Pirates captivate the western cultural imagination at the beginning of the
21 st 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.
