This review essay considers the “state of the field” of queer studies, as pondered by participants in the conference “Rethinking Sex.” Held at the University of Pennsylvania, March 4–6, 2009, “Rethinking Sex” honored the twenty-fifth anniversary of the publication of Gayle Rubin's generative essay “Thinking Sex.” Participants demonstrated the expansive reach and range of queer studies as it has evolved in the twenty-five years since, attended to its limits, and argued for enlarging its frame to gain traction in our own vexed political moment.
