about

Women's and Gender Studies departments and programs are undergoing rapid transformation, creating the need for a comprehensive and accessible introductory textbook that addresses the current state of the field. Introduction to Women's, Gender, and Sexuality Studies: Interdisciplinary andIntersectional Approaches is the first text to reflect the exciting changes taking place in this field. Emphasizing both interdisciplinarity and intersectionality, this innovative mix of anthology and textbook includes key primary historical sources, debates on contemporary issues, and recent workin science, technology, and digital cultures. Readings from a range of genres - including poetry, short stories, op-eds, and feminist magazine articles - complement the scholarly selections and acknowledge the roots of creative and personal expression in the field. While the majority of selections are foundational texts, the book alsointegrates new work from established scholars and emerging voices to expand current debates in the field. The text is enhanced by thorough overviews that begin each section, robust and engaging pedagogy that encourages students to think critically and self-reflexively-and also to take action-as wellas supplemental online resources for instructors.

Editorial Reviews

"This collection is one of the most comprehensive, intersectional, and interdisciplinary introductions to the field of women's, gender, and sexuality studies that I have seen. I like the historical approach, the diversity of readings, the focus on interdisciplinarity and intersectionality, andthe fact that the book delivers on its promise to address the current state of the field. I can't wait for this text to come out so that I can use it and encourage other instructors to adopt it too." --Lynn Comella, University of Nevada, Las Vegas
