9780415073561: Sexing the Self: Gendered Positions in Cultural Studies

Faced with the seemingly enormous difficulty of representing `others', many theorists working in Cultural Studies have been turning to themselves as a way of speaking about the personal. In Sexing the Self Elspeth Probyn tackles this question of the sex of the self, an issue of vital importance to feminists and yet neglected by feminist theory until now, to suggest that there are ways of using our gendered selves in order to speak and theorize non-essential but embodied selves. Arguing for `feminisms with attitude', Sexing the Self ranges across a wide range of theoretical strands, drawing upon a body of literature from early Cultural Studies to Anglo-American feminist literary criticism, from `identity debates' to Foucault's `care of the self'.

About the Author:

Elspeth Probyn is Assistant Professor of Sociology at the Universite de Montreal.

Review:

"This is an excellent book, persuasive and a pleasure to read. It performs an exciting turn away from some of the tiring oppositions that regulate debate in cultural studies, while modelling an unusually generous intellectual and political culture. This is a useful and "inspiring work; I think that many students of these issues will find, as I have, their own projects both supported and critically extended by reading this book."
-Meaghan Morris
"Elspeth Probyn has made an important and highly original contribution to the problem of experience in feminism and cultural studies. She offers a way of relocating experience within cultural analysis without falling into the traps of so many contemporary strategies. This is one of those rare books which actually does advance theoretical and critical reflection. It should have a profound impact on some of the central debates in cultural theory and politics."
-Lawrence Grossberg, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign
