Comments Aberrations in Black: Toward a Queer of Color Critique

  1. i read this a while ago i will always remember being so impressed with its formal structure the idea of placing excised portions of african american canonical texts side by side with gross antiblack sociology documents is so brilliant this is the kind of writing that binds race and gender together in an analysis against systems of power it s really really smart.


  2. Great book with very academic and eye opening statements The author purposefully uses difficult language to articulate a point that has not previously been made Canonical sociology, as well as canonical literature is something that we don t notice or pay much thought to However, it juxtaposes a lot of history that is roots for where we are today, as people and as a nation I encourage anyone who is interested in learning about the notions and ideology that surrounds us everyday to read this book [...]


  3. Definitely some interesting points, but very dense writing at times I had to re read some paragraphs quite a few times to understand what he was saying While some of this denseness is certainly understandable due to the complex nature of the topics, I felt that it sometimes also made a few a rather simple points seem complicated than they actually were Overall though, this was certainly an interesting and informative read.


  4. If only for the chapter where he discusses the missing chapter from Ralph Ellison s Invisible Man, this book is worth the perusal Ferguson s focus is on the intersection between some pretty effed up sociological findings , women of color feminist and queer of color criticism, and African American history and literary texts particularly Invisible Man, Wright s Native Son, Morrison s Sula, and Baldwin s Go Tell It on the Mountain It s a dense read but an ultimately eye opening look at American his [...]


  5. The sociology of race relations in America typically describes an intersection of poverty, race, and economic discrimination But what is missing from the picture sexual difference can be as instructive as what is present In this ambitious work, Roderick A Ferguson reveals how the discourses of sexuality are used to articulate theories of racial difference in the field of sociology He shows how canonical sociology Gunnar Myrdal, Ernest Burgess, Robert Park, Daniel Patrick Moynihan, and William Ju [...]


  6. Really a great work that explores the often implied but unexplored intersection between race, sexuality, SES, and much It is an essential book for anyone working in the social sciences, history, or a wide variety of other fields Where it falls short, for me, is in the incredibly dense and theoretical language Despite being crammed with information, I found myself saying And at the end of several sections With that said, I highly recommend it just read it slowly and pay close attention to the en [...]



  7. i wish i had read this book a lot earlier in life ferguson is super adept at bringing much queer, critical race, and trans national scholarship together lovely.



  8. Extremely hard to read, in my opinion, but it s worth the work It has me looking at the novels in the book in a whole new light, and the idea of racism in a whole new way 4 5 stars
