A passion for difference : essays in anthropology and gender by Henrietta L Moore ( Book )
17 editions published between 1994 and 2013 in English and held by 582 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"In this new book Henrietta Moore examines the limitations of the theoretical languages used by anthropologists and others to write about sex, gender, and sexuality. Moore begins by discussing recent feminist debates on the body and the notion of the non-universal human subject. She then considers why anthropologists have contributed relatively little to these debates, suggesting that this reflects the history of anthropology's conceptualization of "persons" or "selves" cross-culturally." "The author also pursues a series of related themes, including the links between gender, identity, and violence; the construction of domestic space and its relationship to bodily practices and the internalization of relations of difference; and the links between the gender of the anthropologist and the writing of anthropology." "By developing a specific anthropological approach to feminist post-structuralist and psychoanalytic theory, Moore demonstrates anthropology's contribution to current debates in feminist theory."--BOOK JACKET

Anthropological theory today by Henrietta L Moore ( Book )
20 editions published between 1999 and 2007 in English and held by 430 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"This book makes a bold statement about the nature and value of anthropological theory at the beginning of the twenty-first century. It repositions anthropology within current social theory and outlines the changing context in which anthropological enquiry takes place. Anthropology is no longer confined to academic debate and is increasingly part of the practice and theory of development agencies, voluntary organizations, political pressure groups international organizations and governments. Anthropological theory has become less and less isolated from the communities studied. Communities are increasingly culturally diverse, and 'other cultures' are no longer in 'other parts' of the world. The essays in this volume develop new ways of theorizing appropriate to these changed circumstances."--BOOK JACKET

Anthropology in theory : issues in epistemology by Henrietta L Moore ( Book )

"The 57 articles collected in Anthropology in Theory: Issues in Epistemology, together with the editors' introduction, provide the most comprehensive selection of readings and incisive overview available of anthropological theory and epistemology over the past century." "Anthropology in Theory identifies crucial conceptual signposts for the continued resurgence of the discipline and new theoretical directions. Moreover, it demonstrates both the vitality and value of anthropological theorizing within the discipline, as well as how such anthropological projects are fundamentally reconfiguring broader debates in the social sciences: debates about society and culture; structure and agency; identities and technologies; subjectivities and translocality; meta-theory, ontology and epistemology; language and meaning; subjectivity and objectivity; and localities and globalities."--Jacket

The Polity reader in gender studies ( Book )
4 editions published between 1994 and 1998 in English and held by 19 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Gender studies has become one of the core fields in the social sciences and humanities. As a result of the struggles of feminists, women are no longer hidden from history or unacknowledged in social research or cultural analysis. Over recent years, again largely because of the influence of feminism, masculinity has also increasingly been made problematic and opened up to scrutiny. Gender is thereby recognised to be central to the analysis of structures of power, the organization of social and cultural institutions, and modes of ideological control in modern societies. This book provides an overview of the domain of gender studies. It covers the major theoretical debates about the nature of female and male identity, as well as offering a variety of analyses of gender in the context of different forms of social and cultural activity. Authors represented in the volume include the following: Seyla Benhabib, Rosi Braidotti, Nancy Chodorow, R. W. Connell, Catherine Hall, Michael Stanworth, Klaus Theweleit, Sylvia Walby and Jeffrey Weeks. The book is organized in such a way as to be accessible to beginning students. Each section in the volume is preceeded by a summary and description of the articles concerned
