    2. Okay, I only read the introduction to this book, written by editors Hong and Ferguson. But wow, was it great. Hong and Ferguson address the need to construct new paradigms for understanding race, gender, sexuality, privilege, and power in the contemporary world. They reject the mid-twentieth century model of activism based on racial and ethnic nationalism which, they argue, reproduces identity category fragmentation and hierarchization. Instead, they look to women of color feminism and queer of [...]

    3. An impressive collection of contemporary essays on race, gender and sexuality. The authors revive women of color feminist texts from the 1980s as theoretical frameworks, rather than simply drawing from post-structuralist and more eurocentric versions of queer theory, although they draw on Deleuze, Derrida, Foucault, et al too. It provides a clear geneaology of contemporary "queer of color critique" & I would definitely use this book to teach from. It provides a good sampling of where the fie [...]
