Queer Theory, Queer Critique and Activism in Motion

Twenty years after the emergence of 'queer' as a political concept, the contributions to this anthology discuss the radical potential of queer theory and activism within different spatial, cultural, and socio-political contexts. Both the term 'queer' as well as initial concepts of queer critique are not only closely connected to the English language but also to the Anglo-American socio-political context. Nevertheless, queer has traveled a lot since its emergence in the 1990s. Therefore, this collection explores how and for what purposes the term 'queer' is and has been appropriated within different settings and locations, such as academia, activism, and popular culture. The volume opens up a space for trans-regional, intersectional, trans-disciplinary, and genre-transgressing exchanges about queer theory, queer critique, and queer activism. This is the 1st volume of the series 'challenge GENDER: Contemporary challenges of_within Gender Theory' edited by the Gender Research Office at the University of Vienna.
