About The Book
Find out how the tension between LGBT studies and queer theory exists in the classroom, politics, communities, and relationships
LGBT Studies and Queer Theory: New Conflicts, Collaborations, and Contested Terrain examines the similarities and differences between LGBT studies and queer theory and the uneasy relationship between the two in the academic world. This unique book meets the challenge that queer theory presents to the study and politics of gay and lesbian studies with a collection of essays from leading academics who represent a variety of disciplines. These original pieces place queer theory in social and historical contexts, exploring the implications for social psychology, religious studies, communications, sociology, philosophy, film studies, and women’s studies. The book’s contributors address queer theory’s connections to a wide range of issues, including the development of capitalism, the evolution of the gay and lesbian movement, and the study of bisexuality and gender.
Many scholars working in gay and lesbian studies still question the intellectual and political value of queer theory. As a result, queer theory has often been concentrated in the humanities, while gay and lesbian studies are concentrated in the social sciences and history. But this has begun to change in the past 10-15 years, as documented by the 12 essays presented in LGBT Studies and Queer Theory: New Conflicts, Collaborations, and Contested Terrain.
LGBT Studies and Queer Theory: New Conflicts, Collaborations, and Contested Terrain includes:
historical notes on LGBT studies and queer theory
some continuing tensions between LGBT studies and queer theory
doubts about whether queer theory can lead to social change
an analysis of the current state of “proto-fields” of LGBT studies and queer studies in religion
concerns that queer theory’s “erasure of identity” feeds into late capitalism
an analysis of variability in social psychologists’ studies of anti-homosexual prejudice
an exploration of the commodification of queer identities in independent cinema
how and why the category of bisexuality has been marginalized
a historical review and assessment of recent bisexual theory
a case study of Provincetown, Massachusetts
an investigation of the interarticulation of race/ethnicity and gender
a case study of the struggle to introduce LGBT studies in the curriculum at West Chester University
and much more
LGBT Studies and Queer Theory: New Conflicts, Collaborations, and Contested Terrain is an essential read for researchers, academics, and practitioners involved in exploring multifaceted aspects of LGBT Studies and Queer Theory and their points of convergence and divergence.
