Animated by anti-colonial, feminist, women of color and queer movements in different parts of the world, Jacqui Alexander’s scholarship has addressed the centrality of (hetero)sexuality to the project of nation building; the pedagogical importance of teaching for justice; the need for a critical interdisciplinarity; and the sacred dimensions of women’s experience.

Her most recent publication, Pedagogies of the Sacred: Meditations on Feminism, Sexual Politics, Memory and the Sacred, has garnered transnational attention.
