Taking on issues of race, sex, gender, and 'the ethics of identity', this work offers a fresh take on queer theory - one rooted in phenomenology rather than poststructuralism - that seeks to put postnormative thinking at its center. It offers a glimpse of what 'thinking queer' can look like in our 'posthumanist age'.
David Ross Fryer is a Fellow at the Institute for the Study of Race and Social Thought at Temple University and a Scholar in Residence at the University of Pennsylvania.
