Abstract:This project explores the changing representation of Arab men and "Arabness" in contemporary gay male pornography, before and after 9/11, investigating how evolving ideologies, social movements and technologies influence these racial constructions. The paper takes an in depth look at several European and American films and studios, as well as the emerging "do it yourself' XTube culture, analyzing how the cultural specificity of each text or production site influences how they both appropriate Orientalist tropes, while simultaneously deconstructing their own racial constructions. Although many of these texts traffic in conservative and racist clichés, I argue that via parody and performativity these sexual moving image texts also allow for interesting, if ambivalent, moments of resistance.
