Identity and Difference by Kathryn Woodward

Book Description

'The book is easy to use and its layout demonstrates some skill in constructing volumes that 'work' as study guides and reference tools. The merit of this book goes well beyond its suitability for course applications. Contemporary ideas on identity provide new meanings for an old concept' - Multilingual and Multicultural In recent years, identity and difference have been the focus of key debates in cultural studies. This broad-ranging book examines the challenge of these debates and outlines their applications to central questions of gender, sexuality, embodiment, health, 'race' and nation. The text renders accessible some of the most exciting and controversial issues in recent cultural studies. It combines theoretical explanation with in-depth discussion of key areas of contested identities, together with activities and selected readings.
