Moving into the next ten years
This paper begins by introducing the Special Issue of the Journal of Language and Sexuality. Then the paper shifts focus, to consider concerns that have shaped studies of language and sexuality over the past ten years and are shaping these studies’ immediate and emerging interests. The paper also considers how the Journal could support these interests in language and sexuality oriented in terms of a “mesh of possibilities …” (Sedgwick 1993: 8) rather than psychosocial processes, masculine/feminine binaries, or hetero/homosexual hierarchies.
Keywords: possibilities, queer linguistics, trans linguistics, binaries and hierarchies
