Katie Sutton is an Australian Research Council postdoctoral fellow at the University of Melbourne, where she is working as part of a research team on an interdisciplinary history of the case study genre. She has previously undertaken postdoctoral research on early twentieth-century German sexual subcultures as a DAAD fellow at the Universitat Potsdam, and holds a PhD in German Studies from the University of Melbourne.
The author makes an important contribution to the scholarship in that she has worked through the printed material systematically to give an authoritative account of a female sub-culture under the republic. As far as I am aware, she is the first to do so in the English language. The book therefore fills an important gap in Weimar cultural/gender studies.A" * Anthony McElligott, University of Limerick This work is a worthwhile examination of the masculine woman in an emergent field of female masculinity, a category that has not been addressed in Weimar to the extent that this work does. Sutton's text denies the reader the comfort of binary sexualities and instead unpacks the many-layered complexities and interplays of (mostly female) queer genders and sexualities." * Vibeke Rutzou Petersen, Drake University
