Synopsis

An eloquent and convincingly articulated anthology. The relavance of its contribution cannot be overstated. Suzanne Chavez-Silverman, Pomona College Suggests the expansive and explosive significance of queer theory both inside and outside of the academy. Bruce Burgett, University of Wisconsin Madison In their sophisticated attention not only to sexuality but also to bodies, genders, identities, and the social spaces that structure how desire plays itself out, this host of fresh voices from the queer frontier provides an encouraging preview of the shape of queer studies in the decade ahead. Susan Stryker, Stanford University This wide-ranging anthology takes us unexpected places and makes provocative connections. Queer Frontiers is a stimulating and lively contribution to the ongoing cultural debates. Neil Miller, author of Out in the World and In Search of Gay America What feminism was for the 1970s and 1980s the galvanizing political and intellectual force reorganizing mainstream culture s understanding of gender and sexuality queer theory is for the 1990s. from the Introduction by Joseph A. Boone In the first collection of its kind, twenty-three scholars, artists, and critics forecast the impact of queer theory on the future of sexuality. Arguing that queer theory is poised to transform society s perception of gender itself, this thoroughly interdisciplinary anthology locates itself at the forefront of various debates both inside and outside the academy. From the history of gay and lesbian studies to the emergence of video bars, from an interview with playwright Cherrie Moraga to a photo record of 1950s gay Los Angeles, these original essays tackle the past, present, and future of queer sexuality from all directions. Queer Frontiers brings together the most vital and energetic voices around; whether promising young scholar or veteran of gay activism, each contributor is helping to move the debate into uncharted territory."
