Description
In many fields, the body is the topic generating exciting new research and interdisciplinary inquiry. Feminist theorists, in particular, have focused on the female body as the site where representattions of difference and identity are inscribed. Drawn from a broad range of disciplines, "Writing on the Body" explores the tensions between women's lived bodily experiences and the cultural meanings inscribed on the female body. The volume includes classic and contemporary essays on rape, pornography, eroticism, anorexia, body building, menstruation, and maternity, and challenges racial, class, and sexual categories. Complemented by the editor's introduction, "Writing on the Body" is a comprehensive sourcebook on the major theoretical positions and critical trends surrounding the female body.
