There's also Latin America, so a possibility there is Manuel Puig's Kiss of=
 the Spider Woman (El beso de la mujer ara=F1a) & the film based on it by H=
ector Babenco.  Maybe a little late for your course, though.

Dear MSA list members,

I am thinking of putting together an undergraduate course on Queer Modernis=
ms for next year and would love some input for possible texts/authors to pu=
t on the syllabus.  This course will be taught in a Comparative Literature =
department, so besides the usual suspects (Forster, Radclyffe Hall, H.D., S=
ackville-West, Djuna Barnes ...) it should include some French, German, Ita=
lian, or Slavic etc. texts and authors as well.  I would also like to inclu=
de examples of visual culture (Claude Cahun?) and films (Nazimova's Salome)=
.  Any suggestions greatly appreciated!
