WHYNOT #06

$15.00

WHYNOT #06  * 【第六期介绍】 本期的杂志收录了许多精彩的文章与内容。专栏方面收录了小邝、张国强、刘晓义与黄毅圣的作品。重点介绍黄毅圣的性别专栏:红灯国。这篇文章阐述了本地性工作者与政权的周旋,以及种种法律与社会因素对他们造成的困扰。本地的性工作是在什么样的情况下运作?面临什么问题?最重要的是,为何新加坡会将性工作合法化,却又处处压迫他们? 这一期的专题以“再现”(Re-presentation)为主题,专访了三位文化人:谢燊杰、程异与钟达成。“再现”这个概念说难不难,说易不易。简言之,它是作者“选择性地以某种媒介与方式,展现他对于现实世界的独特认知。”因而,我们希望通过这次采访解构这些文化人再现的文本,试图把读者带入他们创造的空间,搭建两者之间沟通的桥梁。 本期在诗与小说方面也收录了许多独特的作品,许多还出于新手之笔。诗人方面有爱妮、蔡欣洵、语凡、家宣,台湾诗人宋尚纬、贺婕、阿芒等人的作品。小说方面有潜宁的《靖夫》,书写了一对感人的同志爱情故事。同时,杂志也收录张国强的《我要活下去!》,叙述了色情小说家与他笔下人物的交叉命运。  WhyNot is a Singapore based Chinese Literary magazine, started by a group of NTU Chinese Studies graduates in 2012. For this issue, our...
