‘Unruly Figures provides a provocative and theoretically rich account of the uneven terrain of contemporary sexual politics.’ — Gender & Society
‘Social commitment and intellectual vigour make this journey adventurous, and the author transmits its spirit through her evocative, lyrical writing.’ — Review of Development Change
‘In the long history of writing about queer theory both in South Asia and beyond, Mokkil’s study is unique in bringing Kerala and sexuality studies together in a powerfully pointed yet capacious way.’ — Geeta Patel, Author of Risky Bodies and Techno-Intimacy: Reflections on Sexuality, Media, Science, Finance
‘Mokkil deftly reads, in an in-depth and sustained manner, a range of materials that constitute zones of publicity and intimacy in Kerala, drawing out how figurations of gender and sexuality mark this fraught terrain. Linking Indian and Anglo-American feminist and queer studies to these readings, the analysis makes a strong case for the importance of the regional as a site for new directions in critical scholarship.’ — Ritty Lukose, Author of Liberalizations’s Children: Gender, Youth, and Consumer Citizenship in Globalizing India
“A tremendous advance over the current scholarship analyzing visuality, affect, and South-to-South queer diasporic artistic expression, Unruly Visions charts new cartographies of diasporic connections that provide a fresh orientation to our understanding of settler colonialism, empire, and racialization. Gayatri Gopinath’s book is a singular achievement that will have a profound impact within queer studies, indigenous and diaspora studies, visual studies, and aesthetics.” —Nayan Shah, author of Stranger Intimacy: Contesting Race, Sexuality, and the Law in the North American West
“A wonderfully detailed examination of queer diasporic films and visual art projects, this book explores how critical regionalism can interrupt conventional conceptions of local/global and metropolis/diaspora distinctions. Gayatri Gopinath's concept of a 'queer cartographic imaginary' resists neat categories and generalizations, offering an eclectic range of case studies—queer diaspora from Kerala and the Middle East, Latinx and U.S. cultures of immigration, and indigeneity.” —Ann Cvetkovich, author of Depression: A Public Feeling
