The work of Marcella Maria Althaus-Reid is both groundbreaking and notoriously difficult to read, as it blends theories from post-colonial studies, queer studies, gender and sexuality studies, and feminist and liberation theologies.
Offering a much needed introduction to the work of the theologian, Queer and Indecent shows the development of Althaus-Reid's core concepts - indigeneity, economic oppression, the body, indecency, heterosexuality, and sex, as well as setting her life in context with an overview of her stance on feminist teaching and activism, and her critique of Latin American liberation theology.
Designed to introduce a new generation to her work, this volume serves as both an indispensable guidebook and a launchpad for students to explore her extraordinary writing for themselves.
