Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"A stimulating and engaging way to consider how vision is deployed--whether as privileged mediator or as deceptive medium--in the construction (and deconstruction) of gender categories."--The Medieval Review

"In Troubled Vision (and particularly in part two, "Troubled Looks," which is in many ways the heart of the volume), Campbell and Mills have provided a stimulating range of approaches to the intersection of vision, gender, and desire in pre-modern culture." --Suzanne Akbari, University of Toronto
