Kathryn Bond Stockton is Professor of English and Director of Gender Studies at the University of Utah. She is the author of God Between Their Lips: Desire Between Women in Irigaray, Bronte, and Eliot.
"Kathryn Bond Stockton refuses clumsy, outmoded distinctions between racial and sexual 'minorities.' Instead, in Beautiful Bottom, Beautiful Shame she boldly examines those many places in our culture where shame, debasement, humiliation, and abjection draw together the black and the queer. At the same time, she carefully details the ways in which these sites of negative emotion and affect have been utilized by American artists and intellectuals to produce work that is not only compelling but often stunningly beautiful. Beautiful Bottom, Beautiful Shame is the type of work for which so many of us have yearned."--Robert F. Reid-Pharr, author of Black Gay Man "Beautiful Bottom, Beautiful Shame is an exciting, pointed, splendidly written, culturally important book."--Eve Kosofsky Sedgwick, author of Touching Feeling: Affect, Pedagogy, Performativity
