This chapter analyses the interrelation between the two discursive ‘regimes’ of nation and sexuality. Discourse is understood to organise social relationships into conceptual frameworks, ‘discursive formations’, that produce a ‘set of rules’ by which objects, subject positions, and strategies are formed. Discourse analysis is concerned with this social practice of discursive articulation and with exploring discursive formations as the relationship between ‘institutions, economic and social processes, behavioural patterns, systems of norms, techniques, types of classification, modes of characterisation’ (Foucault 1989: 45).
