The [Oxford] Encyclopedia of Queer Studies and Communication

The [Oxford] Encyclopedia of Queer Studies and Communication provides in-depth coverage of the relationship between communication and the societal decisions, popular culture/media representations, public opinion, and interpersonal participation of/within LGBTQI communities. It features articles from leading experts worldwide and affords a resource for understanding how gender/sexuality integrates & transcends the many traditional boundaries in the field of Communication. Queer Studies provide a critical supplement to the studies of communication by challenging the intersections & assemblages of racism, sexism, heteronormativity, etc. The encyclopedia is available as a thematic print collection. All of the articles also appear online as part of the Oxford Research Encyclopedia of Communication. On the site, the articles will be listed under the taxonomical category “Gender (Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual and Transgender Studies)” or you can search for the keywords “queer studies and communication”.
