A groundbreaking new collection, Feminist and Queer Legal Theory: Intimate Encounters, Uncomfortable Conversations brings together major voices in feminist and queer theory to create a truly interdisciplinary dialogue that will define the terms of the debates between and within feminist and queer theoretical frameworks for the next decade.
These debates primarily revolve around the multiple interrelated issues—such as gender, identity, intimacy, privacy, and sex harassment—that all extend from the emphasis given to gender on the one hand and sex and sexuality on the other. These two theories have much in common but also much that distinguishes them from one another, and that causes tension.
Together and in relation to each other, the authors in this volume engage in a rigorous and sometimes contentious exploration of the legal, political, social and cultural implications of their distinct theoretical approaches to gender and sexuality.
