Review:

"This anthology demonstrates that the field of queer theory has made and continues to make an important contribution to our understanding of sexuality in all its forms.." -William S. Hampl," The Gay and Lesbian Review "Kathryn Bond Stockton's "Eve's Queer Child is one of the richest and rigorous--not to say laugh out loud humorous--essays that I've encountered in all of queer theory.." -William S. Hampl, "The Gay and Lesbian Review ""Regarding Sedgwick: Essays on Queer Culture and Critical Theory is the only book-length study of the writings of the influential queer theorist Eve Kosofsky Sedgwick...the editors have assembled an estimable collection of authors.." -William S. Hampl, "The Gay and Lesbian Review "Eve Kosofsky Sedgwick's writings exercise a deroutinizing effect on hard-held habits of thought. Reading her one feels one might, in fact, think anew. The contributors to Regarding Sedgwick celebrate and pursue this special quality of Sedgwick's. The result is a volume that is capacious, inventive, polyrhythmic, full of productive cross-purposes, sometimes wild or extravagant, and often moving. Michael Lucey, University of California, Berkeley." "The power, range, and immense utility of Eve Kosofsky Sedgwick's restlessly evolving, always surprising work are put on conspicuous display by the many different kinds of writing brought together in this experimental collection.." -David M. Halperin, W. H. Auden Collegiate Professor of English Language and Literature, University of Michigan, Ann Arbor and author of ONE HUNDRED YEARS OF HOMOSEXUALITY and SAINT FOUCAULT.

Synopsis:

Eve Kosofsky Sedgwick is one of the most important figures in the history of modern gender studies, primarily for the theoretical grounding she has provided for the field of queer theory. It's often said that Sedgwick invented Queer Theory. She is also a widely respected, even beloved, teacher. This book, which features an interview with Sedgwick, is a collection of new essays by established scholars, each of whom knows Sedgwick well.
