About this title
This book will become a critical text in feminist and social theory. It brings together recent sociology of late modernity, particularly sociologies of reflexivity, aesthetics and detraditionalization, with a consideration of transformations of identity, especially transformations of gender and sexual identities. It does so in relation to questions of cultural economy; debates over the role and place of reflexivity in the social sciences; recent controversies over the significance of commodity aesthetics in regard to questions of identity; and debates on the significance of risk for the organization of contemporary sexualities. In so doing it puts forward a distinctive thesis, namely that within late modernity gender and sexuality are being reworked in terms of categories of reflexivity and risk. It shows that this reworking places increasing significance on issues of mobility and identity in late modernity. It therefore outlines the politics of mobility in regard to identity, suggesting that mobility is an important but often neglected source of power in late modernity. Revisions: Gender and Sexuality in Late Modernity will be essential reading for advanced undergraduates, research students and academics working in the fields of feminist theory, social theory, sociology, women's studies and cultural studies.About the Author:
