    Reviews

    Peta Mayer:

    "Jagose draws on Foucault and Barthes to comment on the diffusion of sexual knowledge through the scientific/pornographic with the imperative to represent as uncoded that which is accessible through the photographic lens. By stripping the effects of sequence back to its licensing mechanics, Inconsequence reveals how lesbianism comes to figure as the derivation by which all sexuality is generated.... Jagose's incisive deconstruction, and exquisitely detailed footnotes, are invaluable to learn from—to witness how she does what she does—and make Inconsequence an important tool for any contemporary theorist."

    Valerie Rohy, author of Impossible Women:

    "Inconsequence addresses the relation of lesbian sexuality to sequential logic through subtle, persuasive, and surprising readings of both canonical and noncanonical texts. Jagose dares to question the grounding assumptions of both heteronormative discourse and lesbian theory, and in the process advances our understanding of both."
