Clare Hemmings is a Lecturer in Gender Studies Theory at the Gender Institute at the London School of Economics and Political Science.
"Armed with theoretical agility, experiences personal and political, feminist and queer commitments, and an unflinching skepticism, Clare Hemmings wanders through the multiple spaces of bisexuality-geographical, theoretical, political, and cultural. Her report from these fronts is keen and challenging, a welcome addition to the development of critical bisexual theory, and to gender and sexuality studies more generally." -- Joshua Gamson, author of Freaks Talk Back: Tabloid Talk Shows and Sexual Nonconformity
"Clare Hemmings transforms the historically marginalized space of bisexuality. Here is an unfettered bisexual theorist whose prose is disarmingly lucid and powerful. Hemmings pushes the queer performative subject way beyond its currently rigid lesbian and gay locations. Feminists, postmodernists, queer and gender theorists alike should be indebted to Hemmings for grounding her truly original theories on bisexuality in meticulous and convincing scholarship." -- Jyl Lynn Felman, author of Never a Dull Moment: Teaching and the Art of Performance
