Overview

Gauges the impact lesbians have made within higher education in the last twenty years or so in disciplines ranging from geography, linguistics, biology, information technology (IT) and the law to health studies, philosophy, cultural, theatre and film studies, and including lesbian studies itself. In chapters by lesbians from Australia, Canada, the UK and the US, this remarkable degree of lesbian presence across the academy is subjected to a rigorous critique by the contributors to this volume who analyze issues such as the notion of specifically lesbian knowledge in various academic disciplines, the impact of lesbian feminism and of queer on the emergence of lesbians within higher education and the problematic of incorporating lesbian studies within the academy. From the downright pessimistic to the seriously celebratory, contributors interrogate the effects lesbians as activists, teachers and researchers have had, and continue to have, on changing disciplines and the academy.
