  • You Play The Girlby Carina Chocano

    Little, Brown Book Group 2017; US$ 18.99

    We all know who The Girl is. She holds The Hero's hand as he runs through the Pyramids, chasing robots. Or she nags him, or foils him, plays the uptight straight man to his charming loser. She's idealised, degraded, dismissed, objectified and almost always dehumanised. How do we process these insidious portrayals, and how do they shape our sense... more...

  • The Biopolitics of Embryos and Alphabetsby Ruth A. Miller

    Oxford University Press 2017; US$ 19.99

    Biopolitics and posthumanism have been passé theories in the academy for a while now, standing on the unfashionable side of the fault line between biology and liberal thought.

  • Against Marriageby Clare Chambers

    OUP Oxford 2017; US$ 23.99

  • Feminism, Capitalism, and Critiqueby Banu Bargu; Chiara Bottici

    Springer International Publishing 2017; US$ 141.83

    This edited collection examines the relationship between three central terms—capitalism, feminism, and critique—while critically celebrating the work and life of a thinker who has done the most to address this nexus: Nancy Fraser.

  • A Burst of Lightby Audre Lorde; Sonia Sanchez

    Dover Publications 2017; US$ 17.95

    "The self-described black feminist lesbian mother poet used a mixture of prose, theory, poetry, and experience to interrogate oppressions and uplift marginalized communities.
