Precarious Intimacies

Professor Weber’s new book Precarious Intimacies: The Politics of Touch in Contemporary Western European Cinema, co-written with Maria Stehle, was published in August 2020 by Northwestern University Press. In its analyses of recent European films, the book proposes the notion of “precarious intimacies” to navigate a dilemma: how to recognize, affirm, and value love, touch, and care while challenging the racialized and gendered politics in which they are embedded.

Thanks to a grant from the University of Tennessee Knoxville Libraries, the book is also open access, available through Project Muse.
