Description

Jennifer Doyle is the author of Hold It Against Me: Difficulty and Emotion in

Contemporary Art (Duke, 2013) and Sex Objects: Art and the Dialectics of Desire

(University of Minnesota, 2006). She explores athletic, physical, and sporting

practices in contemporary art, and contrasts the access they give us to languages of

struggle and flight with other ways of being and moving through the world. Doyle is

Professor of English at University of California, Riverside, and a 201314 Fulbright

Distinguished Chair at the University of the Arts, London.
