Overview

Pirates captivate the Western cultural imagination at the beginning of the 21st century. Queer Buccaneers addresses this phenomenon through an analysis of the Disney film series Pirates of the Caribbean. Reading the films from a variety of post-structuralist perspectives, this study demonstrates the contradictory discourses and power relations that characterize the series. It argues that 'piracy' constitutes a sliding signifier that facilitates the (de)construction of discursive boundaries of gender, sexuality, race, ethnicity, class, and nationality.
