Keywords: For Gender and Sexuality Studies
Keywords for Gender and Sexuality Studies introduces readers to a set of terms that will aid them in understanding the central methodological and political stakes currently energizing feminist and queer studies. The volume deepens the analyses of this field by highlighting justice-oriented intersectional movements and foregrounding Black, Indigenous, and women of color feminisms; transnational feminisms; queer of color critique; trans, disability, and fat studies; feminist science studies; and critiques of the state, law, and prisons that emerge from queer and women of color justice movements.

Reflecting the interdisciplinary breadth of the field, this collection of eighty essays by scholars across the social sciences and the humanities weaves together methodologies from science and technology studies, affect theory, and queer historiographies, as well as Black Studies, Latinx Studies, Asian American, and Indigenous Studies. Taken together, these essays move alongside the distinct histories and myriad solidarities of the fields to construct the much awaited Keywords for Gender and Sexuality Studies.

Mishuana Goeman is a Professor of Gender Studies, Chair of Indigenous Studies at the University at Buffalo, and affiliated faculty of Critical Race Studies in the Law School at UCLA. Her work focuses on feminist interventions into an analysis of colonial spatial restructuring of Native lands and bodies in the twentieth century.
