About this book

This book advances a broad constellation of critical concepts situated within the field of queer studies and education. Collectively, the concepts take up a cross-section of scholarship that speaks to various political, epistemological, theoretical, methodological, and pedagogical concerns. Given the ongoing global centrality of sociocultural and political developments related to the topic of LGBTQ in the twenty-first century, the concepts in this volume and the issues raised by each contributor will have wide international appeal among researchers, scholars, educators, students, and activists working at the intersection of queer studies and education.

About the authors

Nelson M. Rodriguez teaches sexuality and queer studies in the Women’s and Gender Studies Department at The College of New Jersey, USA. He is co-editor of the series Queer Studies and Education and his current research areas span queer studies and education, critical masculinity studies, and Foucault studies.

Wayne J. Martino is Professor of Equity and Social Justice Education in the Faculty of Education and also an affiliate faculty member of the Department of Women’s Studies and Feminist Research at The University of Western Ontario, Canada.

Jennifer C. Ingrey is Adjunct and part-time Assistant Professor in the Faculty of Education at the University of Western Ontario, Canada. She also teaches in the Writing Program at King’s University College, Canada. Her research interests include the issues of gendered subjectivity in youth as it is experienced and formed in school spaces, namely the school washroom and other subjugated spaces; the practice of gendered identity as partial; and, the broader implications of equity and social justice on leadership studies in education through the employment of transgender studies and queer theory as frameworks.

Edward Brockenbrough is Associate Professor of Teaching and Curriculum in the Warner School of Education at the University of Rochester, USA. His research focuses on negotiations of identity, pedagogy, and power in urban educational spaces, particularly through the lenses of Black masculinity studies and queer of color critique. His work has appeared in several journals and edited anthologies. He is also the Director of the Urban Teaching and Leadership Program, a Warner School initiative that prepares urban teachers with a commitment to social justice.
