About

Overview

Gender: Sources, Perspectives, and Methodologies serves as a primer to the study of gender, including women's, queer, and men's studies. By employing literature, film, art, history, and other disciplines, the approximately 32 chapters identify areas of critical thought and practice in gender and sexuality studies; provide an overview of central themes, current topics, and seminal debates; and offer resources for further research. Targeting undergraduates as well as the educated lay reader, Gender: Sources, Perspectives, and Methodologies introduces themes of subsequent volumes in the series as well as a selection of additional topics (e.g., new media, music, disability). 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.
