Description

The fundamental issue with `queer' research is it cannot exist in any definable form, as the purpose of queer is to disrupt and disturb. This book generates a process of `undoing' as central to queer research enquiries.

Aiming to engage in a process which breaks free from traditional academic norms, the text explores three life stories: an intersex-identifying Catholic, a former `ex-gay' minister and a Christian who engages in bondage and fetishist practices.

Employing an `undoing' methodology, which liberates the researcher and allows intuitive, reflective and creative methods, the book makes a significant contribution to the fields of gender, sexuality and queer studies in religion, both empirically and theoretically.
