Eric A. Stanley

Department: Gender & Women's Studies

Professor Stanley‘s research and teaching work with radical trans/queer critique, anti-colonial feminisms, and critical theory. They are currently completing their first manuscript Atmospheres of Violence that argues racialized anti-trans/queer violence, including direct attacks, prisons, suicide, and HIV/AIDS, is foundational to, and not an aberration of, western modernity. They are also working on two other projects, the first on nonsovereignty and the trans/queer people involved in Left insurgent underground activities in the 1970s and 1980s, and a new project on geographies of dislocation and trans resistance, focusing on the Bay Area.
