Astract Sex investigates the impact of advances in contemporary science and information technology on conceptions of sex.

About the Author:

Luciana Parisi lectures at the University of East London.

Review:

'...Her vision, and it is a vision, is literally a molecular one in which sex is instantiated in any number of biologically, cultutally and technologically define assemblages...Abstract Sex does a good job of developing a productive critique of the anthropomorphic assumptions of much theorising about sex and gender and its technique of magnifying the place of sex and reproduction onto every stratum of nature-culture is a useful reminder of the relatively limited place of human sex across life forms.' (Andrew Goffey)

"I deeply appreciate Parisi's vigorous and unapologetic engagement with scientific theories and evidence."
-Myra J. Hird, Feminist Studies, Vol. 35, Summer 2009
