The last ten years have seen the growth of rich research
in the politics of sexuality. Queer Politics, Queer Theories,
edited by Craig Rimmerman, aims at developing this research both
within and across disciplines. The series will focus on politics
in the broadest sense: not only state- and government-oriented studies,
but also community politics and the internal politics of new social
movements. Such work may originate in political science, sociology,
economics, American studies, philosophy, law, history, or anthropology.
The series will be defined not by particular academic disciplines
but by the questions raised in it. The keys are a concern for the
play of power and meaning in discussions of sexuality, and/or a
reading of the role of sexuality and sexual identities in conceptions
of social and political studies or in our common life.
