Investigating modern art, literature, theory and the law, this book illustrates the different ways in which sex, gender and time intersect. It demonstrates that time offers new critical perspectives on sex and gender and makes problematic reductive understandings of sexual identity as well as straight and queer time

Editorial Reviews

''This volume brings the questions of how time may be thought through sex and gender, and how sex/gender may be fundamentally temporal, to a wonderful range of disciplines and historical moments. It not only extends and broadens recent inquiries into sex and time, but also questions any too-easy binary between queer temporality and straighttemporality. These beautifully written, theoretically complex essays come to us at exactly the moment we need them.''- Elizabeth Freeman, Professor of English, University of California, Davis, USA
