P574: Queer theory: A critical framework for knowledge production in education - WITHDRAWN

Nelson Rodriguez (The College of New Jersey, USA)

Since the late 1980s and early 1990s, queer theory has emerged from, has been impacted by, and has contributed to several intellectual locations within the academy, including the field of (teacher) education. In this talk I will (1) provide an overview of the theoretical and political contexts that have given rise to the production of queer theories in the academy; (2) examine some of queer theory’s central critical methodological strategies; and (3) discuss and explore the implications of 1 and 2 above for framing and designing research projects in education that desire to speak to questions of gender and sexual politics.
