Introduction to "Queering the Writing Center"
Writing Center Journal, v30 n1 p92-94 2010
Queer theory challenges what is "normal" and questions the mechanics behind individuals and their institutions' efforts to maintain "normal." Queer theory can help a person get over himself/herself, and, as a result, the words, bodies, spaces, and beliefs that he/she holds dear will be called upon to respond. Harry Denny's article instructs everyone on how to listen to the response. What any reader of "Queering the Writing Center" should come away with, at the very least, is this understanding of the potential for queer theory to "advance awareness of the presence and multiplicity of binaries" in one's daily work.
