Jack Halberstam’s current research in the fields of gender, queer theory, visual and cultural studies focuses on transgenderism, on anti-disciplinary knowledge, on subcultures, and on wildness. His recent books include 'Trans*: A Quick and Quirky Account of Gender Variability' (2018), 'Gaga Feminism: Sex, Gender and The End of Normal' (Beacon Press, 2012), 'The Queer Art of Failure' (Duke, 2011). Specialising in a range of mediums, from Gothic literature to film, Halberstam’s pioneering work helped define the field of sexuality studies with publications including 'In A Queer Time and Place: Transgender Bodies, Subcultural Lives' (NYU, 2005), and 'Female Masculinity' (Duke, 1998), along with articles in numerous journals, magazines, and collections.
