Lesbian Subjects: A Feminist Studies Reader
Indiana University Press, 1996 - Social Science - 273 pages
The growth in cultural studies has brought homosexuality to the center of work on gender and sexuality. The lesbian is now an accepted subject for scrutiny—she exists, but how do we define her history, whom do we include, and when did it begin? Lesbian Subjects includes essays drawn primarily from Feminist Studies from 1980 to 1993 and traces lesbian studies from its beginnings, examining the difficulties of defining a lesbian perspective and a lesbian past—a culture, social milieux, states of mind. The contributors are Susan K. Cahn, Tee A. Corinne, Heather Findlay, Karen V. Hansen, Anne Herrmann, Akasha (Gloria T.) Hull, Elizabeth Meese, Leisa D. Meyer, Lisa Moore, Makeda Silvera, Martha Vicinus, and Elizabeth Wilson.
