The emergence of queer ideas has unsettled other forms of exploring gender and sexuality, in particular, feminism. In response, feminists have been significant critics of queer ideas. This book, through the contribution of important US and UK writers, explores the debates between feminist and queer theorizing in order to seek out interconnections between the two and identify new directions in thinking about sexuality and gender that may emerge out of and at the interface.

How are questions of cultures and identities being reconfigured? What political communities and strategies are becoming possible and impossible in this context? What kinds of theoretical connections and alliances are being made? In addressing these and other questions the chapter authors explore themes such as: queer or feminist?; the distance between the global and local; bringing material and cultural analysis together; and the general legacy of feminism and queer theory. Now in paperback, the book also includes a new Preface by the editors that highlights the recent changes across feminist and queer studies.
