  • On Becoming a Teen Momby Mary Patrice Erdmans; Timothy Black

    University of California Press 2015; US$ 29.95

    In 2013, New York City launched a public education campaign with posters of frowning or crying children saying such things as "I?m twice as likely not to graduate high school because you had me as a teen" and "Honestly, Mom, chances are he won?t stay with you." Campaigns like this support a public narrative that portrays teen mothers as threatening... more...

  • Gender and the Writer's Imaginationby Mary Suzanne Schriber

    The University Press of Kentucky 2015; US$ 35.00

    The concept of woman as having a distinctive nature and requiring a separate sphere of activity from that of man was pervasive in the thinking of nineteenth- century Americans. So dominant was this "horizon of expectations" for woman that the imaginations of our finest novelists were often subverted, even as they attempted to expand the possibilities... more...

  • Heteronormativity in Eighteenth-Century Literature and Cultureby Ana de Freitas Boe; Abby Coykendall

    Ashgate Publishing Ltd 2015; US$ 104.95

    Understanding heteronormativity is imperative for understanding the culture of the eighteenth century writ large, as well as the imaginaries of sex and sexuality that it bequeaths to the present. This collection foregrounds British, European, and transatlantic heteronormativities to pose vital, if vexing, questions about the degree of continuity subsisting... more...

  • Globalization, Gender, and Mediaby Tuija Parikka

    Lexington Books 2015; US$ 79.99

  • Sexualityby Katherine Johnson

    Wiley 2015; US$ 22.95

    The contemporary study of sexuality too often finds itself at an impasse, conceptualizing sexuality either psychologically or sociologically: sexologists and psychologists have tended to point to the biological origins of sexuality underpinned by hormones, drives and, most recently, genetics; in contrast, historians and sociologists point to the social... more...

  • Body, Dress, and Identity in Ancient Greeceby Mireille M. Lee

    Cambridge University Press 2015; US$ 79.00

  • Intersectionalityby Vivian M. May

    Taylor and Francis 2015; US$ 39.95

    Pursuing Intersectionality, Unsettling Dominant Imaginaries offers a sustained, interdisciplinary exploration of intersectional ideas, histories, and practices that no other text does.

  • Pluckedby Rebecca M. Herzig

    NYU Press 2015; US$ 26.00

    From the clamshell razors and homemade lye depilatories used in colonial America to the diode lasers and prescription pharmaceuticals available today, Americans have used a staggering array of tools to remove hair deemed unsightly, unnatural, or excessive. This is true especially for women and girls; conservative estimates indicate that 99% of American... more...

  • Own Your Lifeby Sally Clarkson; Ruth Schwenk; Angela Perritt; Sarah Mae

    Tyndale House Publishers, Inc. 2015; US$ 15.99

    Do you ever long for days full of joy and energy—days that bring out the best version of you rather than leave you exhausted? Do you sometimes catch yourself wishing life was more impactful and fulfilling? In a world that’s moving so fast, it’s easy to lose your sense of purpose. So now is the time to make each moment of your ordinary,... more...

  • The Trouble with Marriageby Srimati Basu

    University of California Press 2015; US$ 29.95

    The Trouble with Marriage is part of a new global feminist jurisprudence around marriage and violence that looks to law as strategy rather than solution. In this ethnography of lawyer-free family courts and mediations of rape and domestic violence charges in India, Srimati Basu depicts everyday life in legal sites of marital trouble, reevaluating... more...
