Description - Bodies That Matter by Judith Butler
In "Bodies that Matter", Judith Butler further develops her distinctive theory of gender by examining the workings of power at the most "material" dimensions of sex and sexuality. Deepening the inquiries she began in "Gender Trouble", Butler offers an original reformulation of the materiality of bodies, examining how the power of heterosexual hegemony forms the "matter" of bodies, sex and gender. Developing more gender trouble across a variety of philosophical, psychoanalytic and fictional works, "Bodies that Matter" opens new questions in feminism, post-structuralism and queer theory.
