individual introductory notes that situate each work within its historical, disciplinary and theoretical contexts

essays grouped by key subject areas including Genealogies, Sex, Temporalities, Kinship, Affect, Bodies, and Borders

writings by major figures including Eve Kosofsky Sedgwick, Judith Butler, David M. Halperin, Jos Esteban Mu oz, Elizabeth Grosz, David Eng, Judith Halberstam and Sara Ahmed.
