IMPORT – EXPORT – TRANSPORT. Queer Theory, Queer Critique and Activism in Motion (2012)

The first volume of the book series "challenge GENDER" was edited by Sushila_Mesquita, Maria Katharina_Wiedlack and Katrin_Lasthofer and was published with Zaglossus e. U., Vienna, in November 2012.

Twenty years after the emergence of "queer" as a political concept, the contributions to this anthology discuss the radical potential of queer theory and activism within different spatial, cultural, and socio-political contexts. Both the term "queer" as well as initial concepts of queer critique are not only closely connected to the English language but also to the Anglo-American socio-political contex

Nevertheless, queer has traveled a lot since its emergence in the 1990s. Therefore, this collection explores how and for what purposes the term "queer" is and has been appropriated within different settings and locations, such as academia, activism, and popular culture. The volume opens up a space for trans-regional, intersectional, trans-disciplinary, and genre-transgressing exchanges about queer theory, queer critique, and queer activism.

The anthology is a collection of interdisciplinary articles, essays, and artwork by: Bini Adamczak and Mike Laufenberg; Sanja Milutinović Bojanić; Petra Sußner; Erzsébet Barát; Ivana Pražić; Robert Kulpa, Joanna Mizielińska, and Agata Stasińska; Cornelia Möser; Vendula (Esteban) Wiesner; Tea Hvala; Sanja Kajinić; Hongwei Bao; Nicole Alecu de Flers; Leopold Lippert; Kateřina Kolářová; Jack Halberstam; Hanna Hacker; Johanna Schaffer (with/out Vlatka Frketić); Marty Huber; Persson Perry Baumgartinger; Anthony Clair Wagner.
