Queer Literature

Recommended Posts

I wanted to read some about queer theory (as I plan on running it next year) and I was wondering what a good starting point would be. A list of recommended titles would be wonderful.

Some other stuff that might be a good intro -

Warner - The Trouble With Normal

Stanley - Near Life, Queer Death

Mary Nardini Gang - Towards A Queerest Insurrection

 

The bottom two are short and should be relatively easy to find online; I've only read a hard copy of the Warner book, but it might be floating around

If you want to talk about trans* people or gender in general, Susan Stryker, Jay Prosser and Judith Butler are indispensable (I'd be wary of citing Halberstram as several of her arguments can be construed as transphobic). Eve Sedgewick is useful & as some more background reading, Gayle Rubin is helpful too
