Rice University's study group in Queer Theory

inquiries is a new study group sponsored by the Center for the Study of Cultures. We are the first academic organization at Rice to address queer theory and offer the chance to investigate this exciting new field. We have called it inquiries to stress its focus upon queer theory's interrogation of sexual and gender norms, including categories of sexual identity.
