Description

Queer Memory and Storytelling unpacks the ways in which the narrative practices of recounting past experiences play a formative role in formation of identities, cultures, and social change among gender and sexually diverse individuals. Grounded in theoretical research, this work delves into historical accounts, case studies, and draws from the rich tapestry of interviews conducted during extensive LGBTQ+ research studies.

It explores the power of memorial storytelling to shape the narratives surrounding gender and sexual diversity, offering profound insights into the role storytelling plays as a deeply subjective, personal, communal, and cultural form of expression.

The book introduces a queer perspective that reframes the study of narrative psychology, community history, philosophies of subjectivity and the socio-cultural heritage of LGBTQ+ minority communities.

It also focuses on the pivotal role played by memory and reflection found within online coming-up stories and contemporary modes of shared community memorialization.

By employing queer theory, ethnographic research, interviews and meticulous media/textual analysis, the book presents new frameworks for comprehending the myriad facets of identity, and investigating what it means to remember and narrate selfhood in the context of social life, actively ‘queering’ the concept of memory. Queer Memory and Storytelling will appeal to academics, researchers and students in psychology, sociology, gender and sexuality studies, and communication.
