Summary

Drawing on border thinking, postcolonial and transnational feminisms and queer theory, Gender, Sexuality and Identities of the Borderlands brings an intersectional feminist and queer lens to understandings of borderlands, liminality and lives lived at the margins of socio-cultural and sexual normativities.

Bringing together new and contemporary interdisciplinary research from across diverse global contexts this collection explores the lived experiences of what Gloria Anzaldúa might have called ‘threshold people’, people who live among and in-between different worlds. While it is often challenging, difficult, and even dangerous, inhabiting marginal spaces, living at the borders of socio-cultural, religious, sexual, ethnic or gendered norms can create possibilities for developing unique ways of seeing and understanding the worlds within which we live.

This collection casts a spotlight on the margins, those ‘queer spaces’ in literary, cinematic and cultural borderlands; postcolonial and transnational feminist perspectives on movement and migration; and critical analyses of liminal lives within and between socio-cultural borders. Each chapter within this unique book brings a critical insight into diverse global human experiences in the 21st Century.
