Anthropological Explorations in Queer Theory offers a wide ranging
fusion of queer theory with anthropological theory, shifting away
from the discussion of gender categories and identities that have
often constituted a central concern of queer theory and instead
exploring the queer elements of contexts in which they are not
normally apparent. Engaging with a number of apparently
'non-sexual' topics, including embodiment and fieldwork, regimes of
value, gifts and commodities, diversity discourses, biological
essentialisms, intersectionality, the philosophy of Bergson and
Deleuze, and the representation of heterosexuality in popular
culture, this book moves to discuss central concerns of
contemporary anthropology, drawing on both the latest
anthropological research as well as classic theories. In broadening
the field of queer anthropology and opening queer theory to a
number of new themes, both empirical and theoretical,
Anthropological Explorations in Queer Theory will appeal not only
to anthropologists and queer theorists, but also to geographers and
sociologists concerned with questions of ontology, materiality and
gender and sexuality.
