Scholarly yet provocatively written, Academic Outlaws presents a discussion of how life in the academic world is experienced by gay men and lesbian women. Using a narrative style that mixes autobiography, case study data and fiction, William G Tierney provides timely insight into the challenges gays and lesbians face in higher education and proposes an alternative process for redefining long-established cultural norms. He works at the intersection of contested issues both in the intellectual and practical realms of university life, exploring the theoretical and real-life implications of cultural studies, queer theory and critical theory, among others. This book demonstrates the need to reframe concepts such as oppression, difference, language and culture as they affect the social culture of our learning institutions.
