Queering Paradigms VI: Interventions, Ethics, and Glocalities (Oxford: Peter Lang) is now submitted and in production (expected publication end of September/ early October 2016).
Following the successful QP6 conference (CCCU, July 2015) the volume edited by QP founder Bee Scherer offers queer interventions, explores value-production in socio-corporeal normative frameworks, and shows pathways of global-local queer resistance; virtuosity; and failure in Philosophy, Pedagogy, Psychology, Art, Criminology, Health, Social Media, History, Religion and Politics.
The volume features a particular South Asia focus and a balanced mix of early career researchers and established scholars, which reflects Queering Paradigm’s ethos to foster a genial academic community of practice and to proffer intergenerational support and voice.
