Books By Author 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, Paperback (July 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.
Materialist Feminism, Paperback (October 1997)» View all books by Rosemary Hennessy
In making 20 years of materialist feminist thought more accessible, this text should contribute to the development of feminism's third wave.
