Can queer theory be written by theorists of any sexual identity? Does the act of reading queer theory form queer readers who do not necessarily claim lesbian, gay, or queer identity? In Relating to Queer Theory the author explores the intimate link between sexual identity and theoretical stance in the energizing work of leading contemporary queer theorists. Drawing on a wide range of poststructuralist theory, this study theorizes previously unarticulated ethical relations between queer theory and readers of different sexual identities. Arguing that (queer) reading takes place in a transformative space that is open to readers of any sexual identity, this book interweaves theory and practice of queer reading by staging a series of encounters between queer theory and the different but related field of French feminism. Texts by Irigaray, Kristeva, Wittig, and Cixous are placed alongside those of their queer theoretical commentators in order to re-view current relations between feminism and queer theory. This study reflects critically on intersecting and divergent positions in feminist theory and queer theory, using each theoretical area to reread the other on issues of sexuality, sexual difference, and gender in relation to reading and writing.

About the Author:

The Author: Sarah Cooper is College Lecturer in French and a Fellow of Trinity Hall at the University of Cambridge.

Review:

«The encounters Cooper stages between selected texts by the feminists she takes as her focus and the realm of queer theory produce a series of interpretations that cannot fail to leave her reader dazzled and bewitched, and only too willing to do what Cooper exhorts us to do in her conclusion: that is, make new and previously unauthorized connections between various, variant theoretical disciplines and discourses. She has written a wonderful book, that will certainly have a significant impact on current critical debate.» (Alex Hughes, The Modern Language Review)
