  • Private Selves, Public Identities: Reconsidering Identity Politics.Susan J. Hekman - 2004 - Pennsylvania State University Press.
    In an age when "we are all multiculturalists now," as Nathan Glazer has said, the politics of identity has come to pose new challenges to our liberal polity and the presuppositions on which it is founded. Just what identity means, and what its role in the public sphere is, are questions that are being hotly debated. In this book Susan Hekman aims to bring greater theoretical clarity to the debate by exposing some basic misconceptions—about the constitution of the self that (...)

  • Sex Positive: Feminism, Queer Theory, and the Politics of Transgression.Elisa Glick - 2000 - Feminist Review 64 (1):19-45.
    From the feminist ‘sex wars’ of the 1980s to the queer theory and politics of the 1990s, debates about the politics of sexuality have been at the forefront of contemporary theoretical, social, and political demands. This article seeks to intervene in these debates by challenging the terms through which they have been defined. Investigating the importance of ‘sex positivity’ and transgression as conceptual features of feminist and queer discourses, this essay calls for a new focus on the political and material (...)

  • Dancing on the Möbius Strip: Challenging the Sex War Paradigm.Bernadette Barton - 2002 - Gender and Society 16 (5):585-602.
    The feminist sex wars have been characterized by debates between radical feminists and sex radical feminists about women's experiences of empowerment versus oppression in the sex industry. Based on a qualitative study of the experiences of exotic dancers, this article introduces a new theoretical paradigm to the feminist sex wars that values the contributions of both sex radicals and radical feminists. It articulates a twofold temporal dimension of sex workers' experiences: how women's feelings of pleasure and empowerment gradually decline over (...)

  • Prostitution Policy: Revolutionizing Practice Through a Gendered Perspective.Lenore Kuo - 2002 - Nyu Press.
    Japan’s lightning march across Asia during World War II was swift and brutal. Nation after nation fell to Japanese soldiers. How were the Japanese able to justify their occupation of so many Asian nations? And how did they find supporters in countries they subdued and exploited? Race War! delves into submerged and forgotten history to reveal how European racism and colonialism were deftly exploited by the Japanese to create allies among formerly colonized people of color. Through interviews and original archival (...)

  • Anticlimax a Feminist Perspective on the Sexual Revolution.Sheila Jeffreys - 1990 - Women's Press (Uk).
    The sexual revolution of the 1960s and 1970s is remembered as a time of great freedom for women. But did the sexual revolution have the same goals as the Women's Liberation Movement? Was it truly liberation for women or just another insidious form of oppression? In this provocative book, Shelia Jeffreys argues that sexual freedom sometimes directly opposed actual freedom for women. Anticlimax traces sexual mores and attitudes from the 1950s to the 1990s, exploring the nature of both straight and (...)

  • Identity Poetics: Race, Class, and the Lesbian-Feminist Roots of Queer Theory.Linda Garber - 2001 - Columbia University Press.
    In seeking to bridge what is often a generation gap between lesbian feminists on the essentialist/existential side of the schism and postmodern queer theorists favoring the social construction of lesbian identity, Graber (social sciences, California State U., Fresno) critically overviews the writing of influential poet-activist- theorists Judy Grahn, Pat Parker, Audre Lorde, Adrienne Rich, and Gloria Anzaldúa. A major concern is de-marginalizing working- class/lesbians of color in this debate. The final chapter traces the rise of queer theory circa 1991.

  • Live Sex Acts: Women Performing Erotic Labor.Wendy Chapkis - 1997 - Routledge.
    Drawing on more than fifty interviews in both the US and the Netherlands, Wendy Chapkis captures the wide-ranging experiences of women performing erotic labor and offers a complex, multi-faceted depiction of sex work. Her expansive analytic perspective encompasses both a serious examination of international prostitution policy as well as hands-on accounts of contemporary commercial sexual practices. Scholarly, but never simply academic, this book is explicitly grounded in a concern for how competing political discourses work concretely in the world--to frame policy (...)

  • States of Injury: Power and Freedom in Late Modernity.Wendy Brown - 1995 - Princeton University Press.
    Whether in characterizing Catharine MacKinnon's theory of gender as itself pornographic or in identifying liberalism as unable to make good on its promises, Wendy Brown pursues a central question: how does a sense of woundedness become the basis for a sense of identity? Brown argues that efforts to outlaw hate speech and pornography powerfully legitimize the state: such apparently well-intentioned attempts harm victims further by portraying them as so helpless as to be in continuing need of governmental protection. "Whether one (...)

  • Split Decisions: How and Why to Take a Break From Feminism.Janet Halley - 2008 - Princeton University Press.
    Is it time to take a break from feminism? In this pathbreaking book, Janet Halley reassesses the place of feminism in the law and politics of sexuality. She argues that sexuality involves deeply contested and clashing realities and interests, and that feminism helps us understand only some of them. To see crucial dimensions of sexuality that feminism does not reveal--the interests of gays and lesbians to be sure, but also those of men, and of constituencies and values beyond the realm (...)

As classroom text, Sullivan's work is heady with vibrant debate and slim heuristics; her intellectual clarity is stunning." - Choice A Critical Introduction to Queer Theory explores the ways in which sexuality, subjectivity and sociality have been discursively produced in various historical and cultural contexts. The book begins by putting gay and lesbian sexuality and politics in historical context and demonstrates how and why queer theory emerged in the West in the late (...)
