Queer Ideas: The David R. Kessler Lectures in Lesbian and Gay Studies

£13.99

Product Information

"Queer ideas have reshaped the way the world thinks. Brought together here for the first time, the annual David R. Kessler Lectures, sponsored by the Center for Lesbian and Gay Studies, demonstrate queer thinking at its most illuminating and convention shattering. Spanning 1992 to 2001, these lectures map the growth of queer studies and demonstrate its revolutionary potential, taking us unerringly to the edge and heart of queer thought.

Here some of the most outstanding queer thinkers of the day apply queer ideas to issues personal and political: Judith Butler rethinks human rights in the aftermath of 9/11, John D'Emilio researches gay civil rights activist Bayard Rustin, Esther Newton wrestles with butch identity, Barbara Smith recovers black lesbian and gay experience, Samuel R. Delany documents the banishing of sex from Times Square, Cherríe Moraga explores the intersections that make her a Xicanadyke, Edmund White looks at gay literary culture, Eve Kosofsky Sedgwick examines therapy ... and more."
