| Book Description: |
Responding to work by Eve Sedgwick and recent media attention to queer suicide, this project theorizes performative melancholia, a condition where, regardless of sexual orientation, overinvestment in gender norms causes subjects who are unable to embody those norms to experience socially expected ('normal') gender as something unattainable or lost.
