Gender: Nature retraces feminist and queer engagements with biology and science in scholarship, activism, art, and everyday life. The volume’s 25 chapters are organized in 5 categories—disciplines, fields, maps, displays, and transgressions—and discuss the specific questions feminists and woman scientists have asked as well as the themes they have focused on. Such themes include history, medicine and health, literature and science, rural and urban environments, nature in the laboratory and museum, food, and sexuality. 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.
