An interdisciplinary project that uses literary analysis, along with personal testimony and the applications of gender theory, as a means for identifying and exploring LGBTQ stories, the book considers queer yearnings for stories other than those conventionally available, that engage and resist norms in literature as well as culture and politics.
MARGARET BREEN is an Associate Professor of English and Womens Studies at the University of Connecticut, where she teaches courses in LGBT Literature and Gender and Sexuality Studies.
