Reviews

'This superb collection shows the value of thinking concretely about queer methods. It demonstrates how queer studies can contribute to debates about research conventions as well as offer unconventional research. The book is characterised by a real commitment to queer as an intersectional study, showing how sex, gender and sexuality intersect with class, race, ethnicity, national identity, and age. Readers will get a real sense of what you can write in by not writing out the messiness, difficulty, and even strangeness of doing research.' Sara Ahmed, Goldsmiths, University of London UK 'Very little systematic thought has been devoted to exploring how queer ontologies and epistemologies translate into queer methods and methodologies that can be used to produce queer empirical research. This important volume fills that lacuna by providing a wide ranging, comprehensive overview of contemporary debates and applications of queer methods and methodologies and will be essential reading for researchers from across the social sciences interested in the praxis of queer theory.' Rob Kitchin, National University of Ireland, Maynooth, Ireland 'This essay collection is a good companion to the feminist research methods texts that are currently available... Queer Methods and Methodologies would be valuable to nearly any social science researcher (feminist/queer or not), particularly graduate students and their advisers, and would be a great addition to any graduate-level research methods course.' Feminist Collections 'Queer Methods and Methodologies develops the unused space between queer scholarship and empirical research techniques... a collection of this depth and breadth is not only a natural progression, it is long overdue... This interdisciplinary volume of 30 essays engages with four key concerns of queer theoretical work - identity, discourse, normativity and relationality - and highlights the many discursive intersections with queer theory. Read together they may make a productive marriage of theory and practice...' Culture, Health and Sexuality '... this book is the first of its kind to bring together case studies that adopt a queer epistemology to social science research. As was the case for the development of feminist methodology, I expect that it will serve as a jumping-off point for subsequent efforts to clarify what a queer epistemology will offer social science research.' Contemporary Sociology 'This is a welcome interdisciplinary reflection on and call for deeper engagement with methodology as integral to queer knowledge and answerable to queer theoretical paradigms.' Somatechnics '... Queer Methods and Methodologies is one of the most significant contributions to geographies of sexualities in recent years thanks to its inno-vative, applied uses of queer theory in the practice, design, and analysis of research... Those interested in learning more about ways in which to apply queer theory and to advance the methods generally to their work will find the book helpful and inspiring... the possibility of queering and recognizing the stories of dif-ference has been amplified with these methods. For this, the editors and authors have performed a useful, even cru-cial service.' Annals of the Association of American Geographers
