The connections between race and sexuality are constant in our lives, yet they are not often linked together in productive, analytical ways.

This illuminating book delves into the interrelation of race and sexuality as inseparable elements of our identities and social lives. The authors approach the topic through an interdisciplinary lens, focusing on power, social arrangements and hierarchies, and the production of social difference. Their analysis maps the historical, discursive, and structural manifestations of race and sexuality, noting the everyday effects that the intersections of these categories have on people s lived experiences. Considering both US–based and transnational cases, this book presents an empirical grounding for understanding how race and sexuality are mutually constitutive categories.

Providing a comprehensive overview of racialized sexualities, this book is an essential text for any advanced course on race, sexuality, and intersectionality.
