Love : A Question for Feminism in the Twenty-First Century Hardback
Edited by Anna G. Jonasdottir, Ann Ferguson
This unique, timely book of original essays sets the stage for a new materialist feminist debate on the analysis, ethics and politics of love.
The contributors raise questions about social power and domination, situating their research in a materialist feminist perspective that investigates love historically, in order to understand changing ideologies, representations and practices.
The essays range from studies of particular representations and examples of love - feminist translation, mass media images and internet love blogs - to feminist theories of love and marriage, to ethical and political theories describing, critiquing or advocating the use of love in groups as a radical force.
They break new ground in bringing together questions of gendered interests in love, temporal dimensions of loving practices and the politics of love in radical transformations of society.
