Kadji Amin

ka

Kadji Amin received his Ph.D. in Romance Studies (French) with a graduate Certificate in Feminist Studies from Duke University in 2009. His research and teaching interests include queer historiography and temporality, affect studies, literary modernism, transgender studies, and French cultural studies. His research, which has been published in French Studies and GLQ: A Journal of Lesbian and Gay Studies and is forthcoming in Transgender Studies Quarterly, focuses on queer counterhistoriographies that disrupt contemporary narratives about gay and lesbian history and politics. His current book manuscript, “Untimely Genet,” seeks to amplify twentieth-century French author, playwright, and activist Jean Genet’s untimely effects on contemporary queer studies. The book uses Genet’s writing, political engagements, and life practices to explore queer modes of affiliation, affect, and identification – including those that have as much to do with imprisonment, delinquency, and criminality as with sexuality – that do not articulate smoothly with dominant narratives about gay and lesbian history.
