Jasbir K. Puar is associate professor of women's and gender studies at Rutgers University. She has also been a visiting lecturer in the Department of Performance Studies at NYU and a visiting fellow at the Institute for Cultural Inquiry in Berlin. She received her Ph.D. in ethnic studies from the University of California at Berkeley in 1999 and an M.A. from the University of York, England, in women's studies in 1993. Puar is the author of Terrorist Assemblages: Homonationalism in Queer Times (Duke University Press 2007), which won the 2007 Cultural Studies Book Award from the Association for Asian American Studies. A redacted version of Terrorist Assemblages has been translated into French as Homonationalisme. Politiques queers après le 11 Septembre (Editions Amsterdam, 2012). Puar's forthcoming monograph, Affective Politics: States of Debility and Capacity (Duke University Press), takes up questions of disability in the context of theories of bodily assemblages that trouble intersectional identity frames.
