Understanding Judith Butler
Using contemporary and topical examples from the media, popular culture, and everyday life, this lively and accessible introduction shows how the issues, concepts, and theories in Judith 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 gives a better understanding not only of Butler's work, but of its applications to modern-day social and cultural practices and contexts.
