Biographical details

Annamarie Jagose is internationally known as a scholar in feminist studies, lesbian/gay studies and queer theory. She is the author of four monographs, most recently Orgasmology, which takes orgasm as its scholarly object in order to think queerly about questions of politics and pleasure; practice and subjectivity; agency and ethics. She is also an award-winning novelist and short story writer.

From 2003 - 2011, Professor Jagose was co-editor of GLQ: A Journal of Lesbian and Gay Studies with Professor Ann Cvetkovich from the University of Austin, Texas. She continues to be active on a number of editorial and advisory boards in feminist and sexuality studies.

Professor Jagose held positions in the Department of English with Cultural Studies at the University of Melbourne and the Department of Film, Television and Media Studies at the University of Auckland before coming to the University of Sydney in 2011 to take up the position of Head of the School of Letters, Art and Media.
