Gender and Sexuality Studies
Queer Studies   Suggest a Link
This subcategory includes selected resources on gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgendered, intersexed, and other antinormative sexual identities, practices, performances, discourses, representations, and communities. In general, as an emerging interdisciplinary field, Queer Studies seeks to critique identity politics and destabilize notions of normative or essentialized sexuality and gender.
