Anne McClintock (born 1954) is a writer, feminist scholar and public intellectual who has published widely on issues of sexuality, race, imperialism, and nationalism; popular and visual culture, photography, advertising and cultural theory. Transnational and interdisciplinary in character, her work explores the interrelations of gender, race, and class power within imperial modernity, spanning Victorian and contemporary Britain to contemporary South Africa, Ireland, and the United States. Since 2015, McClintock is the A. Barton Hepburn Professor in the Program in Gender and Sexuality Studies, and also affiliated with the Princeton Environmental Institute and the Department of English at Princeton University.
Previously, McClintock was the Simone de Beauvoir Professor of English and Women’s and Gender Studies at UW–Madison where she taught from 1999 to 2015. Before UW-Madison, she taught at both Columbia University and New York University.
