On the Feminist Philosophy of Gillian Howie : Materialism and Mortality, Hardback Book

On the Feminist Philosophy of Gillian Howie : Materialism and Mortality Hardback

Edited by Daniel (University of Liverpool, UK) Whistler, Victoria (Oxford Brookes University, UK) Browne


Over three decades, Gillian Howie wrote at the forefront of philosophy and critical theory, before her untimely death in 2013.

This interdisciplinary collection uses her writings to explore the productive, yet often resistant, interrelationship between feminism and critical theory, examining the potential of Howie's particular form of materialism.

The contributors also bring to this debate a serious engagement with Howie's late turn towards philosophies of mortality, therapy and 'living with dying'.

The volume considers how differently embodied subjects are positioned within public institutions, discourses and spaces, and the role of philosophy, art, film, photography, and literature, in facing situations such as sexual oppression and life-limiting illness.
