Abstract:

"Taking a Stand in a Postfeminist World offers an engaged cultural criticism in a postfeminist context. The authors argue for a cultural criticism that is strategic, not programmatic, and that preserves the multiple commitments, ideas, and positions required of interactions and identifications across lines of cultural, racial, and gender difference. Selecting sites where such interactions are highlighted and under current scrutiny - film, consumer culture, tourism, anthropology, and the academy - the authors theorize and demonstrate the struggles and maneuvers required to "take a stand" on a wide range of issues of significance to the contemporary cultural moment."--Jacket.
