Cultural studies and modern feminism are contemporaries and their short histories have been closely interwoven. Feminist cultural studies is consequently a particularly rich field for study and research. Feminist Cultural Studies is a key reference collection covering a broad spectrum including ethnographic studies, audiences and reading, culture in the making of subjectivity, and popular culture such as film, television, dance, make-up and advertising. Other areas addressed include contemporary theory and method, the uses of the female body as a cultural product, and the inter-relationship of 'race' and ethnicity in the cultural construction of gender. This collection includes seminal essays by well-known writers such as Susan Bordo, Hazel Carby, Sue-Ellen Case, Rita Felski, Jane Gaines, Susan Gubar, Angela McRobbie, Toril Moi, Toni Morrison, Laura Mulvey, Janice Radway, Jacqueline Rose, Gayatry Spivak, Carolyn Steedman, Catherine Stimpson, Elizabeth Wilson and many others.
This authoritative two volume set will be welcomed by students, teachers and researchers as a key reference reader on feminist cultural studies which will improve access to seminal articles, as well as some intriguing and influential papers which have been overlooked in the past.
