In her classic work Gender Trouble - a book that changed the face of gender studies - Judith Butler presented the idea of "gender performativity"-the notion that we all 'do' gender in some way. In her new collection of essays, Butler clarifies the critical task of "undoing gender" when its terms are produced in the service of regulatory and punitive power. Undoing Gender addresses the regulation of sexuality and gender that takes place in psychology, aesthetics, and social policy. These essays revisit the problem of kinship in light of new challenges to the family form, interrogate the meaning and purposes of the incest taboo, and challenge the ways in which intersexuality and transsexuality are pathologized. The volume also includes a reading of Willa Cather, a speculation on the millennial goals of feminist theory, as well as a cultural analysis of sexual and racial panic in the censorship of the arts.

Undoing Gender deepens issues introduced by Butler's earlier scholarship: the materiality of the body, the meaning and instrument of human agency, the relation between power and the psyche or power and the body, psychic triangulation and the incest taboo, the political limits and conditions of psychoanalysis, and the ramifications of rights discourse for those who are, by definition, unauthorized to make use of those terms. The volume ends with a reflection on the way that philosophy is, and must be, engaged with cultural questions of how power works. Undoing Gender will be essential reading for all serious readers interested in gender and sexuality, and in questions of philosophy, language, and the body.

The essays included here represent some of my most recent work on gender and sexuality focusing on the question of what it might mean to undo restrictively normative conceptions of sexual and gendered life. Lesen Sie die erste Seite

HASH(0xa255c528) von 5 Sternen It's good, but not her best 8. April 2006
Von A. Stilwell - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch
While "Undoing Gender" is one of Judith Butler's most accessible texts (in that one does not need to have a philosophical companion and an OED on hand to read it), I did find many of the essays to not be as well developed as others she has written. Many of the essays seem to be half-completed, lacking some substance. While I do think that "Undoing Gender" is a good start for someone interested in post-structuralism, I would recommend that one really take the time and effort to read some of her more well thought out books like "Bodies That Matter" or "Gender Trouble" -- which might require additional reading of Derrida, Foucault, Freud and Lacan to really get the fullness of the texts.

HASH(0xa255fb04) von 5 Sternen Doing... undoing... 4. April 2006
Von J. Saunders - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch
`Undoing Gender' is certainly a much easier read than 'Gender Trouble' and 'Bodies That Matter'. However, it still presents thoughtful reflections relevant to Butler's earlier work. It's so gloomy to read multiple texts by the same author (especially in the academic field) and find they all explore the same viewpoint- that's why it is really refreshing to read Butler's work in succession to witness the 'redoing' of ideas. Butler's up to date frameworks are especially relevant in the forever changing realm of gender.

However, in reading Butler's work I find it necessary to consult a whole heap of other titles, including work by Freud, Foucault, Lacan. Keep this in mind... it's not a light read! Consider it more a starting point.

HASH(0xa255f060) von 5 Sternen I could understand it! 15. Januar 2005
Von Genderific - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch
This is Butler's most accessible book. It continues where Gender Trouble left off, addressing the regulation of gender and how that affects people. It was great to hear someone finally talking about the people affected by discourse, rather than just creating new words without thinking about their effects. However, Butler didn't follow through with any practical steps besides some jargon about alliances and new strategies.

There's also a good section in which Butler takes on Rosi Braidotti and the entire school of sexual difference theory.

HASH(0xa2561cf0) von 5 Sternen What is a "livable" life? 10. März 2006
Von D. Bond - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch
In "Undoing Gender" Butler engages in a rather provocative discussion of the normative structure of gender and the "livability" of those lives that do not fit neatly into what she sees as a hegemonic, male/female "gender binary." In her discussion she draws heavily on the work of Foucault, though she does not strictly adhere to his discourse theory throughout all of the essays. Though she tends to be redundant, the book is worth reading, particularly if you are interested in what it would be like to "radically" rethink gender.

HASH(0xa2561e94) von 5 Sternen Judith Butler discusses gender through a philosophic lens 21. September 2006
Von W - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
First things first, Judith Butler is scary smart. Her linguist/philosopher credentials can make her a tough read sometimes, but the language she uses here is clear and pure. Undoing Gender provided the first insights into the gendered connections that we all share and how the world understands us through these labels. She connects Foucault to Simone de Beauvoir, Hegel, Freud and beyond. I very much appreciated the depths that Undoing Gender plumbed to connect my experience to everyone else's, and to our common history and struggle. I tend to hightlight and annotate books that I use as reference and this copy is dripping yellow, pink, blue and green.
