Description - Queer Theories by Donald E. Hall

This volume explores and aggressively expands the provocative field of sexual identity studies. It covers the history of the terms "gay" and "lesbian" as identity categories, the reclamation of the word "queer" as a term of radical self identification, and the challenges to sexual identity studies posed by transgender and bisexual theories. Donald E. Hall also offers concrete applications of the abstract theories that he explores with imaginative new readings of works such as "The Yellow Wallpaper", "Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde", "Orlando" and "The Color Purple".
