"This book uses key insights from queer theory to understand the experiences of LGBT teachers and, in the process, sheds light on both subjects. Those interested in both the 'real world' experiences of LGBT educators and in developing a theoretical framework for understanding them will find this a fascinating read.."
-Kevin Jennings, Executive Director, Gay, Lesbian, and Straight Education Network (GLSEN)
"Kate Evans inaugurates new directions for teacher education: not those that instruct identity-although she offers a lively history of this dreary insistence-but rather, those that invite the cinematic scenery of identity to unfold in slow motion, and so compose that accidental mix of education, desire, prohibition, character, with the stuff of queer dreams.."
-Deborah P. Britzman, Professor of Education and Social and Political Though, York University, Toronto
"In this nuanced text, Kate Evans helps us understand how we negotiate the difficult terrain of self and identity, and how our identities impact our work as teachers. Evans' keen insights force us to reflect on our own lives.."
-Bill Tierney, Wilbur Kieffer Professor of Higher Education, University of Southern California
"This is an exciting and important book . . . Kate Evans has advanced significantly our understanding of the pedagogical politics of emotion.."
-from the foreword by William F. Pinar, author of "Queer Theory in Education
"What else "can we feel like when we feel like teaching? All at once, Evans' surprising and important study shows us the utter complications of the public and the private, of what happens when the teacher's self becomes both a unit of study, and a relation calleddesire. We meet crucial and new questions for teacher education: what does sexuality have to do with teaching? If sexuality is inextricably tied to and made from our sense of self and others how can we think from the matter of eros in learning and teaching? Evans' moves are bold, engaging, and compassionate in her study of learning from the emotional work of gay teachers.."
-Deborah P. Britzman, Professor of Education and Social and Political Thought, York University, Toronto.
