Kim Emery is currently at work on a book about queer theory and the future of the university. Her research interests are interdisciplinary, and concern the intersections of representational conventions with history and politics. She is the author of The Lesbian Index: Pragmatism and Lesbian Subjectivity in the Twentieth-Century United States.
