Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Doing Gender in Media, Art and Culture is an introductory text for students specialising in gender studies. The truly interdisciplinary and intergenerational approach bridges the gap between humanities and the social sciences, and it showcases the academic and social context in which gender studies has evolved. Complex contemporary phenomena such as globalisation, neo-liberalism and 'fundamentalism' are addressed that stir up new questions relevant to the study of culture. This vibrant and wide-ranging collection of essays is essential reading for anyone in need of an accessible but sophisticated guide to the very latest issues and concepts within gender studies.

'Doing Gender in Media, Art, and Culture' is an indispensable introduction to third wave feminism and contemporary gender studies. It is international in scope, multidisciplinary in method, and transmedial in coverage. It shows how far feminist theory has come since Simone de Beauvoir's Second Sex and marks out clearly how much still needs to be done.'........Hayden White, Professor of Historical Studies, Emeritus, University of California, and Professor of Comparative Literature, Stanford University, US

Book News Annotation:

The editors (both of the Department of Media and Cultural Studies, Utrecht U., the Netherlands) present a textbook intended for use by humanities students specializing in gender studies. Each of the volume's 16 chapters review key debates in contemporary gender studies by first focusing on a micro-narrative of a particular female figure and then building upon the narrative to survey the literature dealing with the cultural and media issues raised by the micro-narrative. Topics include the history of feminism, feminist views on biology, feminist standpoint theory, the ethics of representation, postcolonial critique, queer studies, women's bodies in feminist theology, the rise of Mary Magdalene in feminist art theory, feminism and photography, feminist theater studies, feminist film studies, gendered computer culture, and the construction of masculinity in literary criticism.
