About the Author

Julietta Singh is Associate Professor of English at the University of Richmond.


"A deft intervention in several different fields, Unthinking Mastery powerfully examines the insidious ways that the legacies of colonialism have infiltrated critical conversations in affect, queer, and ecocritical studies." -- Melinda Backer * ASAP/Journal *
"Singh's work stands out in its truly transdisciplinary approach and simultaneous mobilization of feminist, posthuman, and decolonial thought." -- Justyna Poary-Wybranowska * Contemporary Women's Writing *
"While the approach of Unthinking Mastery is clearly interdisciplinary, the author turns foremost to the field of comparative literature to unravel forms of systemic dehumanizing violence that become obvious in forms of embodiment and language/narration. ... Her engagement not only touches on feminist and queer theories but also provides a powerful interconnection between environmental and postcolonial studies." -- Monika Jaeckel * Anthropocenes *
