From Queer Studies on Asia to Asian Queer Studies

Journal Article


Abstract


  • My history of engagement with Asian Queer Studies is almost contemporaneous

    with the history of the journal Sexualities whose contribution to the field of sexuality studies we are currently celebrating. This short piece looks at the emergence of

    the field of Asian Queer Studies across the past 20 years and reflects my own

    research interests and biases to some extent (hence mostly addressing East Asia).

    I hope it will at least give a sense of how much the field has been transformed in this

    comparatively short time frame and point to some of the major developments that

    have brought about this transformation.
