Hallo wonderful minds! Yesterday i encountered a student who struggled with his teachers at another school because they failed to understand his work from a queer perspective. To be honest, it was painful to watch.

In response, I started this resource pad because I wanted to help him build up a language/theoretical framework to articulate, support and defend his position. His work relates to queer surveillance, violence, policing of the body, disciplinary regimes.

Please feel free to add your references to this pad. https://pad.xpub.nl/p/queer-reader

Thank you for your time.
