Introduces key terms, debates, and histories for feminist studies in gender and sexuality Keywords for Gender and Sexuality Studies introduces readers to a set of terms that will aid them in understanding the central methodological and political stakes currently energising feminist and queer studies.
The volume deepens the analyses of this field by highlighting justice-oriented intersectional movements and foregrounding Black, Indigenous, and women of colour feminisms; transnational feminisms; queer of colour critique; trans, disability, and fat studies; feminist science studies; and critiques of the state, law, and prisons that emerge from queer and women of colour justice movements. Many of the keywords featured in this publication call attention to the fundamental assumptions of humanisms political and intellectual debates from the racialised contours of property and ownership to eugenicist discourses of improvement and development. Interventions to these frameworks arise out of queer, feminist and anti-racist engagements with matter and ecology as well as efforts to imagine forms of relationality beyond settler colonial and imperialist epistemologies.
Reflecting the interdisciplinary breadth of the field, this collection of seventy essays by scholars across the social sciences and the humanities weaves together methodologies from science and technology studies, affect theory, and queer historiographies, as well as Black Studies, Latinx Studies, Asian American, and Indigenous Studies. Taken together, these essays move alongside the distinct histories and myriad solidarities of the fields to construct the much awaited Keywords for Gender and Sexuality Studies.
"An exhilarating read that sacrifices neither accessibility, depth, nor acuity in its assemblage of keywords. This book is a scholarly and curatorial feat that will be referenced (and enjoyed) widely."
