BOOK EXCERPT:

In this important book Judith M. Hughes makes a highly original case for conceptualizing gender identity as potentially multiple. She does so by situating her argument within the history of psychoanalysis.Hughes traces a series of conceptual lineages, each descending from Freud. In the study Helene Deutsch, Karen Horney, and Melanie Klein occupy prominent places. So too do Erik H. Erikson and Robert J. Stoller. Among contemporary theorists Carol Gilligan and Nancy Chodorow are included in Hughes's roster.In each lineage Hughes discerns an evolutionary narrative: Deutsch tells a story of retrogression; Erikson names his epigenesis, and Gilligan continues in that vein; Horney's discussion recalls sexual selection; Stoller's and Chodorow's theorizing brings artificial selection to mind; and finally in Klein's work Hughes sees a story of natural selection and adds to it her own notion of multiple gender identities.

BOOK EXCERPT:

The articles in this book engage with practical issues relating to teaching and research. The way in which gender and education is theorized is currently in a period of profound change, and this presents a major challenge to feminist teachers who want to translate explanations for gender relations into transformative action in the classroom. Several of the authors in this collection consider the possibilities and practicalities of transformative feminist pedagogies, identifying the "pedagogic moments" into which challenge and change can be introduced, without distorting or denying the students' experience. Another section contains articles which present the results of classroom research, dealing with issues of class, gender, "race" and sexuality. We can see from the results of these recent studies that class, "race" and gender continue to position students differently throughout the whole school and the entire curriculum. Research on teacher education reported here indicates that gender differences are produced and reproduced in that context. A final section of the book deals with the ongoing and lively debate on feminist methodology and epistemology, indicating the variety of approaches and positions that are being taken up in this area.

BOOK EXCERPT:

This book seeks to problematize knowledge and practices regarding 'male rape' and its relationship to feminism, examining this issue from a Foucauldian perspective. Feminist constructions of 'male rape' can plausibly be claimed to operate as a 'regime of truth', but one must question whether this is running counter to patriarchy.
