Heterosexuality tends to be taken-for-granted, as something that is 'natural' and 'normal'. This book questions this assumption and demonstrates how much of our understanding of ourselves and the social worlds we inhabit is based upon unquestioned assumptions about the nature of heterosexuality.

About the Author:

Diane Richardson is Senior Lecturer in the Department of Sociological Studies at the University of Sheffield. She is author of Womena and the Aids Crisis (1989), Safer Sex (1990), Women, Motherhood and Childrearing (1993) and co-editor, with Victoria Robinson, of Introducing Women's Studies: Feminist Theory and Practice (1993). In 1994-95 she was a visiting scholar at Harvard University.

Review:

"This book is extremely readable, engaging and thought-provoking, with none of the mystifying jargon or elitist language in which so much current theory is couched. It is a welcome and useful addition to the field." - AWBR "...a very interesting and stimulating collection of essays, written in clear and accessible language." - The Lesbian Review of Books

Book Description OPEN UNIVERSITY PRESS, United Kingdom, 1996. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English. Brand new Book. ".a very interesting and stimulating collection of essays, written in clear and accessible language." - The Lesbian Review of BooksLittle attention has traditionally been given to theorising heterosexuality. Heterosexuality tends to be taken-for-granted, as something that is 'natural' and 'normal'. Theorising Heterosexuality questions this assumption and demonstrates how much of our understanding of ourselves and the social worlds we inhabit is based upon unquestioned assumptions about the nature of heterosexuality. * In what ways does heterosexuality encode and structure everyday life?* How does heterosexuality shape our sense of identity?* What is the nature of heterosexual desire?* What is the relationship between heterosexuality and feminism?In addition to addressing these questions, the contributors to Theorising Heterosexuality provide a critical examination of recent debates about heterosexuality, in particular within postmodern, feminist and Queer theory.Well written in a clear and lively style, this book brings together leading authors in the field, who represent a variety of differing approaches and viewpoints. Heterosexuality is theorised in terms of its institutionalisation within society and culture, as practice and as identity. The result is an impressive and exciting collection, whose insights invite a radical rethinking of many of the concepts we use to theorise social relations.Theorising Heterosexuality will be of interest to a wide range of students in the social sciences and humanities, especially in: sociology, cultural studies, lesbian and gay studies, social psychology and women's studies.
