Description - Identity and Difference by Kathryn Woodward

This text outlines the challenge presented by key debates on identity to central questions of gender, sexuality, embodiment, health, "race" and nation. It includes discussion of: the importance of identity and difference in the contemporary world at multiple levels - global, local and personal; the ways in which identities are constructed for and by individuals; notions of the fixity of identity and difference; explanations of identity and difference from essentialist, social constructionist, psychoanalytic, feminist and discursive approaches; and the complexity of contemporary identities through a range of examples including popular discourses of motherhood, ideas of the healthy body and diaspora identities.
