Two reviews of Karen Tongson’s Relocations
At last month’s AAA (anthropology) panel on “Transfrancisco” (queer/trans San Francisco), someone rightly pointed out that a lot of recent queer ethnography/theory has been moving away from urban centres and onto rural/small-town queer life. But who’s been thinking about queer suburban life in the meanwhile?
Meredith Raimondo and Lorena Muñoz each offer a review of Karen Tongson’s Relocations: Queer Suburban Imaginaries. They were part of an author-meets-critics panel at last year’s New York AAG, organized by Jasbir Puar. Relocations was published in 2011 by New York University Press.
