Description

I was the Humanities Book Review Editor for GLQ: A Journal of Lesbian and Gay Studies between 2007 and 2011. GLQ is a peer-reviewed, international journal published by Duke University Press.

Providing a much-needed forum for interdisciplinary discussion, GLQ: A Journal of Lesbian and Gay Studies publishes scholarship, criticism, and commentary in areas as diverse as law, science studies, religion, political science, and literary studies. Its aim is to offer queer perspectives on all issues touching on sex and sexuality.

In an effort to achieve the widest possible historical, geographic, and cultural scope, GLQ particularly seeks out new research into historical periods before the twentieth century, into non-Anglophone cultures, and into the experience of those who have been marginalized by race, ethnicity, age, social class, body morphology, or sexual practice. A notable feature is "The GLQ Archive," a special section featuring previously unpublished or unavailable primary materials that may serve as sources for future work in lesbian and gay studies.
