Description
Summary:Neither women's studies nor lesbian and gay studies have yet been able to offer an adequate theoretical or political framework for lesbians and lesbianism. Yet such a matrix is urgently needed, because the political and social position of lesbians is increasingly complex, especially in the light of the rise of the New Right and the new queer activism. Lesbian Studies: Setting An Agenda establishes such a matrix and provides an academic approach to both gender and the erotic, clarifying the damaging influence of heterosexism and examining lesbian treatment in sociology, feminism, psychology, social policy, cultural studies, film theory and history. In addition to setting an agenda for lesbian studies, this book provides a wide resource and catalyst for anyone interested in gender and the erotic, including students and professionals in gender studies, sociology and cultural studies.
