Martha Gever is a cultural critic and educator. Gever’s work focuses on queer and gender studies, popular media, photography, video, and new media. She has recently published Entertaining Lesbians: Celebrity, Sexuality, and Self-Invention, where she traces the history of lesbians in popular culture during the twentieth century, from Radclyffe Hall and Greta Garbo to Martina Navratilova and Rosie O’Donnell, to explore the paradoxes inherent in lesbian celebrity. Gever is currently an Assistant Professor of Media and Cultural Studies at Florida Atlantic University and has worked as an adjunct professor at the University of Illinois at Chicago and the School of the Art Institute of Chicago.
