An Archive of Feelings: Trauma, Sexuality, and Lesbian Public Cultures
Cvetkovich, Ann. An Archive of Feelings: Trauma, Sexuality, and Lesbian Public Cultures. Durham, NC: Duke University Press, 2003. Print book or eBook.
In this book, Cvetkovich observes that the field of trauma studies has ignored the experience of women and queers. Cvetkovich argues for a “sex-positive” approach to sexual trauma and demonstrates how activism, performance, and literature facilitate the creation of public cultures that work through trauma and eliminate the conditions for its production.
