9780761963356: What is Feminism?: An Introduction to Feminist Theory

So what is feminism anyway? Is it possible to make sense of the complex and often contradictory debates?

In this concise and accessible introduction to feminist theory, Chris Beasley provides clear explanations of the many types of feminism. She outlines the development of liberal, radical and Marxist//socialist feminism, and reviews the more contemporary influences of psychoanalysis, postmodernism, theories of the body, queer theory and the ongoing significance of race and ethnicity.

What is Feminism? is a clear and up-to-date guide to Western feminist theory for students, their teachers, researchers and anyone else who wants to understand and engage in current feminist debates.

About the Author:

Dr. Chris Beasley is Professor in Politics and Co-Director of the Fay Gale Centre for Research on Gender at the University of Adelaide. Dr Beasley primarily teaches in three areas of Political Studies: social and political theory, gender and sexuality studies, and cultural politics. She has been previously been located in Sociology, Women′s Studies, Aboriginal Studies and Education. Her books include Heterosexuality in Theory and Practice (with Heather Brook and Mary Holmes, Routledge, 2012), Engaging with Carol Bacchi (edited with Angelique Bletsas, University of Adelaide Press, 2012), Gender & Sexuality: Critical Theories, Critical Thinkers (SAGE, 2005), What is Feminism? (Sage, 1999) and Sexual Economyths (Allen & Unwin, 1994).

She is currently writing a book on contemporary popular film titled The Cultural Politics of Popular Film: Power, Culture and Society (with Heather Brook, Manchester UP) and preparing another book, Internet Dating (with Mary Holmes, Routledge). Dr Beasley is also engaged in several research projects, including critical thinking in the first year university experience, embodied ethics and revaluing care, innovations in heterosexuality and hetero-masculinity.

Review:

`Over the last three decades feminist theories and methodologies have become an increasingly complex as well as somewhat fraught terrain where ideas and egos alternately clash productively and destructively. This is an up-to-date and intelligent introduction to a field which remains a vital component of contemporary sociopolitical issues and debates′ - Sneja Gunew, Professor of English and Women’s Studies, University of British Columbia
