Reading Bataille now ( Book )
14 editions published between 2006 and 2007 in English and held by 355 libraries worldwide
The work of Georges Bataille (1897-1962) has often been reduced to his outrageous, erotic, and libertine fiction and essays. This book presents contemporary interpretations that situate Bataille in French and European intellectual traditions, and brings forward key concepts to understand the challenges posed by his important work and philosophy
Queering freedom by Shannon Winnubst( Book )
10 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 301 libraries worldwide
In Queering Freedom, Shannon Winnubst examines contemporary categories of difference--sexuality, race, gender, class, and nationality--and how they operate within the politics of domination. Drawing on the work of Georges Bataille, Michel Foucault, and others, Winnubst engages feminist theory, race theory, and queer theory as she sheds light on blind spots that have characterized thinking about freedom. She develops strategies of ''queering freedom'' to undo the more subtle spatial and temporal norms and shatter structures of domination. This thoughtful and provocative work challenges the corn
Way too cool : selling out race and ethics by Shannon Winnubst( Book )
5 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 107 libraries worldwide
Life, liberty, and the pursuit of cool have informed the American ethos since at least the 1970s. Whether we strive for it in politics or fashion, cool is big business for those who can sell it across a range of markets and media. Yet the concept wasn't always a popular commodity. Cool began as a potent aesthetic of post-World War II black culture, embodying a very specific, highly charged method of resistance to white supremacy and the globalized exploitation of capital. Way Too Cool follows the hollowing-out of “coolness" in modern American culture and its reflection of a larger evasion of

Empty diversity in Muslim America: religion, race, and the politics of U.S. i+nclusion by Taneem Husain( file )
1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 1 library worldwide
In the second section of my dissertation, I turn to representations that do not work toward inclusion. Examining the celebrity gossip website Celeb Jihad, independent film Profane, and Michael Muhammad Knight's novel The Taqwacores, I explore how these depictions of Muslim Americans question this empty diversity, which requires whitewashing difference for inclusion. I argue that these texts do this in two primary ways: 1) they engage, rather than ignore, the terrorist trope; and 2) they structure gender and sexuality in ways that question both U.S. heteronormative ideals and stereotypes of the exotic or oppressed Muslim. By doing so, these texts refuse to conform to the politics of respectability required of Muslim Americans. I argue that these representations allow for a countercultural understanding of identity, where minority subjects can deconstruct mainstream identity politics by steadfastly holding onto identity labels. By examining these two groups of texts, my dissertation illustrates how Muslim American racialized religious identity is beginning to shift ideas about race not only in mainstream America, but also in antiracist, queer understandings of identity
