About the Author

Hilary Malatino is an assistant professor of women's, gender, and sexuality studies at Pennsylvania State University and core faculty in the Rock Ethics Institute.


"Malatino's Queer Embodiment provides much fodder for thinking about sex and gender through the often overlooked positionality of intersex experience. In terms of its contributions to feminist and queer theory, Queer Embodiment offers fresh engagements with the philosophies of Grosz, Butler, Haraway, and Barad, while building on work in queer, trans, and intersex studies by Fausto-Sterling and Stryker among others. The text would make a notable contribution to courses (undergraduate and graduate) engaging queer and trans theory, feminist theory, bioethics, and/or the intertwined histories of sex, gender, and sexuality."-Eden Kinkaid, Feminist Formations -- Eden Kinkaid * Feminist Formations *
"Queer Embodiment joins a small shelf of important work in critical intersex studies. In beautifully written, lucidly argued, theoretically sharp, and emotionally evocative prose, Malatino articulates queer and trans theory with continental philosophy and a racially conscious decolonial perspective to produce a teratologically sublime work of scholarship on bodies that challenge our culture's belief in biologically based binary genders."-Susan Stryker, founding coeditor of TSQ: Transgender Studies Quarterly -- Susan Stryke
"Shrewd, eloquent, and compelling, Queer Embodiment is a thing of beauty, a monstrous assemblage of genres and methods that at once reorients contemporary scholarship on queer corporealities and mobilizes the possibility of new forms of coalitional praxis."-Nikki Sullivan, honorary associate professor, Department of Media, Music, Communication and Cultural Studies at Macquarie University, in Sydney, New South Wales -- Nikki Sullivan
