Biography

Breanne Fahs is a professor of women and gender studies at Arizona State University, where she specializes in studying women's sexuality, critical embodiment studies, radical feminism and political activism. 

She has published widely in feminist, social science and humanities journals and has authored four books: "Performing Sex" (SUNY Press, 2011), an analysis of the paradoxes of women's "sexual liberation," "The Moral Panics of Sexuality" (Palgrave, 2013), an edited collection that examines cultural anxieties of "scary sex," "Valerie Solanas" (Feminist Press, 2014), a biography of author/would-be assassin Valerie Solanas, and "Out for Blood" (SUNY Press, 2016), a book of essays on menstrual activism and resistance. She currently has two book projects in press, due out in 2018: the first, "Firebrand Feminism," is about radical feminist histories and their links to contemporary problems of sex, gender and justice (University of Washington Press) and "Transforming Contagion," an edited collection about the dangers and subversive potential of contagion (Rutgers University Press).

She is the founder and director of the Feminist Research on Gender and Sexuality Group at ASU, and she also works as a clinical psychologist in private practice where she specializes in sexuality, couples work and trauma recovery.
