This collection details the scholarly and personal factors that affected the emergence of lesbian and gay anthropology and speculates on the directions it will take as it continues to diversify. Seeking to legitimize the field‘s scholarship and address issues in terminology, the essays also define the lesbian and gay scope and locate factors that separate it from the wider concerns of the profession. Contributors track the emergence of gay and lesbian studies in social and cultural anthropology, linguistics, archaeology, and in various areas of anthropological activism. They also consider how feminist anthropology helped define the field and how transgendered experience, queer theory, and race and class studies are promoting new directions of inquiry.
