Overview

Homofiles: Theory, Sexuality, and Graduate Studies, edited by Jes Battis, collects the work of gay, lesbian, and transgender graduate students who are pursuing studies across the humanities. The contributors' essays address the various relationships between sexuality and scholarship within their respective programs, and present arguments on topics ranging from queer literature to police brutality. This is the first anthology to specifically explore the role of queer and transgender intellectuals-in-training within the academy, and the contributors both analyze and challenge the structures of academia that they are working in as cultural critics.

Editorial Reviews

Sarah E. Chinn
In essays filled with personal insight and theoretical rigor, Homofiles introduces us to a new generation of queer graduate students. This book proves once again how much LGBT studies has to say not just about the unequal power relations endemic in academia, but the intersections of race, gender, sexuality, and embodiment we grapple with daily.
Kevin Kumashiro
Provocative, original, and moving. With this new book, Battis has assembled the next generation of scholars who are troubling the soul of queer studies.
