Overview

Undoing Gender addresses the regulation of sexuality and gender that takes place in psychology, aesthetics, and social policy. These essays revisit the problem of kinship in light of new challenges to the family form, interrogate the meaning and purposes of the incest taboo, and challenge the ways in which intersexuality and transsexuality are pathologized. The volume also includes a reading of Willa Cather, a speculation on the millennial goals of feminist theory, as well as a cultural analysis of sexual and racial panic in the censorship of the arts.
