9780521709293: After Identity: Rethinking Race, Sex, and Gender (Contemporary Political Theory)

Social and political theorists have traced in detail how individuals come to possess gender, sex and racial identities. This book examines the nature of these identities. Georgia Warnke argues that identities, in general, are interpretations and, as such, have more in common with textual understanding than we commonly acknowledge. A racial, sexed or gendered understanding of who we and others are is neither exhaustive of the 'meanings' we can be said to have nor uniquely correct. We are neither always, or only, black or white, men or women or males or females. Rather, all identities have a restricted scope and can lead to injustices and contradictions when they are employed beyond that scope. In concluding her argument, Warnke considers the legal and policy implications that follow for affirmative action, childbearing leave, the position of gays in the military and marriage between same-sex partners.

Book Description:

What do we achieve by identifying ourselves and others in terms of gender, sex and race? Georgia Warnke asks how we understand individuals as, for example, male or female, or black or white, and argues that identities are interpretations and, as such, are perspectival, partial and plural.

About the Author:

Georgia Warnke is Professor of Philosophy and Associate Dean for Arts and Humanities at the University of California, Riverside.
