Blood Cultures: Medicine, Media, and Militarisms
Spilling blood, managing blood, banking blood, and even sucking blood defined 20th-century America from Alcatraz Island to Guantánamo Bay.
Combining science studies, popular culture, and anti-racist feminist and queer politics, Blood Cultures examines how blood saturated the twentieth-century US cultural imaginary, slipped into laws and policies, flowed across screens, and seeped into our most intimate encounters.
Cathy Hannabach traces how these gendered, sexualized, and racialized blood practices were violently mobilized in the service of US empire, as well as creatively transformed by feminist, anticolonial, anticapitalist, and queer artists and activists.
