Feminist Studies: A Guide to Intersectional Theory, Methodology and Writing
2010 (English)Book (Other (popular science, discussion, etc.))
FEMINIST STUDIES is an advanced textbook. It balances cutting edge reflections with introductory overviews. The book addresses scholars and professionals in the field and functions as a guide for students and other newcomers to the area working in-between and inside of existing disciplines. Interpreting Feminist Studies as a postdisciplinary discipline, the book highights current issues in feminist theorizing of gender/sex and debates on epistemologies, methodologies, ethics and academic writing styles. In focus are feminist theories of gender/sex in intersections with other sociocultural categorizations (race, ethnicity, class, sexuality etc.) The genealogies of current theoretial approaches to gender/sex as a doing are also explored as well as feminist theories on intersections of sex and gender, bodily materiality, embodiment and subjectivity. Different feminist stances on epistemology are presented from standpoint, empiricist and poststructuralist feminisms to postconstructionist feminist moves into and beyond postmodern philosophy. Based on the assumption that writing and researching goes hand in hand, the book highlights feminist renegotiations of academic writing styles. FEMINIST STUDIES encourages transversal dialogues across all academic disciplines and across different branches of feminist theorizing giving particular attention to queer, postcolonial, anti-racist, historical materialist and sexual difference feminist stances as well as to critical studies of men.
