We are now convinced that queer theory involves and
implicates everything under the sun and moon. And
beyond. So, we're here to help queer the universe. We
want to promote people's work. For peace
and justice. For fame and fortune. For power. For fun. Enjoy!
This site began as a
research tool for students enrolled in a very controversial honors
course at Villanova
University in the Spring of 2000. The course itself made
the headlines of the Philadelphia Inquirer, and letters of
protest -- as well as encouragement -- flooded the
university. News of the course even made it to the
Vatican. The course title was "Constructing and
Deconstructing Homosexuality," and I had the privilege of
being one of the team teachers.
This website, in association with Erratic
Impact's Philosophy Research Base (erraticimpact.com) is designed
and maintained by Danne
Polk, (with much appreciated help from several friends, former
students and colleagues). Queertheory.com is dedicated to
queering the world wide web and the wide wide world as well.
We at queertheory.com are dedicated to providing
the world with the best online resources integrated with the best
textual resources in the fields of LGBTQ studies, gender studies,
and queer theory. Thus, it is our goal to make the study of
gender identity, sexual orientation and construction as easy and
enjoyable as possible by combining the best online resources with
the most extensive text resources available.
We also love books! Thus, it is our goal
to use the internet to promote new (as well as established)
authors in queer theory and related fields. We want to help
students and teachers find your work.
And, we cherish communication. Let
us know how we might improve our service. Let
us know what authors you want represented on our pages. Let
us know if you need assistance in finding resources both
online and offline. We're here to help!
We appreciate your interest.
