Theorizing sexuality by Stevi Jackson ( Book )
1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 39 libraries worldwide
"This book surveys and evaluates the sociological contribution to the study of sexuality. It not only maps major theoretical shifts and debates, but also offers a unique examination of the topic that emphasises the sociality of sexuality. In particular, it considers the institutional, biographical and interactional contexts of our sexual lives as well as the cultural significance and everyday practice of sexuality." "The authors contest not only popular understandings of sexuality as natural, but also psychoanalytic explanations and forms of analysis that privilege the cultural construction of sexuality over its everyday social accomplishment. In particular, they challenge the 'specialness' of sexuality within contemporary culture, arguing that sexuality is better understood as a routine part of everyday social life." "The book confronts the anxieties associated with sexuality in the late modern, western world and engages with wider debates on social transformations in late modernity. As such, it provides both an overview of the field of sexuality as well as setting a new agenda for debating the topic."--Jacket.

Locating Woolf the politics of space and place ( Book )
1 edition published in 2007 in English and held by 18 libraries worldwide
The locations of Virginia Woolf's fictions and essays are rarely neutral backdrops, but spaces whose meanings are produced and reproduced through social activity. Woolf's writings are constantly alive to those meanings and to their contestation, but the nuances are not always immediately apparent. Locating Woolf, a collection of eleven essays by an international range of scholars, is the first book to offer an in-depth treatment of her spatial politics, contributing to emergent debates about modernism and geography. Its innovative readings provide both fresh approaches to well-established texts -- A Room of One's Own, Orlando, Between the Acts -- and new contexts for less familiar essays such as "Thunder at Wembley" and "Evening Over Sussex". Themes considered include gendered spaces, the urban and the rural, the postcolonial, the technological, and the transcultural. The introduction includes a theoretical overview and original readings of Night and Day, Mrs Dalloway, and the London Scene essays.
