Abstract:

In Bodies That Matter, Judith Butler further develops her distinctive theory of gender by examining the workings of power at the most ""material"" dimensions of sex and sexuality. Deepening the inquiries she began in Gender Trouble, Butler offers an original reformulation of the materiality of bodies, examining how the power of heterosexual hegemony forms the ""matter"" of bodies, sex, and gender. Butler argues that power operates to constrain ""sex"" from the start, delimiting what counts as a viable sex. She offers a clarification of the notion of ""performativity"" introduced in Gender Trou.
