The Global Trajectories of Queerness (eds. Ashley Tellis and Sruti Bala) interrogates the term “queer” by mapping what space the theorizing of same-sex sexualities and politics in the non-West inhabits.
From theoretical discussions to specific ethnographies of same-sex culture, this collection hopes to forge a way of tracking the histories of race, class, caste, gender, and sexual orientation that form what is called the moment of globalization. The volume asks how the societies of the Global South borrow or graft an internationalist language of LGBT/queer rights and identity politics, whether it is imposed on them or whether there is a productive negotiation of that language.
