Forthcoming on Indiana University Press this coming summer, in July, 2013, The Female Face of Shame is co-edited by Erica Johnson and Patricia Moran. The book collects essays by different scholars about twentieth-century literature and explores issues of sexuality, gender, and the human body to investigate how the feeling of shame structures, and is structured by, social relations.
