Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

Feminist Practice and Poststructuralist Theory offers a clear and accessible introduction to poststructuralist theory, focusing on questions of language, subjectivity and power. It examines how we might use poststructuralism to theorize gender, identity and experience in patriarchal societies. Drawing on the work of Saussure, Derrida, Freud, Lacan, Kristeva, Irigaray, Cixous, and Foucault, it argues for a form of feminist poststructuralism that can help bring about social change.

This new edition has been revised and updated and includes an additional final chapter on the recent debate about feminism and postmodernism.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Looking back on this exposition as my introduction to (feminist) poststructuralism, and having now struggled through numerous other variously impenetrable or elucidatory texts on the topic area, from Hekman through Butler, Fine, Fausto-Sterling and Foucault, for example, I'd like to say that Ms Weedon's text is a delightfully easy read. It is also useful, having given me a t'riffic kick-start on what can be a pretty rocky road.
