9780415808316: Rethinking Women's and Gender Studies

Rethinking Women’s and Gender Studies re-examines the field’s foundational assumptions by identifying and critically analyzing eighteen of its key terms. Each essay investigates a single term (e.g., feminism, interdisciplinarity, intersectionality) by asking how it has come to be understood and mobilized in Women’s and Gender Studies and then explicates the roles it plays in both producing and shutting down possible versions of the field. The goal of the book is to trace and expose critical paradoxes, ironies, and contradictions embedded in the language of Women’s and Gender Studies―from its high theory to its casual conversations―that relies on these key terms. Rethinking Women’s and Gender Studies offers a fresh approach to structuring Feminist Theory, Senior Capstone, and introductory graduate-level courses in Women’s and Gender Studies.

Review:

"This thoughtful new book takes up and interrogates anew a range of terms that have been central to Women’s and Gender Studies, which the authors argue have sometimes been adopted without adequate reflection on their meaning. Contributing authors offer focused meditations on particular concepts―from "foundational assumptions" like "feminism" to more recently contested concepts like "transnational"―with the editors including provocative questions throughout the volume to open up conversation about the possibilities these terms evoke or foreclose. The result is a critical addition to the bookshelf of anyone seriously considering the current state and future course of Women’s and Gender Studies....Blending history, reflection, and analysis, the volume invites and even impels readers to engage with the vocabulary of Women’s and Gender Studies in new and refreshing ways―an activity sure to be of great value to new students and seasoned practitioners alike." - On Campus with Women

"In Rethinking Women’s and Gender Studies, Orr, Braithwaite, and Lichtenstein have overseen the publication of a stylish, informative volume, characterized by a wonderfully simple structure. [...] The result is a fresh and lively work that never feels overly didactic or prescriptive. So much thought has gone into making this an accessible and readable text that even the table of contents is a delight." - Emma L. E. Rees, University of Chester, UK, in Women’s Studies Quarterly

"The anthology [...] offers an up-to-date examination of the central concepts of self-/attribution in Women’s and Gender Studies (WGS) in the context of the current restructuring of universities – such as, methods, pedagogy, community, discipline, and institutionalization." - Jennifer Bühner, querelles-net

"Rethinking Women's and Gender Studies takes the reader beyond an introduction to the major issues--and even beyond the dirty laundry--in the field. [...] [T]he collection serves as a way to navigate through the eclectiv web of scholarship, activism(s), tensions, and debates that collectively we know as women's and gender studies. [...] [T]his kind of tension is necessary for a thought-provoking conversation. I highly recommend Rethinking Women and Gender Studies as a companion to theoretical texts and as a guide that will continue to shape the future of the field." -Glenda Jones, University of Wisconsin-- Stout, Feminist Collections, 2014
