9781560233176: LGBT Studies and Queer Theory: New Conflicts, Collaborations, and Contested Terrain (Journal of Homosexuality)

Find out how the tension between LGBT studies and queer theory exists in the classroom, politics, communities, and relationships

LGBT Studies and Queer Theory: New Conflicts, Collaborations, and Contested Terrain examines the similarities and differences between LGBT studies and queer theory and the uneasy relationship between the two in the academic world. This unique book meets the challenge that queer theory presents to the study and politics of gay and lesbian studies with a collection of essays from leading academics who represent a variety of disciplines. These original pieces place queer theory in social and historical contexts, exploring the implications for social psychology, religious studies, communications, sociology, philosophy, film studies, and women's studies. The book's contributors address queer theory's connections to a wide range of issues, including the development of capitalism, the evolution of the gay and lesbian movement, and the study of bisexuality and gender.

Many scholars working in gay and lesbian studies still question the intellectual and political value of queer theory. As a result, queer theory has often been concentrated in the humanities, while gay and lesbian studies are concentrated in the social sciences and history. But this has begun to change in the past 10-15 years, as documented by the 12 essays presented in LGBT Studies and Queer Theory: New Conflicts, Collaborations, and Contested Terrain.

LGBT Studies and Queer Theory: New Conflicts, Collaborations, and Contested Terrain includes:

  • historical notes on LGBT studies and queer theory
  • some continuing tensions between LGBT studies and queer theory
  • doubts about whether queer theory can lead to social change
  • an analysis of the current state of proto-fields of LGBT studies and queer studies in religion
  • concerns that queer theory’s "erasure of identity" feeds into late capitalism
  • an analysis of variability in social psychologists’ studies of anti-homosexual prejudice
  • an exploration of the commodification of queer identities in independent cinema
  • how and why the category of bisexuality has been marginalized
  • a historical review and assessment of recent bisexual theory
  • a case study of Provincetown, Massachusetts
  • an investigation of the interarticulation of race/ethnicity and gender
  • a case study of the struggle to introduce LGBT studies in the curriculum at West Chester University
  • and much more
LGBT Studies and Queer Theory: New Conflicts, Collaborations, and Contested Terrain is an essential read for researchers, academics, and practitioners involved in exploring multifaceted aspects of LGBT Studies and Queer Theory and their points of convergence and divergence.

About the Author:

Karen Lovaas (Ph.D. in American Studies, University of Hawaii) is Assistant Professor of Speech and Communication Studies at San Francisco State University. Recent publications underscore her interest in sexualities, gender, communication, and pedagogy. The contested terrain of LGBT studies and queer theory, with John Elia and Gust Yep, is in press; it is a follow-up volume to Queer theory and communication: From disciplining queers to queering the discipline(s) (Harrington Park Press, 2003). She authored encyclopedia entries on "gender roles" and "sexism" for The international encyclopedia of [homo] sexualities, education, and cultures (2005), and glossary entries on "cross-dressing," "free love," "liberation," and "sexual assault" for Sexuality: The essential glossary (2004). "A critical appraisal of assimilationist and radical ideologies underlying same-sex marriage in LGBT communities in the United States" (2003), with Yep and Elia, and "Sexual practices, identification, and the paradoxes of identity in the era of AIDS: The case of 'riding bareback'" (2002), Yep and Alex Pagonis, were published in Journal of Homosexuality. With former undergraduate students Lina Baroudi and S. Collins, Lovaas wrote "Transcending heteronormativity in the classroom: Using queer and critical pedagogies to alleviate trans-anxieties" for the Journal of Lesbian Studies (2002); it was simultaneously published in Addressing homophobia and heterosexism on college campuses (Haworth Press, 2003). "Communication in 'Asian American' families with queer members: A relational dialectics perspective," with Yep and Philip Ho, appears in Queer families, queer politics: Challenging culture and the state (Columbia University Press, 2001). Her ongoing projects utilize critical, queer, and feminist approaches to communication research and pedagogy.

Gust A. Yep (Ph.D., M.A.. & B.A., University of Southern California) is Professor of Speech & Communication Studies and Human Sexuality Studies at San Francisco State University. His teaching and research interests include critical intercultural communication, queer theory, communication and gender, media and popular culture, health communication, field research methods, and communication and sexualities. Yep co-authored Privacy and Disclosure of HIV in Interpersonal Relationships (Erlbaum, 2003), which was nominated for the 2004 International Communication Association Book of the Year Award. He was also the lead editor of Queer Theory and Communication: From Disciplining Queers to Queering the Discipline(s) (Harrington Park Press, 2003). Yep s work has appeared in numerous interdis-ciplinary journals and anthologies, such as AIDS Education and Prevention, Feminist Media Studies, His-panic Journal of Behavioral Sciences, International and Intercultural Communication Annual, Interna-tional Quarterly of Community Health Education, Journal of American College Health, Journal of Gay, Lesbian, and Bisexual Identity, Journal of Homosexuality, Journal of Lesbian Studies, and Journal of Social Behavior and Personality. He is recipient of several teaching and community service awards and he was the 1999 San Francisco State University nominee for the Carnegie Foundation U.S. Professors of the Year Award.

Review:

Grounded in multiple disciplines--communications, ethics, religion, cinema studies, and history--but individual entries also include sophisticated reviews of work in cultural studies, social science, politics, psychology, and even psychoanalysis. Attention is also paid to the problems that arise in teaching this content, finding a home for it in the academy, and managing a career for those who work on these topics. -- Jeane W. Anastas, PhD; Professor, School of Social Work, New York University; Editor, Journal of Gay & Lesbian Social Services

Looks at capitalism, homophobia, religion, sexism and the spaces for visibility. It suggests critique, intersectionality and original research, and in all PROVIDES A VALUABLE, MAJOR CONTEMPORARY POSITIONING of the state of the field. MANY WILL READ IT AS A LANDMARK. -- Ken Plummer, PhD, (Emeritus Professor, University of Essex, UK)

MOST USEFUL FOR READERS WHO DO NOT KNOW MUCH ABOUT THESE DISCIPLINES. The more specific articles focus on how the tensions between lesbian and gay studies and queer theory translate into various arenas of life. The reader can choose all or specific areas of interest to explore how they are enlightened by the views of these disciplines and the critiques of queer theory. -- Ski Hunter, MSW, Ph.D. Professor, School of Social Work, University of Texas at Arlington
