Mourning Alex Doty

DotyWe were sad to learn of the sudden accidental death of Alex Doty, Indiana University Professor of Communicaton and Culture. Doty was a great friend of the Press. He was a co-editor, with Corey Creekmur, of Out in Culture, and editor of the popular double special issue of Camera Obscura Fabulous! Divas. He also contributed articles to the collections Hop on Pop and Out Takes and the forthcoming book Mad Men, Mad World. He often served as a reader for Duke Press manuscripts, and offered cover blurbs for many of our books as well. Editorial Director Ken Wissoker, who has worked closely with Doty, said on his Facebook page that he was "completely shocked and saddened by the sudden loss of the lovely smart and funny Alex Doty." Our thoughts go out to Doty's family and to all his colleagues and students at this difficult time.
