Abstract:

Moving beyond traditional notions of gender as a static concept wherein human beings are passively molded into gender-appropriate behavior, 23 scholars instead view it as a negotiated, contested, and interactive process. In showing some of the ways gender is made visible, they explore avenues such as the gender of things that surround us; subtle and invisible processes of inclusion and exclusion from valuation; fusing form and content, practice and product; and how the material culture of gender produces gendered beings.
