Abstract

About the book: Out of Place asks daring and timely questions about the silence at the heart of queer studies. Discussing 'race' alongside 'queer' often submerges raciality within queerness, leaving racialised groups silent and silenced -'out of place'. Out of Place creates a space where queerness/raciality are brought together in creative tension to disturb these silences: to hear the invisible, to see the inaudible.
