Meg John Barker, Jules ScheeleQueer Theory, Une Histoire Graphique
What does the ‘Q’ that now most often complements the traditional four-letter acronym LGBT refer to? “Is it a gender identity, a sexual orientation, a political movement or an academic theory? In recent years, the term “queer” has flourished on the placards of Pride marches and has become more and more common in theoretical works on gender and sexuality or in the words of feminist activists. This book aims to help readers understand this vast field of queer studies and movements. The book explores the politics of identity, gender roles, privilege, exclusion, performance, normativity, the links between sexuality, gender identity, race and class, and the influence of pop culture. Queer Theory, a graphic history looks at the key concepts, the most important thinkers – often little known to the French-speaking readership -, the emblematic debates and the historical events that have contributed to the emergence and construction of queer theory. Engaging and funny, this book, halfway between an essay and a comic book, is a unique portrait of the world of queer thought, from its birth to its most current developments.
