Abstract

For decades, queer educational ethnographies have played an important role in interrogating both the experiences of queer and trans youth and the cisheteronormativity of schooling. In this chapter, the authors explore the critical conversations broached and expanded by this scholarship. The authors pay particular attention to what shifts have occurred for queer(ing) ethnographic praxis when scholars have taken it up across different learning contexts within and beyond schools. Focusing on methodological and empirical shifts, the chapter traces how queer educational ethnographies in multiple types of sites approach learning about queer and trans youth and the structures that shape their lives. Motivated by the authors’ curiosities and their participation in queer educational ethnography, the authors close by reflecting on future possibilities for this field of inquiry.

Abstract

In recent decades, there has been important growth in queer and trans studies in educational research, with independent subfields emerging in K-12 and higher education. Though scholars in each area have generated valuable knowledge, these subfields have developed in parallel rather than in conjunction, with each subfield having its distinct foundational literature, methodological and theoretical traditions, research questions, premier research journals and conferences, and so forth. Although this trend has helped build knowledge about educational experiences in K-12 and higher education separately, it has also resulted in disconnects, redundancies, and gaps in the larger field. The edited volume sought to intervene by bringing together a range of emerging and established scholars in K-12 and higher education research who focus on queer and trans studies. It features groups of scholars from across these two subfields collaboratively writing to address knowledge gaps and how to bridge them. This introduction describes the state of queer and trans studies in education and offers an overview of the chapters to come. This edited volume emerged from a two-year collaboration among K-12 and higher education queer studies scholars, and the chapters in this volume came from those conversations. The conversations, collaborations, and thinking that took shape during that extended, intensive collaboration gave rise to the pieces included in this volume.

Possibilities and Tensions in Queer and Trans Studies in Education
Volume Editors: , , and
Growing out of a series of discussions and gatherings over the course of more than two years, Bridging the Rainbow Gap is a collection of chapters and response essays that take up key tensions, gaps, and possibilities in queer and trans scholarship in education. Working across K-12, higher education, and other education disciplines, the authors in the volume take up themes of identity development, ethnography, young adult literature, queer joy, queer potentiality, ideology, emerging issues in trans studies, whiteness in queer studies, and futures in queer and trans studies. Collectively, the book serves as an invitation into generative conversations about what queer and trans studies are, what they can be, and what they might do in education.
