About the Author

Sally R. Munt is Professor of Media and Cultural Studies at the University of Sussex , UK. She has published extensively in cultural studies and is the author or editor of seven previous books.


'Queer Attachments affords all the benefit of Sally Munt's mobile mind and lucid, eloquent writing. But the best thing is how finely she gets into the very guts of the experience of shame - and making space there to move around and explore, reveals immense complexity as well as a profound source of motivation.' Eve Kosofsky Sedgwick, City University of New York, USA 'Edgy and provocative, Queer Attachments tackles the contagious dynamics of gay shame, exploring not only its power to abject and deform, but to produce unpredicted, self-affirming forms of sociality. Passionately argued and sweeping in scope, its analysis of the way shame informs and links queer, Irish and working class identities shows what's at stake in moving beyond gay pride.' Valerie Traub, University of Michigan,USA 'This book deserves to be read, but also contested, by a wider audience than just those who delight in queer studies. It is a dazzling, provocative and highly enjoyable read for all those interested in matters shameful, queer, emotional and cultural.' Ken Plummer, Times Higher Education Supplement 'Pulling as much from Michel Foucault as from queer theory, the author imbues this intelligent analysis with an unusually genuine, personal quality...Munt's language is visual, visceral, and vivid, with a whimsical abundance of mixed metaphors...the book is a valuable contribution to the field. A must read for scholars of British cultural studies...Highly recommended.' Choice 'Professor Sally Munt is a prolific and diverse academic author whose subjects range from feminist crime fiction to butch/femme identities.' - listed as one of 50 most influential lesbians.
