Eve Kosofsky Sedgwick

As many readers of this blog are likely to know, Eve Kosofsky Sedgwick died a few days ago.  Here’s the obit from the New Yorker:

Eve Kosofsky Sedgwick died in New York yesterday, at the age of fifty-eight, following a long battle with breast cancer. The literary critic, who taught most recently at the CUNY Graduate Center, is best known for her formative work in the field of queer theory (in the books “Between Men” and “Epistemology of the Closet”), including a number of provocative—and often scandalous—readings of classic literary texts.

There’s also a short note in Inside Higher Ed, with links to her wikipedia page.
