Join coeditors Lisa Lowe and Jack Halberstam as they discuss their collaboration on the Perverse Modernities series, published since 2001 by Duke University Press with Ken Wissoker, Editorial Director at Duke University Press. The series publishes work that transgresses modern divisions of knowledge that have historically separated the consideration of sexuality, and its concern with desire, gender, bodies, and performance, on the one hand, from the consideration of race, colonialism, and political economy, on the other, in order to explore how the mutual implication of race, colonialism, and sexuality has been rendered perverse and unintelligible within the logics of modernity.

Cosponsored by Intellectual Publics, cosponsored by Revolutionizing American Studies, Advanced Research Collaborative, and CLAGS (Center for LGBTQ Studies).
