    In Feeling Queer Jurisprudence: Injury, Intimacy, Identity (Routledge, 2020), Senthorun Sunil Raj undertakes an expansive, careful, and caring examination of emotion across an array of late 20th, early 21st century “pro-LGBT” cases and legislative reforms. Surveying flashpoints of political and legal contestation for LGBT people, Raj tracks how disgust, hate, anger, fear and love ricochet and shapeshift among litigants, judges, activists and scholars. Such emotions, explain Raj, have been indispensable for advancing the legal recognition of LGBT lives and relationships. At the same time, the “jurisprudential crystallization” of emotion risks devaluing and therefore endangering non-normative genders, sexualities and intimacies. The Enticements editors interviewed Raj about the arguments, methods, and proposals of Feeling Queer Jurisprudence.
