Ashgate, Jan 1, 2008 - Social Science - 384 pages
What might it mean to queer the Human? By extension, how is the Human employed within queer theory? Featuring essays by international pioneering scholars in queer theory, critical theory, cultural studies and science studies, this volume reconsiders the way we think about queer theory, the category of the Human and the act of queering itself.
