I am not exactly sure if anyone will be able to illuminate my queries but i thought i would give it a shot. I am a student at Oberlin College in Ohio and I am doing my honors project on the male hustler and it's construction through the visual arts of the 20th century. Through this examination, I want to highlight the works of Paul Cadmus. The thesis hopes to center on the way in which these images of male hustlers become dislocated from traditional conventions about prostitution and perversion and begin to open dialogue as to its' position within a queer discourse of desire and romanticization. The topic has been incredibly daunting thus far and I am always looking for more resources. If you have any suggestions I would appreciate them.
