MISKOLCI, Richard. Queer Theory and Sociology: the challenging analysis of normalization. Sociologias [online]. 2009, n.21, pp.150-182. ISSN 1807-0337.

Originated from the American Cultural Studies, Queer Theory has gained a reputation as a critical counterpoint to the sociological studies on sexual minorities and the political identity of the social movements. Based on a creative implementation of post-structuralist philosophy for the understanding of how sexuality shapes the contemporary social order, for more than a decade its affinities and tensions, as related to the social sciences, and particularly to sociology, are in discussion. This article joins the debate, analyzes the similarities and distinctions between those two, and finally presents an overview of the current dialogue, pointing to a possible convergence in the queer project to enable an analysis of normalization.

Palavras-chave : Queer Theory; Sociology; Sexuality; Differences; Michel Foucault; Analysis of normalization.
