This is part 2 of 6 of the dossier What do we talk about when we talk about queer death?, edited by M. Petricola. The contributions collected in this article sit at the crossroads between thanatology, gender studies, and LGBT+ studies and tackle questions such as: how can queer death studies problematise heteronormative/cisnormative constructions of dying, death, and mourning? How can queer death studies approach the post-mortem manipulation of transgender identities? How can this discipline change the current cultural perception of the link between queerness and suicide?
The present article includes the following contributions: – Alasuutari, V., Queering the heteronormative and cisnormative lifeworld of death; – Whitestone S., Queering as identity preservation: transgender identity after death; – Goret Hansen L., When i talk about queer death, I talk about trans-necropolitics and suicide prevention; – Jaworski K., Notes towards rethinking the agency of queer youth suicide; – Doletskaya O., Queer death and victimhood in Russia: ‘westernised queer activism’; – Zubillaga-Pow J., Lesbian Liebestod: sapphic suicide in chinese society.
