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 straight temporality. 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
