Harriet Malinowitz is an American academic scholar specializing in lesbian and gay issues in higher education, women's studies, the rhetoric of Zionism and Palestine, and writing theory and pedagogy.

Life and work[edit]

A Professor of English at Long Island University, Malinowitz earned her Ph.D. from New York University.[1]

Notable works by Malinowitz include Textual Orientiations: Lesbian and Gay Students and the Making of Discourse Communities (Heinemann, 1995), an ethnographic study focusing on the community emerging in a college course that examines lesbian and gay experience. Textual Orientations highlights the productive intersections of two academic fields: rhetoric and composition and lesbian and gay studies while providing a pedagogical model that values the "vantage point of the social margin."[2]

Malinowitz is also a writer of lesbian stand-up comedy, most notably for her partner Sara Cytron's shows A Dyke Grows in Brooklyn and Take My Domestic Partner--Please![3]
