Description

Family law is a site of social conflict and the erasure of non-traditional families. This book explores how conservative religious and progressive queer groups can cooperatively work together to expand family law’s recognition beyond the traditional state-sponsored family. This book also looks to future arenas of queer and religious political cooperation beyond family law.



"Insightful, provocative, and cutting-edge, Palazzo and Redding’s book brings a novel perspective to an area that suffers academic stagnation: the politics of the recognition of diverse family structures. The premise of the book—those religious activists and queer advocates, though strange bedfellows, might be allies in promoting a more pluralistic conception of relationships—opens up unexpected and unexplored intellectual avenues. Written by a group of worldwide leading thinkers in diverse disciplines, the chapters offer a nuanced and sober account of the possibilities and the boundaries of a queer-religious alliance. A bold intervention, this book should be useful to anyone with an interest in queer politics, relationship recognition, and religious perspectives in law." — Erez Aloni, Associate Professor, Peter A. Allard School of Law, University of British Columbia, Canada.



“This volume makes useful and original contributions to several fields, addressing relatively new and emerging areas. A key strength is its openness to the varying potential for alliances between religious groups and queer ones, giving us conceptual tools for dealing with this diversity on the ground.”— Robert Leckey, Dean, Professor, and Samuel Gale Chair, Faculty of Law, McGill University, Canada.



“This thought-provoking volume offers a thorough triangulation, from queer and religious perspectives, of the role of the state, civic organizations, and individuals in norming nonnormative families. Following a rich introduction, the contributors each convincingly demonstrate how queer and religious groups, as unlikely companions, can advance family law and broader constitutional debate toward much-needed legal pluralism.”—Frederik Swennen, Dean and Professor of Family Law and Kinship Studies, University of Antwerp, Belgium.



Nausica Palazzo is an Assistant Professor at NOVA School of Law, Lisbon.
