Abstract:“Looking Beyond Male Bonding: ‘The New Chivalry’ and the Boundaries of Same-Sex Corporeal Intimacy in Turn-of-the-Century Britain” investigates the representation, culture, and spaces of same-sex male intimacy. By attempting to define the contours and boundaries of the male body in representation, my project traces the visual culture of a spatial and corporeal intersubjectivity which, through elaborate and sophisticated codes of distance and proximity enlivened the “ideal divide” of the proverbial closet. The trick, therefore, for the Victorian bourgeois male was to ascertain the limits of representational strategies that at once supported and subverted dominant and normative codes of same-sex intimacy. The seemingly disparate archival remnants of Walter Crane's decorative theories on the figure, male same-sex double portraits (painted and photographic), Charles Robert Ashbee's arts and crafts social reform program for his School and Guild of the Handicraft which overlapped with concepts of his ideal beloved, and finally the interior spaces of Turkish baths in London emerge as significant parallel and imbricated moments in the interpellation of a sexualised bourgeois male subject. These examples of intimacy beyond traditional, normative parameters of male bonding and aggregation serve as eloquent displays that at once enliven male bourgeois fears and desires. Given that I believe we are the inheritors of Victoria's reign and that our contemporary sexual ethos forms the psychosomatic remnants of capitalism's early stages, these judiciously selected examples have been chosen in the hopes to illustrate, even if obliquely, our own moment in modernism's genealogy and demonstrate its impact on the classificatory systems of the archives.
