Embodying identities : Culture, differences and social theory Paperback / softback
In the 1970s and 1980s, identities seemed to be 'fixed' through categories of class, 'race', ethnicity, gender, sexualities and religion.
These days we have begun to recognise the diversity, fragmentation and fluidity of identities, but how do we create and shape our own?
The book shapes a new language of social theory that allows people to embody their differences with a sense of dignity and self-worth.
It draws on diverse traditions from Marx, Weber and Durkheim, as well as more recent traditions of critical theory and post-structuralism, and will be of interest to sociology, politics, social work, philosophy and cultural studies students.
