Materialist Feminism by Rosemary Hennessy

Book Description

During the 1980s, capitalism triumphantly secured its global reach, anti-communist ideologies hammered home socialism's inherent failure, the New Left increasingly moved into the professional middle class--and many of feminism's earlier priorities were marginalized. "Identity politics", often formulated in terms of social reconstructionism or multiculturalism, has increasingly suppressed materialist feminism's systematic perspective, replacing it with discourse analysis or cultural politics. Materialist Feminism: A Reader argues against the retreat to multiculturalism for keeping invisible the material links among the explosion of meaning-making practices in highly industrialized social sectors, the exploitation of women's labor, and the appropriation of women's bodies that continues to undergird the scramble for profits and state power in multinational capitalism.

Materialist Feminism and the Politics of Discourse by Rosemary Hennessy Materialist Feminism and the Politics of Discourse, Hardback (October 2012)

This volume confronts the impasses in materialist feminist work on rethinking 'woman' as a discursively constructed subject. Rosemary Hennessy considers the work of Kristeva, Foucault, Laclau and Mouffe, and argues for a materialist feminist re-articulation of discourse as ideology.

Profit and Pleasure by Rosemary Hennessy Profit and Pleasure, Hardback (August 2000)

The author develops an understanding of sexual identities as they are linked to lived material realities, capitalism in particular. She examines the way these identities have led to new forms of commodification of identity, and the role of sexuality in achieving social transformation.
