The Deregulated Lesbian: Affective Labor in Postwar Pulp
Joanna Fax is a doctoral candidate in the Department of English and the Center for the Study of Women, Gender and Sexuality at Rice University. Her dissertation, Sexual Deregulation: Reading U.S. Subjects of Affective Labor from the Early Cold War to the Neoliberal Era, examines the poetics of homosexual identity in the work of writers who grappled with the expanding service economy as a relational arena that elicited the loosening of sexual norms even as it re-regulated and modified them. She has published articles on Tea Party ideology and the poet Adrienne Rich.
