About

Overview

Part of the Macmillan Interdisciplinary Handbooks series on gender studies, Gender: Matter focuses on matter and its relation to gender. Organized around four parts totaling 28 chapters, the volume maps out feminist engagements with matter and materiality. The volume approaches matter not from a natural sciences perspective but from a humanities and social science perspective, asking what role matter plays in feminist, queer, and other social and political theories. The volume also grapples with how changes to matter, or the biophysical world, affect what sex and gender may mean in the twenty-first century. Chapters are written by eminent scholars, are peer reviewed, include illustrations, and offer bibliographies to encourage further research. The volume concludes with a glossary and a comprehensive index.
