Love and Money: Queers, Class, and Cultural Production (NYU Press) by Prof. Lisa Henderson (communication) is a finalist for the Annual Lambda Literary Awards—fondly known as Lammys—in the LGBT Studies category.

Finalists for the 26th annual Lambda Literary Awards were announced in early March by the Lambda Literary Foundation (LLF) in Los Angeles after reviewing a record 746 submissions (up from 687 last year) from 352 publishers (up from 332 last year). Submissions came from major mainstream publishers and from academic presses, from both long-established and new LGBT publishers, as well as from emerging publish-on-demand technologies.

The Lambda Literary Awards celebrate achievement in lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) writing for books published in 2013. The winners will be announced at a ceremony on June 2, 2014, at The Great Hall at Cooper Union in New York City.

Love and Money argues that we can’t understand contemporary queer cultures without looking through the lens of social class. Resisting old divisions between culture and economy, identity and privilege, left and queer, recognition and redistribution, Love and Money offers supple approaches to capturing class experience and class form in and around queerness.
