  1. The Cultural Politics of Queer Theory in Education Research.Christina Gowlett & Mary Lou Rasmussen (eds.) - 2016 - Routledge.
    _The Cultural Politics of Queer Theory in Education Research_ represents the editors’ intention to disrupt cycles of thinking about the place of queer theory in educational research. The book aims to encourage dialogue about the objects and subjects of queer research, the forms of politics incited by the use of queer theory in education, and the methodological approaches used by scholars when queering.
