Springer, Nov 14, 2017 - Education - 334 pages
This book explores intersections of theory and practice to engage queer theory and education as it happens both in and beyond the university. Furthering work on queer pedagogy, this volume brings together educators and activists who explore how we see, write, read, experience, and, especially, teach through the fluid space of queerness. The editors and contributors are interested in how queer-identified and -influenced people create ideas, works, classrooms, and other spaces that vivify relational and (eco)systems thinking, thus challenging accepted hierarchies, binaries, and hegemonies that have long dominated pedagogy and praxis.

James E. Wermers is Digital Humanities Course Manager for the College of Letters and Sciences at Arizona State University, USA, and doctoral candidate at the University of Arizona, USA.

Joshua O. Lunn recently completed a fifteen-year sentence in an Arizona state prison. Noting the relationship between his crimes and patriarchal ideologies that encourage domination, oppression, and violence, he has explored ecofeminist and queer theory to examine delimiting ways of thinking and to effect positive change inside and outside of prison.
