This book draws on historiography, cultural theory and empirical research to explore contemporary concerns around issues of queer representation, sexual citizenship and activism. Using a variety of case studies, texts and ethnographic research, it explores these conceptual issues within a global and local context, and demonstrates the disruptive mechanisms of reading/seeing queerly. It focuses on the importance of locating the understanding of queer lives within geopolitics, academic institutions and cultural policies. Stressing on academic activism that is grounded in scholarship, the book attempts to generate critical debate and reflection in the field of Queer Studies.
