Beschreibung:

Understanding Judith Butler is not an easy task, but this perfectly judged exploration of all Butler′s works succeeds where many competing texts fail.
"A rather perfect textbook at the right level. It opens up issues of transgender very well and is critical in just the right tone. Much needed in media and cultural studies."

- Angela McRobbie, Goldsmiths



Acknowledged as one of the most influential thinkers of modern times, an understanding of Judith Butler′s work is ever more essential to an understanding of not just the landscape of cultural and critical theory, but of the world around us. Understanding Judith Butler, however, can be perceived as a complex and difficult undertaking.



 It needn′t be. Using contemporary and topical examples from the media, popular culture and everyday life, this lively and accessible introduction shows you how the issues, concepts and theories in Butler′s work function as socio-cultural practices.



Giving due consideration to Butler′s earlier and most recent work, and showing how her ideas on subjectivity, gender, sexuality and language overlap and interrelate, this book will give you a better understanding not only of Butler′s work, but of its applications to modern-day social and cultural practices and contexts.
