Most widely held works by Shannon Winnubst
Reading Bataille now ( Book )
13 editions published between 2006 and 2007 in English and held by 354 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 304 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 )
10 editions published between 2015 and 2016 in English and held by 126 libraries worldwide
"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 race, racism, and ethics that is a hallmark of in neoliberal capitalism. Revisiting watershed events in late-twentieth-century U.S. history, this book shows how the perversion of cool effectively quashes our desire to resist abuses of power, sounding an alarm for those who care about preserving our ties to an American tradition of resistance."

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
Utilizing the lessons of comparative race theory and queer of color critique, I examine a wide range of cultural texts in my work, including fiction, autobiography, websites, and film. First, reading Umm Juwayriyah's Urban Islamic Fiction novel The Size of a Mustard Seed and Ayesha Mattu and Nura Maznavi's autobiographical collection Love, InshAllah: The Secret Love Lives of American Muslim Women, I argue that Muslim Americans seek to prove themselves tolerable by reconfiguring the lines of the dominant paradigm of race in the United States: the black/white binary. The problem of depicting the Muslim American plight along racial lines is that many Muslims do not have a definable race: their most significant characteristic, religious identification, transcends the color of their skin. I argue that by emphasizing the benign nature of race in the Muslim American community, while also depicting gender roles and sexuality in ways that complement normative American ideals, these texts trivialize the divide between Muslim Americans and the broader U.S. body politic. Muslim Americans thereby exemplify "empty diversity," or difference made benign through racialized religious identity, constructed as such through gender and sexuality
