Description - Identities by Kwame Anthony Appiah

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.
