The fundamental issue with `queer' research is it cannot exist in any definable form, as the purpose of queer is to disrupt and disturb. This book generates a process of `undoing' as central to queer research enquiries.
Aiming to engage in a process which breaks free from traditional academic norms, the text explores three life stories: an intersex-identifying Catholic, a former `ex-gay' minister and a Christian who engages in bondage and fetishist practices.
Employing an `undoing' methodology, which liberates the researcher and allows intuitive, reflective and creative methods, the book makes a significant contribution to the fields of gender, sexuality and queer studies in religion, both empirically and theoretically.
Chris Greenough is Senior Lecturer in Theology and Religions at Edge Hill University. His work explores the intersections of sexuality, biography, living experiences and faith. He is a reviewer for Reviews in Religion and Theology (Wiley) and a member of SocRel (Sociology of Religion Study Group) and IARG (International Association for the Study of Religion and Gender), and he has presented at conferences at the University of Exeter, University of Winchester, Edge Hill University and at Talking Bodies at the University of Chester, engaging with academics both inside and outside of theology.
"Fascinating and absorbing ... extraordinary stories of ordinary people crafted into a bottom-up queer theology by a master story-teller. These voices need to be heard." -- Deryn Guest
