Editorial Reviews


The book is an antidote to theorizing without example. Examples of thoughtful activism as research for social justice are alive on every page of Flaunt It!
William Schubert, 2010 -- The Wellspring,

Flaunt It! has received a 2010 Critics Choice Book Award from the American Educational Studies Association.

«This book disrupts one of the great silences in education. From the recruitment of army privates, to the privatization of schools, to the norming of teacher training, Therese Quinn and Erica R. Meiners show how the ‘straightening’ of our students has been central to the hidden curriculum of school reform; and how fear of the queer and fear of the racial are intimate partners in the systematic violation of public bodies. We who are concerned with in/justice must read this book.» (K. Wayne Yang, Assistant Professor of Ethnic Studies, University of California, San Diego)
«Therese Quinn and Erica R. Meiners, engaged educators, encourage us to see no separation between scholarship and activism, our professions and our politics. They press us to re-consider what we do, and what really matters in our work and in the world.» (Annette Henry, Professor of Education, University of Washington, Tacoma)
«This book breaks boundaries and situates itself between the tensions of scholarly words and active resistance to oppression. The language is articulate, the ideas compelling, and the authors take the reader through a decisive anatomy of educational activism, dissecting each issue, demanding solutions. It is a book about social justice, but it is also about tough subjects, about gutsy responses, and an unqualified urge to change the educational world.» (Didi Khayatt, Professor, Faculty of Education, York University)
«The authors combine powerful reports of their interventions against educational privatization, militarization, and anti-queer organizations in U.S. schools with an unflinching analysis of how queer theory and ‘attitude’ can push back at normalized social conceptions of all sorts. This is a vital piece of practical, yet scholarly work.» (Jean Anyon, Author, ‘Theory and Empirical Research: Toward Critical Social Explanation’)

This book is just the best -- exposes how heteronormative institutions not only oppress queers in our society but also promote militarism and other ills. Anyone interested in social justice, education, and the realization of dignity and a fulfilling life for all should read this book. Therese Quinn and Erica Meiners don't just talk the talk (academic analysis) but they walk the walk (activism).

Amazing writers with a message that needs to be read by ALL public educators and citizens who strive for a true democracy, not a democracy for some and not "others".
