The Routledge Queer Studies Reader provides a comprehensive resource for students and scholars working in this vibrant and interdisciplinary field.

The book traces the emergence and development of Queer Studies as a field of scholarship, presenting key critical essays alongside more recent criticism that explores new directions. The collection is edited by leading scholars in the field and presents:

  • individual introductory notes that situate each work within its historical, disciplinary and theoretical contexts
  • essays grouped by key subject areas including Genealogies, Sex, Temporalities, Kinship, Affect, Bodies, and Borders
  • writings by major figures including Eve Kosofsky Sedgwick, Judith Butler, David M. Halperin, José Esteban Muñoz, Elizabeth Grosz, David Eng, Judith Halberstam and Sara Ahmed.

The Routledge Queer Studies Reader is a field-defining volume and presents an illuminating guide for established scholars and also those new to Queer Studies.

Review:

'It is hard to imagine a volume that could represent the field more knowingly!' Robyn Wiegman, Duke University, USA

'This fresh, innovative, and significant volume demonstrates convincingly the queer moment is by no means over.' Laura Doan, University of Manchester, UK

'Get prepared to enter a scene of provocation, a sexy sort of maelstrom, where trans meets butch meets brown meets "quare" meets intersex, racial, post-colonial, and disabled matters in juxtaposition, in telling combinations. Even subtleties and biting formulations appear side by side, in a queer cubism, leading both students and scholars to thoughts that will startle and seduce them.' Kathryn Bond Stockton, University of Utah, USA

"The Queer Studies Reader will serve as an official and unofficial textbook for those interested in overthrowing the patriarchal gender binary and interrupting heteronormativity."Rachel Wexelbaum, Feminist Collections: A Quarterly of Women’s Studies Resources, Vol 34 No 3-4 2013
