The fourth edition of the Feminist Theory Reader continues to challenge readers to rethink the complex meanings of difference outside of contemporary Western feminist contexts. This new edition contains a new subsection on intersectionality. New readings turn readers’ attention to current debates about violence against women, sex work, care work, transfeminisms, and postfeminism. The fourth edition also continues to expand the diverse voices of transnational feminist scholars throughout, with particular attention to questions of class. Introductory essays at the beginning of each section bring the readings together, provide historical and intellectual context, and point to critical additional readings. Five core theoretical concepts—gender, difference, women’s experiences, the personal is political, and intersectionality—anchor the anthology’s organizational framework. New to this edition, text boxes in the introductory essays add excerpts from the writings of foundational theorists that help define important theoretical concepts, and content by Dorothy Sue Cobble, Cathy Cohen, Emi Koyama, Na Young Lee, Angela McRobbie, Viviane Namaste, Vrushali Patil, and Jasbir Puar.

Kultur- und literaturwissenschaftliche Theorien sind äußerst vielgestaltig. Doch welche Konzepte sind relevant? Welche Begriffe spielen eine tragende Rolle? Wie haben sich die literaturgeschichtlichen Modelle entwickelt? Welche Autoren prägen die gegenwärtigen Diskurse? Über 760 kompakte Artikel erklären abstrakte Begriffe und komplexe Modelle und vermitteln gut verständliches Grundlagenwissen. Im Mittelpunkt stehen die großen Theorien wie z.B. Dekonstruktion, feministische Literaturtheorie, Konstruktivismus, New Historicism, Mentalitätsgeschichte, postkoloniale Literaturkritik und Poststrukturalismus. Kein bedeutender Theoretiker und kein zentraler Begriff werden außer Acht gelassen.

Social movements have shaped and are shaping modern societies around the globe; this is evident when we look at examples such as the Arab Spring, Spain’s Indignados and the wider Occupy movement. In this volume, experts analyse the ‘classic’ and new social movements from a uniquely global perspective and offer insights in current theoretical discussions on social mobilisation. Chapters are devoted both to the study of continental developments of social movements going back to the nineteenth century and ranging to the present day, and to an emphasis on the transnational dimension of these movements. Interdisciplinary and truly international, this book is an essential text on social movements for historians, political scientists, sociologists, philosophers and social scientists.

Qualitative research has seen a surge of growth during the past decade. This is in large part because positivist approaches have not yielded the kinds of results that had been anticipated, and more researchers are seeking alternative perspectives to understand phenomena. The number of researchers using qualitative approaches continues to grow, yet there are few up-to-date guides to assist thinking broadly about qualitative research as a field of inquiry. Over the decades the range of approaches has increased, which has led to an even greater lack of certainty about how to think about doing qualitative research. In considering key issues while offering practical guidance on how to work within the face of uncertainty, this book will be a valuable resource to this next generation of researchers. New Approaches to Qualitative Research offers: a clear understanding of the range of issues related to researcher stance, the way that researchers position themselves in relation to their subjects, their participants, and their own belief systems, and the way in which they locate themselves across the qualitative paradigm an overview of some of the most cutting-edge qualitative techniques in use today: from the exploration of visual texts to the concept of inquiry to synthesis methods, this section lays out the state of the art in methodology specific information regarding processes of data analysis, synthesis and interpretation that are employed in these various approaches. In this book, the authors take the stance that qualitative research is a broad approach that encompasses and even encourages difference and uncertainty, and here at last they provide a route-map to this uncertain but fruitful line of inquiry. This vital text is ideal for professional researchers and postgraduates in a range of subject areas.

The Oxford Handbook of Feminist Theory provides a rich overview of the analytical frameworks and theoretical concepts that feminist theorists have developed to analyze the known world. Featuring leading feminist theorists from diverse regions of the globe, this collection delves into forty-nine subject areas, demonstrating the complexity of feminist challenges to established knowledge, while also engaging areas of contestation within feminist theory. Demonstrating the interdisciplinary nature of feminist theory, the chapters offer innovative analyses of topics central to social and political science, cultural studies and humanities, discourses associated with medicine and science, and issues in contemporary critical theory that have been transformed through feminist theorization. The handbook identifies limitations of key epistemic assumptions that inform traditional scholarship and shows how theorizing from women's and men's lives has profound effects on the conceptualization of central categories, whether the field of analysis is aesthetics, biology, cultural studies, development, economics, film studies, health, history, literature, politics, religion, science studies, sexualities, violence, or war.

»Quell der Einsamkeit« erzählt die Geschichte von Stephen Gordon, einer Frau aus der britischen Oberschicht, die eigentlich ein Sohn hätte werden sollen. Von Kind an hat Stephen das Gefühl, dass mit ihr etwas nicht stimmt - dass sie anders ist: Sie trägt gern Männerkleidung, begeistert sich für Fuchsjagd und Fechtkunst und verliebt sich von früher Jugend an in Frauen - zunächst in das Hausmädchen Collins, später in die mondäne Angela Crossby, deren eifersüchtigen Ehemann Stephen durch ihre Bewunderung seiner Rosenzucht zu beschwichtigen sucht. Als Krankenwagenfahrerin im Ersten Weltkrieg lernt Stephen schließlich Mary Llewellyn kennen und lieben. Die beiden Frauen gehen in den zwanziger Jahren nach Paris, schaffen sich zusammen ein Heim und schließen Freundschaften, doch ihr gemeinsames Glück ist massivem gesellschaftlichen Druck ausgesetzt ... »Quell der Einsamkeit« ist ein bis heute faszinierender historischer Roman und kann als ein Vorläufer von Leslie Feinbergs »Stone Butch Blues« gelten. Er löste Debatten über Sexualität, Homosexualität und Geschlechterrollen aus, die noch immer andauern.
