Queer Data: Using Gender, Sex and Sexuality Data for Action
This important book is the first to look at queer data (defined as data relating to sex, gender, trans identity/history and sexual orientation), explaining in an engaging and accessible style why it’s important to understand, collect and analyse such data, and the benefits and challenges involved in doing so and how data may better be used for action.
Shakespeare and Queer Theory
Shakespeare and Queer Theory is an indispensable guide on the ongoing critical debates about queer method both within and beyond Shakespeare and early modern studies. Clearly elucidating the central ideas of the theory, the field’s historical emergence from feminist and gay and lesbian studies within the academy, and political activism related to the AIDS crisis beyond it, it also illuminates current debates about historicism and embodiment.
‘Queer’ Asia: Decolonising and Reimagining Sexuality and Gender
By considering how queerness is imagined within plural Asian experiences and contexts, the contributors show that a re-envisioning of 'queer' through Asian perspectives has the potential to challenge existing discourses and debates in the wider field of contemporary gender, sexuality, and queer studies.
Queer and Trans African Mobilities: Migration, Asylum and Diaspora
This book draws on diverse case studies from the length and breadth of Africa, offering the first in-depth investigation of LGBT migration on and from the continent. The collection provides new insights into the drivers and impacts of displacement linked to sexual orientation or gender identity and challenges notions about why LGBT Africans move, where they are going and what they experience along the way.
Russian Homophobia from Stalin to Sochi
Examining nine ‘case histories’ that reveal the origins and evolution of homophobic attitudes in modern Russia, Dan Healey asserts that the nation’s contemporary homophobia can be traced back to the particular experience of revolution, political terror and war its people endured after 1917. This book provides a compelling background to the culture wars over the status of LGBT citizens in Russia today, whilst serving as a key text for all students of modern Russia.
