This edited collection brings together scholars working in the disciplines of queer theory, critical communication pedagogy, gender and sexuality, and cultural studies to articulate the possibility of a queer communication pedagogy. It aims to create a dialogue among scholars within communication pedagogy and queer studies to address queer issues and current events from a communication perspective; to identify institutional and educational barriers, oppressions, and issues pertaining to queer lives in the context of higher education; to theorize the possibility of queer communication pedagogy; and to offer paths toward and innovative ideas about materializing queer communication pedagogy as a discipline.

"The great benefit of this work is its attention to the ways in which critical communication pedagogy and queer theory can be unified to create a new pedagogical paradigm, a responsive pedagogy about communication, difference, and praxis." --David H. Kahl, Jr. Penn State Erie, The Behrend College
