Feminism Meets Queer Theory

by Naomi Schor & Elizabeth Weed - £17.99  Indiana University Press (1997)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9780253211187 | ISBN 10: 0253211182

When feminism meets queer theory, no introductions seem necessary. The two share common political interests—a concern for women’s and gay and lesbian rights—and many of the same academic and intellectual roots. And yet, they can also seem like strangers, needing mediation, translation, clarification. This volume focuses on the encounters of feminist and queer theories, on the ways in which basic terms such as “male” and “female,” “man” and “woman,” “black,” “white,” “sex,” “gender,” and “sexuality” change meaning as they move from one body of theory to another. Along with essays by Judith Butler, Evelynn Hammonds, Biddy Martin, Kim Michasiw, Carole-Anne Tyler, and Elizabeth Weed, there are interviews: Judith Butler engages Rosi Braidotti and Gayle Rubin in separate revealing discussions. And there are critical exchanges: Rosi Braidotti and Trevor Hope exchange comments on his reading of her work; and Teresa de Lauretis responds to Elizabeth Grosz’s review of her recent book.

"... innovative and important thinking about the various relations between feminist theory, queer theory, and lesbian theory, as well as the possibility that liberation can be mutual rather than mutually exclusive."
