A Pioneering Collection
“Queer Youth Histories” is the first book offering a sustained reflection on youth, history and queer sexualities and genders. It bridges the gap between LGBT historical scholarship and contemporary queer youth cultures. Here is an international and transdisciplinary reflection on youth, history and queer sexualities and genders. Since the 1970s there has been an explosion in research focusing on LGBTQ history and on the lives of LGBTQ young people, but these two research areas have seldom been brought together explicitly.
It marks out pathways for thinking more about youth in LGBTQ history and more about history in contemporary understandings of LGBTQ youth by examining histories from the nineteenth century through to the recent past. contributors examine queer youth histories in continental Europe, Britain, the United States of America, New Zealand, Australia, Canada, Ireland, India, Malaysia and Hong Kong.
