9780791472217: In-between Bodies: Sexual Difference, Race and Sexuality (Suny Series in Gender Theory)

Residing between culture and nature, lived bodies are not fixed objects nor biological givens. In-Between Bodies examines "the body" in light of recent work in sexual difference theory and considers contributions provided by sexual difference frameworks, as well as their limits. Addressing how bodies reside outside of traditional categorization, Mary K. Bloodsworth-Lugo reexamines issues of sex, gender, and race and maintains that while sexual difference theorists do account for positions that reside between traditional binaries, she points to lived bodies and experiences left unaccounted for. Drawing from theorists of transgendered and racialized identities, for example, this book helps recognize and address various gaps in sexual difference theory while it indicates practical contributions for pedagogy and politics.

Review:

This book contains a number of original analyses from the extension of Irigaray s insights and sexual difference theories to issues of sexualities/sexes to the author s discussion of the erasure of race. Bloodsworth-Lugo s effort to make connections between sexual difference, race, and sexualities-sexes-gender is robust. Nancy Tuana, coeditor of Engendering Rationalities"
