Rethinking Sexuality

Rethinking Sexuality

First Edition

October 2000 | 192 pages | SAGE Publications Ltd
This thoughtful and accessible book provides a critical examination of the central debates attached to conceptualizing sexuality as a site of knowledge and politics. These are explored in chapters on the meaning of heterosexuality, sexual citizenship and the associated notions of sexual rights and obligations, queer theory and its relationship with feminisms, both `new' and `old'. Also included is discussion of responses to the HIV/AIDS epidemic and the implications for understandings of gender and sexuality.
Theorizing Heterosexuality
From Lesbian Nation to Queer Nation
Sexual Politics and Social Change

`New' Feminisms for `Old'?
Citizenship and Sexuality
Extending Citizenship?
Theorizing Sexual Rights
Feminism and the Challenge of AIDS
In(Visible) Women and Dis(Appearing) Men
Sexuality, Identity and Risk

`A bold and imaginative attempt to reorganize and restructure social theory's map of sexuality, Diane Richardson simultaneously contributes to a renewal of feminist theory and to the development of a new field - sexual citizenship. By approaching the question of modern sexuality through queer theory, citizenship and social movements relating to AIDS, she has indeed contributed to re-thinking sexuality. … A balanced but forceful defence of feminist theory' - Bryan S Turner, University of Cambridge
