Summary "The volume explores ... convergences and departures among a variety of feminist and queer political projects. These explorations - foregrounded by legal issues such as marriage equality, sexual harassment, workers' rights, and privacy - re-draw and re-imagine the alliances and antagonisms constituting feminist and queer theory. The essays cross a spectrum of disciplinary matrixes, including jurisprudence, political philosophy, literary theory, critical race theory, women's studies, and gay and lesbian sutdies. The authors occupy a variety of political positions vis-à-vis questions of identity, rights, the state, cultural normalization. and economic liberalism" -- Cover.
