Series Editor with Lisa Lowe for Perverse Modernities: Race, Sex and the Break‑Up of Knowledge, a book series which contributes to the general project of the critique of
modernity by soliciting book projects that engage the problems of "knowing," "historicizing," “enacting” or "narrating" forms, communities, and practices that are constitutively occluded by disciplinary modes of western modernity. PERVERSE MODERNITIES calls for work that studies processes through which gender, race, and sexuality are linked and mutually articulated media of subject formation and social relations, and how such subjects and relations are reproduced and sustained by cultural texts and practices, and significantly, which subjects, texts, and practices can and must be the sites of critical reformulations and alternatives to dominant formations within modernity.
