Drawn from extensive, new and rich empirical research across the UK, Canada and USA, Queer Spiritual Spaces investigates the contemporary socio-cultural practices of belief, by those who have historically been, and continue to be, excluded or derided by mainstream religions and alternative spiritualities.

As the first monograph to be directly informed by 'queer' subjectivities whilst dealing with divergent spiritualities on an international scale, this book explores the recently emerging innovative spaces and integrative practices of queer spiritualities. Its breadth of coverage and keen critical engagement mean it will serve as a theoretically fertile, comprehensive entry point for any scholar wishing to explore the queer spiritual spaces of the twenty-first century.

Item Type: Book
Additional Information: 10 researchers worked on the funded project. Research assistants are credited in the chapter headings, but they did not write the actual chapter (they actually wrote a report, data from which was incorporated, but we wanted to acknowledge their contribution to the funded project in the book somehow to encourage their career as early researchers). 3 main authors wrote the book manuscript. All authors (Browne, Munt and Yip) drafted and revised all chapters - this was an exercise in collective writing; although there is a 'lead' author name on each chapter, this author had first draft responsibility only, but all chapters were redrafted/revised by the other 2 colleagues. Therefore, the 3 co-authors should be able to claim this as a whole manuscript submission. One chapter (out of 10 altogether) was written primarily by Kate O'Riordan, also in conjunction with the 3 main authors. Material from my case study from the QSS Projest and chapter 4 of the book on queer quakers was revised and published in "Queer Quakers: Negotiating Post-Christian Selfhoods within the Liberal Sphere" in Social Identities between the Sacred and the Secular Edited by Abby Day and Christopher R. Cotter Ashgate AHRC/ESRC Religion & Society series, edited by Prof. Linda Woodhead and Dr Rebecca Catto. 2013.
