Queer Liberation Theory Project and Knowledge Mobilization
Queer Liberation Theory Project and Knowledge Mobilization (2013)
Social science research on LGBT groups often focuses on LGBT issues, community services and public policy. But community-based participatory research has yet to explore the unique position of community partners who are also researchers and activists. The Queer Liberation Theory Project is one example of work being done by partners with overlapping titles. It seeks to explore the diverse range of partners doing social research for queer liberation, and its impact on social movements and society overall. It is an example of engaged scholarship that seeks methods for knowledge translation, transfer, and exchange.
