Feminism Meets Queer Theory by Naomi Schor

Book Description

"...innovative and important thinking about the various relations between feminist theory, queer theory, and lesbian theory, as well as the possibility that liberation can be mutual rather than mutually exclusive." -Lambda Book Report When feminism meets queer theory, no introductions seem necessary. The two share common political interests-a concern for women's and gay and lesbian rights-and many of the same academic and intellectual roots. And yet, they can also seem like strangers, needing mediation, translation, clarification. This volume focuses on the encounters of feminist and queer theories, on the ways in which basic terms such as "male" and "female," "man" and "woman," "black," "white," "sex," "gender," and "sexuality" change meaning as they move from one body of theory to another. Along with essays by Judith Butler, Evelynn Hammonds, Biddy Martin, Kim Michasiw, Carole-Anne Tyler, and Elizabeth Weed, there are interviews: Judith Butler engages Rosi Braidotti and Gayle Rubin in separate revealing discussions. And there are critical exchanges: Rosi Braidotti and Trevor Hope exchange comments on his reading of her work; and Teresa de Lauretis responds to Elizabeth Grosz's review of her recent book.

Books By Author Naomi Schor

Indiana by Naomi Schor Indiana, Paperback (June 2008)

Indiana (1831) is an absorbing and vivid romantic novel, set partly in provincial France, partly in Paris, and partly on a tropical island. It tells the story of a beautiful and innocent young woman, married at sixteen to a much older man.

Reading in Detail by Naomi Schor Reading in Detail, Paperback (May 2006)

Who cares about details? We do, but it has not always been so. Secularization, the disciplining of society, the rise of consumerism have brought detail to the fore. This book provides ways of thinking about details and ornament in literature, art and architecture, and uncovering the unspoken but powerful ideologies that attached gender to details.

Engaging with Irigaray by Naomi Schor Engaging with Irigaray, Paperback (September 1994)

The authors of these essays--including Judith Butler, Elizabeth Weed, and Rosi Braidotti--shed new light on the relationship of Irigaray to many of the philosophers she has "romanced," from Aristotle to Deleuze.
