Queer Jewish Studies – Ein Fach neu denken

The new research field Queer Jewish Studies is being formed by an increasing number of publications that deal with the queer, meaning non- heteronormative, category-breaking, and disruptive potential in Jewish Studies. Starting with the 1980s in which queer Jews tried to make themselves heard, this article provides an overview of what has already been achieved in this field. It also points out how Jewish Studies can continue to grow and become a better version of itself by adopting intersectional and more diverse perspectives.
