In a Queer Place - Sexuality and Belonging in British and European Contexts
Starting from diverse theoretical perspectives, the eleven essays in this volume further scholarly debate in the study of gender and sexuality by exploring the relation of non-hetero sexualities to the geographies, poetics and legalities of belonging. The volume represents an important extension of the scope of lesbian and gay studies, as it shines fresh light on the very different locations of homosexualities within British and European contexts. Each essay draws on multiple sources, including historical and legal documents, the texts of literature and popular culture, ethnographic writings, and personal experience. In their attention to cultural, historical and textual specifics, the contributors deploy significant new research to elaborate fresh understandings of key concerns in the study of the social meanings of gender and sexuality.
