Such sad news. It seems as though Eve Kosofsky Sedgwick has died. She was fighting cancer for a long time and passed away last night.

Eve Sedgwick contributed a number of really amazing works to the gender/queer studies world, including Between Men: English Literature and Male Homosocial Desire (1985) and Epistemology of the Closet (1990). She was totally my sophomore year of college academic idol, and I know that gender geeks everywhere will be so sad to hear this news.
