This unique anthology presents the most important and influential essays in GLBT and Queer Studies during the past twenty years. Presented in a way that is historically contextualized, politically complex, and far-reaching across different disciplines, the readings demonstrate the ways in which queer theory has begun to transform some of the prevailing assumptions underlying GLBT studies. The 89 essays, poems, fiction, personal narratives and performance pieces present various, sometimes opposing, always intellectually challenging points-of-view across the disciplines of philosophy, literature, history, art, film, television, web and print media, political science, anthropology, economics, sociology and psychology. Includes introductory section essays, Questions for Reflection, bibliographies, film, web, and social activism resources. Readings are grouped around seven major themes: What is ?queer theory?? The sociopolitical origins of queer. Queer formulations and the politics of identity. (De)/(re)gendering sexualities. Cinema queerité and queer pop culture. Queer fictions of the past. Queer theories/social realities. For anyone interested in the Gay and Lesbian experience.
