Overview

Covering leadership in the arts and humanities, this volume explores the notion that leadership is both a discursive practice and a performative identity that is situated in a body that not only thinks, but moves, acts, has emotions and desires, ages, experiences, hurts, and senses. This idea moves leadership beyond the intellectual functions such as visioning, strategizing, and persuading, and the actions that emanate from the intellectual realm, and situates leadership firmly in a corporality that is raced, gendered, cultured, sexual, instinctual, and emotional. It suggests that leadership itself is an embodied text that can be "read" to discover personal and cultural meaning. Each year the International Leadership Association publishes a book that captures the best contemporary thinking about leadership from a diverse range of scholars, practitioners, and educators working in the field of leadership studies. In keeping with the mission of the ILA, the International Leadership Series Building Leadership Bridges connects ways of researching, imagining, and experiencing leadership across cultures, over time, and around the world.
