Bodily Citations: Religion and Judith Butler (Gender, Theory, and Religion) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In such works as "Gender Trouble" and "Bodies That Matter" Judith Butler broke new ground in understanding the construction and performance of identities. While Butler's writings have been crucial and often controversial in the development of feminist and queer theory, Bodily Citations is the first anthology centered on applying her theories to religion. In this collection scholars in anthropology, biblical studies, theology, ethics, and ritual studies use Butler's work to investigate a variety of topics in biblical, Islamic, Buddhist, and Christian traditions. The authors shed new light on Butler's ideas and highlight their ethical and political import. They also broaden the scope of religious studies as they bring it into conversation with feminist and queer theory. Subjects discussed include the woman's mosque movement in Cairo, the ordination of women in the Catholic Church, the possibility of queer ethics, religious ritual, and biblical constructions of sexuality.

Synopsis:

While Butler's writings have been crucial and often controversial in the development of feminist and queer theory, this is the first anthology where anthropologists, theologians, and biblical scholars apply her theories to religion.
