Queer Kinship : South African Perspectives on the Sexual Politics of Family-Making and Belonging, Paperback / softback Book

Queer Kinship : South African Perspectives on the Sexual Politics of Family-Making and Belonging Paperback / softback

Edited by Tracy Morison

Description

What makes kinship queer? This collection from leading and emerging thinkers in gender and sexualities interrogates the politics of belonging, shining a light on the outcasts, rebels, and pioneers.

Queer Kinship brings together an array of thought-provoking perspectives on what it means to love and be loved, to `do family' and to belong in the South African context.

The collection includes a number of different topic areas, disciplinary approaches, and theoretical lenses on familial relations, reproduction, and citizenship.

The text amplifies the voices of those who are bending, breaking, and remaking the rules of being and belonging.

Photo-essays and artworks offer moving glimpses into the new life worlds being created in and among the `normal' and the mundane. Taken as a whole, this text offers a critical and intersectional perspective that addresses some important gaps in the scholarship on kinship and families.

Queer Kinship makes an innovative contribution to international studies in kinship, gender, and sexualities.

It will be a valuable resource to scholars, students, and activists working in these areas.
