Transforming Emotional Regime: Pai Hsien- yung’s Crystal Boys


“Transforming Emotional Regime: Pai Hsien- yung’s Crystal Boys” turns towards literature as a means of exploring emotional hierarchies that both inform and organize homophobia and anti-queer violence within the structure of the family. Linshan Jiang takes us through Crystal Boys––a canonical piece of Taiwanese queer lit- erature––a love story between two male lovers up against the social order of fielial piety in Taiwan during the 1960s.
