About the Author

She is also the founding editor of Wave 2.5: A Feminist Zine, a two-time Utne Independent Press Award nominee (2005, 2009).

Reviews

[Feminism is Queer] is an outstanding reference for students and faculty attempting to understand the history and current issues in the LGBTQ+ communities. * Choice Connect *
Marinucci handily synthesizes new and classic theories regarding cultural and scientific definitions of sex, gender, and sexuality in a comprehensive text that is both lucid and erudite. This book will surely become required reading in many courses in women's and gender studies and in sexuality studies. * Elizabeth Arveda Kissling, Eastern Washington University *
In wonderfully accessible and penetrating analyses, Marinucci makes the case that feminist and queer theory are inseparable allies - or should be. With its comprehensive appendix and carefully organized chapters, Feminism is Queer is an ideal text for teaching about gender, sexuality, and the practice of theorizing. * Marjorie Jolles, Roosevelt University *
This brief yet comprehensive book is perfect for anyone who is interested in the origins and meanings of the concept 'queer.' Marinucci's impressive interdisciplinary depth and breadth combine with a readily accessible writing style to make Feminism is Queer a lucid and intelligent treatment of an essentially complex and controversial concept. * Nancy Slonneger Hancock, Northern Kentucky University *
