Reviews

This collection is a sample of the intersection of the unstable nature of language, the fluidity of human experience, and conditioning effects of sociocultural contexts that contribute to a richer understanding of human sexuality. The book as a whole and each article specifically amount to an interrogation of socionormative heterosexual and patriarchal relations. (Nestor Medina, Theology & Sexuality, Vol. 21 (2), 2016)


This volume offers inspiring and insightful essays from emerging scholars who explore the intersection of ethnicity, migration, sexual desire, practice, and religion. You will find most valuable contributions to the fields of queer studies and migration studies that expand the vision in both fields. - Andrea Bieler, Professor, Practical Theology, Kirchliche Hochschule Wuppertal/Bethel, Germany
