Identities by Kwame Anthony Appiah

Book Description

The study of identity crosses all disciplinary borders to address such issues as the multiple interactions of race, class and gender in feminist, lesbian and gay studies, postcolonialism and globalization, and the interrelation of nationalism and ethnicity in ethnic and area studies. The work aims to disrupt the discourse of identity by exploring the formation of identities and problem of subjectivity. Scholars in literary criticism, anthropology, sociology and philosophy explore such topics as "Gypsies" in the Western imagination, the mobilization of the West in Chinese television, the lesbian identity and the woman's gaze in fashion photography, and the regulation of black women's bodies in early 20th-century urban areas. This collection of 20 articles brings together work by Michael Gorra and Judith Butler among others.

Books By Author Kwame Anthony Appiah

Lines of Descent by Kwame Anthony Appiah Lines of Descent, Hardback (February 2014)

W. E. B. Du Bois never felt so at home as when he was a student in Berlin. Germany was the first place white people had treated him as an equal. But anti-Semitism was prevalent, and Du Bois' challenge, says Kwame Anthony Appiah, was to take the best of German intellectual life without its parochialism--to steal the fire without getting burned.
