The Child Now
Journal Issue Pages: 160 Volume 22, Number 4 Published: October 2016 An issue of GLQ

Futurity, innocence, and childish subversion—as concepts, as frameworks—have yet to catch up to where the child has moved in the present century. The contributors to this issue explore topics that are both vital and challenging for current queer studies, including paradoxical exportations of the US “innocent” child abroad, the queer child under same-sex marriage law, child revolutionaries’ actions in Egypt, and the colonial afterlife of the boarding school for indigenous children. Following the twists and turns of children now, contributors confront how race, gender, and sexuality are made to live and grow in children’s bodies.
