  • Nobody's Cuter than Youby Melanie Shankle

    Tyndale House Publishers, Inc. 2015; US$ 15.99

    There is nothing as precious in life as a friend who knows you and loves you in spite of yourself.

  • The Embodied Performance of Genderby Jack Migdalek

    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 125.00

    Norms of embodied behaviour for males and females, as promoted in mainstream Western public arenas of popular culture and the everyday, continue to work, overtly and covertly, as definitive and restrictive barriers to the realm of possibilities of embodied gender expression and appreciation. They serve to disempower and marginalize those not inclined... more...

  • The Ploy of Instinct: Victorian Sciences of Nature and Sexuality in Liberal Governanceby Kathleen Frederickson

    Fordham University Press 2014; US$ 22.99

    It is paradoxical that instinct became a central term for late Victorian sexual sciences as they were elaborated in the medicalized spaces of confession and introspection, given that instinct had long been defined in its opposition to self-conscious thought. The Ploy of Instinct ties this paradox to instinct's deployment in conceptualizing governmentality.... more...
