Georgia Warnke, "After Identity: Rethinking Race, Sex, and Gender"
Publisher: John Benjamins Publishing | ISBN: 0521709296 | edition 2008 | PDF | 267 pages | 1,11 mb
Social and political theorists have traced in detail how individuals come to possess gender, sex and racial identities. This book examines the nature of these identities. Georgia Warnke argues that identities, in general, are interpretations and, as such, have more in common with textual understanding than we commonly acknowledge. A racial, sexed or gendered understanding of who we and others are is neither exhaustive of the 'meanings' we can be said to have nor uniquely correct.
