Description - A Companion to Gender Studies by Philomena Essed

A Companion to Gender Studies presents a unified and comprehensive vision of its field, and its new directions. It demonstrates in action the rich interplay between gender and other markers of social position and (dis)privilege, such as race, class, ethnicity, and nationality. The contributions are heterogeneous, ranging from essay statements, even provocations, to state-of-the-art overviews. Leading experts in the field cover all the significant ideas of concern to Gender Studies, including the engagements and entanglements with Women's Studies and Masculinity Studies. The essays benefit from the fruits of decades of earlier work by feminist and race critical scholars to understand, analyze, and challenge the distinct ways in which life is gendered. Organized thematically and written in a lucid and lively fashion, each chapter gives insightful consideration to the differing views on its topic, and also clarifies each contributor's own position. This is a Companion for readers, teachers, and students across the world. Students of feminist and gender theory - as well as scientists, social scientists, humanists, theorists, and cultural analysts of these subjects - will find this an enriching and exciting volume of original scholarship.
