New Directions from the Center for Lesbian and Gay Studies. General editors: José Muñoz and Ann Pellegrini.
Lesbian and gay scholarship suffers from a certain stasis that Sexual Cultures is determined to disrupt, a stasis that derives from an overarching concern with the local, the masculine, and the white subject. Taking lesbian, gay and sexuality studies as its points of departure—and not ends in themselves—books in this series will promote scholarship about the lived experiences of sexual minorities.
Mirroring the Center for Lesbian and Gay Studies, this means maintaining strong activist and community commitments, and forging links between academe and “actually existing” queer cultures. In the process, Sexual Cultures will expand the definition of what lesbian and gay studies includes, particularly in the areas of race, nationality, religion, and class.
The series will entertain manuscripts from a variety of academic disciplines on a wide range of academic and nonacademic subjects. Books in the series will cover such topics as the culture of drag kings, Latin American sexuality, passing, the encroachments of global capital on local homosexualities, and queers and Christians. All of the books in Sexual Cultures will have critical horizons large enough to take in the current transformations of knowledges, identities, and capital on a shifting world stage.
Pursuing scholarship that can speak across disciplinary boundaries, as well as the border between academic and activist, Sexual Cultures seeks above all to intervene in and enable a vibrant and public queer culture.
