Queer Studies: An Interdisciplinary Reader is a collection of essays that over the past decade have helped to establish sexuality as one of the most vital and important areas of study in both the humanities and social sciences. Accessible as well as broadly interdisciplinary, the volume functions as a primary text for introductory as well as advanced courses in gender and sexuality studies, as a general introduction to the field, and as a scholarly resource.
Queer Studies covers the full range of issues, problems, and controversies in this still emerging field, including sexual politics, cultural constructions of sexuality, transnationalism, race and class, community, sexual citizenship, and the nation-state. An introductory essay written by the editors provides a comprehensive map to this new field, as well as a context for pivotal scholarship that promotes dialogue across the humanities and the social sciences and the interdisciplinary fields of queer studies and women's studies.
