In this groundbreaking work, Sara Ahmed demonstrates how queer studies can put phenomenology to productive use. Focusing on the "orientation" aspect of "sexual orientation" and the "orient" in "orientalism," Ahmed examines what it means for bodies to be situated in space and time. Bodies take shape as they move through the world directing themselves toward or away from objects and others. Being "orientated" means feeling at home, knowing where one stands, or having certain objects within reach. Orientations affect what is proximate to the body or what can be reached. A queer phenomenology, Ahmed contends, reveals how social relations are arranged spatially, how queerness disrupts and reorders these relations by not following the accepted paths, and how a politics of disorientation puts other objects within reach, those that might, at first glance, seem awry. Ahmed proposes that a queer phenomenology might investigate not only how the concept of orientation is informed by phenomenology but also the orientation of phenomenology itself. Thus she reflects on the significance of the objects that appear--and those that do not--as signs of orientation in classic phenomenological texts such as Husserl's Ideas. In developing a queer model of orientations, she combines readings of phenomenological texts--by Husserl, Heidegger, Merleau-Ponty, and Fanon--with insights drawn from queer studies, feminist theory, critical race theory, Marxism, and psychoanalysis. Queer Phenomenology points queer theory in bold new directions.… (mere)

Queer Phenomenology is a discussion of how the world can be experienced differently in lieu of orientation. While Ahmed gives a crash-course in phenomenology (and its cousin existentialism) in the first body chapter, but I recommend you brush up on your philosophy and ontology. that is great about this book, is that it builds up to the thesis. While alluded to in the opening, Ahmed allows her argument to build up through discussion of phenomenology and world-construction, leading to an interesting conclusion. Furthermore, the book asks for a close read. This is no treatise that emulates its argument in the first paragraph - the method established in the beginning is key to understanding the argument. ( )
