More than just a Duke author, Sedgwick helped to define the
Press as we went through major editorial changes in the 1990s. In 1992, along
with Michèle Aina Barale, Michael Moon, and Jonathan Goldberg, she founded the
influential Series Q, helping to found the discipline of queer theory. Under
her guidance, Duke Press has become a leader in that field; Series Q now
includes 42 books.
