"... offer[s] a wealth of information on lesbian and women's history while providing a comprehensive look at a field of scholarship that is certain to continue to grow in influence." --Sojourner: The Women's Forum The lesbian is now an accepted subject for scrutiny--she exists, but how do we define her history, whom do we include, and when did it begin? These essays, primarily drawn from Feminist Studies from 1980 to 1993, trace lesbian studies from its beginnings, examining the difficulties of defining a lesbian perspective and a lesbian past--a culture, social milieux, state of mind.

Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr 2007 im Fachbereich Germanistik - Neuere Deutsche Literatur, Note: 1,0, Johannes Gutenberg-Universitat Mainz, 6 Quellen im Literaturverzeichnis, Sprache: Deutsch, Anmerkungen: Kommentare der Dozentin: -eine ganz hervorragende und sehr kundige Interpretation - trotz sprachlicher Fluchtigkeiten (die auch dem Zeitdruck geschuldet sein durften) 1,0, Abstract: Der Tomboy von Meinecke bietet sowohl ein Archiv der wichtigsten feministischen Veroffentlichungen und Stromungen als auch eine Momentaufnahme der zeitgenossischen Kultur der 90er Jahre.Der Roman ein Multimix-Song aus unzahligen Quellen, in dem die Figuren lediglich als Diskurs-Interpreten agieren: Sie dienen ausschliesslich der Performance auf der Gender Trouble -Buhne, sie sind Typen" ohne eigenen ausgearbeiteten Charakter. Die Tomboy Figuren verkorpern jede fur sich gewisse Typen, die dem von Judith Butler proklamierten Gender Trouble" zugeordnet werden konnen, z.B. Vivian als ambiger Tomboy," Angela als Cross-Dresser" oder Frauke als Butch"-Lesbierin. Keine der Charaktere entspricht vordergrundig einer klassischen, eindeutig zuschreibbaren Geschlechterrolle. Auch ihre gesamten Lebensweisen prasentieren sich als pure Reproduktion der Gender- und Feminismusdiskurse, Handlung wie Personen tragen das Buch nicht, sondern dienen allein dem Transport des Diskurses und seiner Reflexion" (Bassler 137). Somit stellt sich die Frage, ob gelebter Gender Trouble" im Tomboy als personlichkeitsnegierend transportiert wird, d.h. nicht nur in einer Verkunstlichung der eigenen Personlichkeit, sondern auch in einer Minimierung personlicher Beziehungen resultiert. Am Ende steht zur Debatte, ob der von Meinecke integrierte Gender Trouble" in der Textrealitat erfolgreich ist, d.h. das binare heteronormative Geschlechtermodell aufzubrechen schafft, oder vielmehr als kunstlich angeeignete Rollenimitation gewertet werden sollte, die Personlichkeit unterdruckt anstatt sie neu zu kreieren und letzt"

Feminist Studies

A Guide to Intersectional Theory, Methodology and Writing

Author: Nina Lykke

Publisher: Routledge

ISBN: 1136978992

Category: Social Science

Page: 258

In this book, feminist scholar Nina Lykke highlights current issues in feminist theory, epistemology and methodology. Combining introductory overviews with cutting-edge reflections, Lykke focuses on analytical approaches to gendered power differentials intersecting with other processes of social in/exclusion based on race, class, and sexuality. Lykke confronts and contrasts classical stances in feminist epistemology with poststructuralist and postconstructionist feminisms, and also brings bodily materiality into dialogue with theories of the performativity of gender and sex. This thorough and needed analysis of the state of Feminist Studies will be a welcome addition to scholars and students in Gender and Women’s Studies and Sociology.

Sex and Class in Women's History

Essays from Feminist Studies

The essays collected in this volume reflect the upsurge of interest in the research and writing of feminist history in the 1970s/80s and illustrate the developments which have taken place – in the types of questions asked, the methodologies employed, and the scope and sophistication of the analytical approaches which have been adopted. Focusing on women in nineteenth-century Britain and America, this book includes work by scholars in both countries and takes its place in a long history of Anglo-American debate. The collection adopts 'the doubled vision of feminist theory', the view that it is the simultaneous operation of relations of class and of sex/gender that perpetuate both patriarchy and capitalism. This view informs a wide variety of contributions from 'Class and Gender in Victorian England', to 'Servants, Sexual Relations and the Risks of Illegitimacy', 'Free Black Women', 'The Power of Women’s Networks', and 'Socialism, Feminism and Sexual Antagonism in the London Tailoring Trade'. Both the vigour and the urgency of scholarship infused with social aims can be clearly felt in the essays collected here.

Gendering Drugs

Category: Social Science

Page: 232

This book, by bringing together critical pharmaceutical studies and feminist technoscience studies, explores the way drugs produce sexed and/or gendered identities for those who take – or resist – them, and how feminist technoscience studies can contribute a theoretical lens with which to observe sex and gender in the pharmaceuticalization processes. Topics explored in this diverse collection include the use of hormones to delay puberty onset for trans children; HPV vaccination against cervical cancer in Sweden, the UK, Austria and Colombia; Alzheimer’s discourses; and the medication of prostate issues. Ericka Johnson has brought together an innovative and timely collection that demonstrates gender as relevant in studies of pharmaceuticals, and provides multiple examples of methodological and theoretical tools to consider gender while studying drugs.

Contemporary challenges for seeking new knowledge in feminist studies are intimately intertwined with methodological renewal that promotes justice and equality in changing global contexts. Written by some of the leading scholars in their fields, this edited collection focuses on the emergence of writing methodologies in feminist studies and their implications for the study of power and change. The book explores some of the central politics, ideas, and dimensions of power that shape and condition knowledge, at the same time as it elaborates critical, embodied, reflective and situated writing practices. By bringing together a variety of multi/transdisciplinary contributions in a single collection, the anthology offers a timely and intellectually stimulating contribution that deals with how new forms of writing research can contribute to promote fruitful analysis of inequality and power relations related to gender, racialisation, ethnicity, class and heteronormativity and their intersections. It also includes the complex relationship between author, text and audiences. The intended audience is postgraduates, researchers and academics within feminist and intersectionality studies across disciplines in the humanities and social sciences. The book is excellent as literature in feminist studies courses and helpful guidance for teaching writing sessions and workshops.

Indigenous Gender, Sexuality, and Feminist Studies

Critically Sovereign traces the ways in which gender is inextricably a part of Indigenous politics and U.S. and Canadian imperialism and colonialism. The contributors show how gender, sexuality, and feminism work as co-productive forces of Native American and Indigenous sovereignty, self-determination, and epistemology. Several essays use a range of literary and legal texts to analyze the production of colonial space, the biopolitics of “Indianness,” and the collisions and collusions between queer theory and colonialism within Indigenous studies. Others address the U.S. government’s criminalization of traditional forms of Diné marriage and sexuality, the Iñupiat people's changing conceptions of masculinity as they embrace the processes of globalization, Hawai‘i’s same-sex marriage bill, and stories of Indigenous women falling in love with non-human beings such as animals, plants, and stars. Following the politics of gender, sexuality, and feminism across these diverse historical and cultural contexts, the contributors question and reframe the thinking about Indigenous knowledge, nationhood, citizenship, history, identity, belonging, and the possibilities for a decolonial future.

"Disability, like questions of race, gender, and class, is one of the most provocative topics among theorists and philosophers today. This volume, situated at the intersection of feminist theory and disability studies, addresses questions about the nature of embodiment, the meaning of disability, the impact of public policy on those who have been labeled disabled, and how we define the norms of mental and physical ability. The essays here bridge the gap between theory and activism by illuminating structures of power and showing how historical and cultural perceptions of the human body have been informed by and contributed to the oppression of women and disabled people."--Pub. desc.
