Reviews

Reading Sideways teaches us how to read dialogues between art objects and artistic fields in ways that remind us of why the humanities matter: because the friction between artistic media and our encounters with art estranges what we think we know about ourselves and our attachments. Radiantly written, it is itself both a powerful theory of aesthetics and an aesthetic object worth our deep engagement.--Elizabeth Freeman, University of California, Davis
Thinking sideways with Dana Seitler is immensely satisfying. Her creative spread of historical contexts exquisitely matches her layered readings, making bent forms of gendered sexuality newly thinkable. Deep intellectual pleasure results from how art matters for politics here. I savored this ride at every turn.--Kathryn Bond Stockton, The University of Utah
