Availability: Ready to download

This anthology introduces students to the modern period's history of key ideas related to sexual difference, gender, race, class, and sexuality. While most introductory Women's Studies textbooks focus on the United States, even if they add multiculturalism to the discussion, this book looks at women in diverse locations around the world and encourages students to think abo This anthology introduces students to the modern period's history of key ideas related to sexual difference, gender, race, class, and sexuality. While most introductory Women's Studies textbooks focus on the United States, even if they add multiculturalism to the discussion, this book looks at women in diverse locations around the world and encourages students to think about gender in a transnational rather than a purely U.S. context. The selections provide students in the U.S. with a way to understand points of view from other locations and cultures, especially crucial in the post-9-11 geopolitical situation. The transnational approach to understanding gender brings Women's Studies into an era of globalization by connecting women's issues in the United States to women's issues elsewhere. The book shows how colonialism and imperialism, as they spread across the world, shaped ideas about gender as much as other modern phenomena. It addresses issues of power and inequality by focusing on historical connections rather than solely on commonalties. The readings are truly interdisciplinary, drawing upon scholarly work in many disciplines and interdisciplinary fields as well as non-scholarly sources. Short essays introduce each of the book's four sections, explaining the concepts and ideas behind the selection of readings.

    I love this book for its utility in teaching an intro class that begins with a transnational perspective. You definitely have to use it strategically for students to get the most out of it though. I supplemented it heavily, didn't approach it in a linear manner, and cherry-picked the best selections. It seemed to work well. I love this book for its utility in teaching an intro class that begins with a transnational perspective.

    The articles in this book are so short and so specifically localized it's impossible to get any sense of cohesion with the material. You come out of it saying, 'What did I just learn? How do these topics relate to one another?' The articles in this book are so short and so specifically localized it's impossible to get any sense of cohesion with the material.

    Taught this in an intro to feminism class, and I found the undergrad students really engaged with the selections.
