Zarah Leander: Den queera divan
2007 (Swedish)In: Tidskrift för Genusvetenskap, ISSN 1654-5443, no 1-2, 68-91 p.Article in journal (Refereed) Published
This article discusses the actress and singer Zarah Leander (1907-1981), one of the most celebrated female stars in German Nazi Cinema 1936-43. She is a contradictory figure, and her star persona has always been a negotiation of antagonistic formulations, thus pointing to modes of audience identification and specatorship issues, most strikingly articulated through her immense popularity in the post-war German and Swedish gay community.
