Queer Theory without Antinormativity

Robyn Wiegman and Elizabeth A. Wilson (editors)


Duke University Press

Wiegman, professor of literature and women's studies, and her co-editor bring together contributors who address the seemingly simple question: can queer theory proceed without a primary allegiance to critiques of normative values such as heterosexuality, family values, marriage, and monogamy? These essays offer an affirmative answer either by rethinking normativity or eschewing it altogether in order to redirect the intellectual and political energies of the field.
