Jarrod Hayes, Margaret R. Higonnet, William J. Spurlin
Palgrave Macmillan, Sep 15, 2010 - Literary Criticism - 234 pages
These innovative essays take a comparative approach to queer studies while simultaneously queering the field of comparative literature, strengthening the interdisciplinarity of both. By focusing not only on comparative praxis, but also on interrogating our assumptions and categories of analysis, Comparatively Queer powerfully transforms the paradigms of comparison.
