One aspect of our mission is to help develop promising new academic questions into established disciplines. A look at the history of DUP’s publishing program in Gay & Lesbian Studies / Queer Theory provides some great examples:
• In 1993, Duke University Press released the first book in Series Q, a twenty-year project that brought a new theoretical lens to Queer Theory and Gay & Lesbian Studies.
• In 1998, the arrival of GLQ: A Journal of Lesbian and Gay Studies cemented the Press’s role as the new field's leading forum.
• Perverse Modernities, a series launched in 2001, has pushed the field even further to transcend global and disciplinary boundaries.
• Gay & Lesbian Studies is now a recognized academic specialty at universities around the world, and Duke University Press will continue to publish its vital new work in Theory Q, a new series of books beginning this year.
And now Duke University Press is proud to help the conversation evolve once again with the launch of TSQ: Transgender Studies Quarterly in 2014, the first journal of its kind. TSQ serves a growing area of cultural studies that explores the diversity of gender, sexuality, embodiment, and identity.
