Queer Imaginings
Talburt, Susan
Journal of LGBT Youth, v5 n3 p99-103 Jul 2008
The author discusses Diederik Janssen's "Re-Queering Queer Youth Development" and how the rendering of the disciplining of childhood and the normalization of queerness places the reiteration of oppositional developmental regulatory practices in question. Talburt concurs with Janssen's suggestion for more inquiry into and theorizing about spaces, times, and places, particularly if directed consciously to challenging sedimented adult/expert discourses, concluding that attention to how queerness produces nonlinear changes within and beyond boundaries may help us to push adult pedagogies away from (un)queer theories of identity, development, and regulation, to permit learning through and with a queerness whose imaginings and actions neither develop nor need to develop according to dominant logics.
