Disciplining Foucault: Feminism, Power, and the Body Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

At the same time she develops constructive critiques of certain tendencies in current feminist analyses that threaten to suppress differences among women. She looks at mothering theory and asks in a geneological vein: When did the idea of the mother as an emotional nurturer emerge? When did the idea of women's status as reproducer prevail? A Foucauldian, she argues, must beware of the normalizing features of mothering theory itself. Does it unwittingly reinforce heterosexist norms?

Synopsis:

Arguing that a Foucauldian feminism is possible, Sawicki rejects the view that the power of the phallocentric is total. Instead, like Foucault, she sees discouse as ambiguous and a source of conflict.
