Queer Studies is designed as an advanced undergraduate textbook in queer studies for this rapidly growing field. It is also appropriate as an early required or recommended graduate textbook in queer, gender, and sexuality studies. The author uses the overarching concept of queering, drawn from queer theory, as a way of looking at the lives of queer people across a range of concepts drawn from different academic and scholarly disciplines. The intention is to survey these disciplines, beginning with the foundational study of language, and then to examine a variety of human experiences, including education, the rituals of marriage, and advocacy for justice.
With this book, a leading expert in queer studies has effectively synthesized and explained relevant information about this area. This book is timely, original, and distinctly understandable. It could easily be adopted in advanced college courses focused on queer studies, especially given the volume’s accessibility. I appreciate the conversational tone, the coherent structure, and the relevant and practical examples. Tony Adams, chair, Department of Communications, Bradley University
