Global Queer Asias (Series)

GQA logo

The Global Queer Asias series provides an interdisciplinary platform for scholars who wish to pursue innovative conceptual, archival, and ethnographic research that transcends traditional area studies paradigms, which have long dominated academic discussions of Asia. The series acquires groundbreaking books from both established academics and rising scholars who are developing new rubrics, frameworks, and agendas. Works in this series should engage with inclusively defined “queer” issues, that is, the social and cultural dynamics of gender and sexual diversity. Though situated in geographic sites typically associated with the label “Asia,” this series pushes for comparative and global perspectives and calls for rigorous attention to themes, approaches, and social-cultural patterns that either emerge from cross-border movements or transcend regional and national boundaries. Studies in which diaspora and migration experiences come to the fore are especially welcome, as well as research that brings critical race/ethnic theory, disability studies, and other intersectional approaches to bear on inter-regional studies outside the modern West.
