'Queer/ing China': Theorizing Chinese genders and sexualities through a transnational lens
Zhao, Jamie J; Bao, Hongwei
In this viewpoint essay, using ‘queer/ing China’ as a heuristic, we explore ‘queerness’ and ‘Chineseness’ through an intersectional approach that is attuned to the encounters, syntheses and dissonances of local, transnational and global queer and feminist studies, knowledge and movements. We thus propose ‘queer/ing China’ as an innovative, productive conceptual framework to critically examine contemporary gender and sexual cultures, subjectivities and politics within and beyond the normative imaginaries of China and Chineseness.
