Vision in Context by Teresa Brennan
Book DescriptionVision and the gaze are key issues in the analysis of racism, sexism and ethnocentrism. In recent radical theory, generally, and French theory in particular, vision has been seen as a means of control. But this view is often unnuanced. It bypasses questions such as: Why is it that contemporary theories have been so critical of vision, and generous towards listening (in psychoanalysis) and language (in philosophy)? This collection of original essays brings together historical studies and contemporary theoretical perspectives on vision. The historical papers focus in turn on Ancient Greece, medieval theology, the Renaissance, the Enlightenment and the nineteenth century. These historical studies are themselves thoroughly informed by poststructuralist theory. They provide a rigorous background for several new, exciting articles on vision and its bearings for feminism, race, sexual orientation, film and art. This collection is the first of its kind in juxtaposing historical and contemporary

Between Feminism and Psychoanalysis, Hardback (May 2015)
In this landmark collection of original essays, outstanding feminist critics in Britain, France and the United States present new perspectives on feminism and psychoanalysis, opening out deadlocked debates. The discussion ranges widely, with contributions from feminists identified with different, often opposed views on psychoanalytic criticism.
Globalization and Its Terrors, Paperback (December 2002)
In this elegant, lucidly argued account, Teresa Brennan argues that the evidence already exists that globalisation has for years been harming not just the poor of the third world but also its alleged beneficiaries in the affluent west.
Exhausting Modernity, Paperback (September 2000)
Exhausting Modernity is a bold new work on the exhaustion of our resources, both natural and human. Essential reading for political and social theorists, philosophers, economists, and anyone interested in the environment.
