Short Bio: Jillian Hernandez studies the autonomous aesthetics and sexualities of Black and Latinx people. Her scholarship crosses the fields of art history, performance, gender, and ethnic studies, and is informed by her work as a community arts educator, curator, and cultural producer. Her book Aesthetics of Excess: The Art and Politics of Black and Latina Embodiment (2020, Duke University Press) traces how the body practices and art making of Black and Latinx women and girls are intertwined, and how they complicate conventional notions of cultural value and sexual respectability. She is an Assistant Professor in the Center for Gender, Sexualities, and Women’s Studies Research at the University of Florida. WGSS Rutgers Alum, PhD '13
