Italian-born author and Distinguished Professor Emerita of the History of Consciousness at the University of California, Santa Cruz. She coined the term "queer theory" although the way in which it is used today differs from what she originally suggested by the term.

She received her doctorate in Modern Languages and Literatures from Bocconi University in Milan before coming to the United States.

Her areas of interest include semiotics, psychoanalysis, film theory, literary theory, feminism, and lesbian and queer studies. She has also written on science fiction. Fluent in English and Italian, she writes in both languages. Additionally, her work has been translated into sixteen other languages.
