and acted on earnestly in most of the essays,
Mobile Cultures as a whole has a coherent polemical take on the phenomenal rise of l/g/q formations in Asia (and other parts of the world). . . . And through concrete analysis of specific cases, the collection critically examines the question of whether the impact of globalization is homogenizing . . . or in effect 'glocalising.'" -- Wei-Cheng Raymond Chu ― Cultural Studies Review

"This is a rich and compelling book. . . . [T]he volume makes a major contribution to Asian studies, new media studies, and particularly queer Asian studies." -- Morgan Pitelka ―
Journal of Men's Studies --This text refers to the paperback edition.
