"(In)visible lesbian practices: (Im)possible relationships or strategics of resistance"?
Summary:
This dissertation examines homoerotic women’s narrations of their (in)visible desires,
relationships, and strategic practices within their family homes and workplaces in
contemporary Greece. Drawing on the life narratives of homoerotic women who cohabit with their female partners, I explored the manifold ways in which these women
re-negotiate their everyday lives within their situated contexts. My findings indicated
that my research informants were neither making claims for a queer/lesbian identity nor for
a life structured on the basis of their sexuality. Rather, their claim was for recognition
of their right to construct their own life trajectories and for social recognition regardless of their partners’ gender.
