About this book


This book explores queerness in the context of changing economic, intellectual, sexual, and school terrains. Greteman proposes the concept queer thriving to imagine how queers might develop in-contestation to becoming normalized. This work and the work of queer thriving challenge various norms that have evolved over the course of queer theory’s history. To read queer thriving into the world takes the reader into investigations of the child, the seminar classroom, queer cultures, the history of AIDS, and emerging discourses on barebacking and PrEP. Queer thriving guides queers into a 21st century that does justice to diverse queer existences, past and present.
