Abstract

Avec les mots, avec le corps, le genre s’impose. En ouvrant la bouche ou en nous habillant le matin, nous portons les marques du genre. Nos moyens d’expression sont genrés. Nous en jouons et, ce faisant, nous élaborons un imaginaire de la différence sexuelle. Le plus souvent, nous nous contentons d’activer des stéréotypes. Étudier ces marques du genre est donc un vaste chantier, auquel cet ouvrage collectif entend contribuer. Les mots d’abord. La langue continue à véhiculer de redoutables préjugés sexistes. En témoigne la règle apprise à l’école : « Le masculin l’emporte sur le féminin. » Mais l’écriture inclusive aujourd’hui proposée s’insurge contre la prééminence du masculin sur le féminin dans la langue française. Et l’histoire des langues et des œuvres littéraires donne bien des exemples de résistance à ce masculin qui s’impose comme neutre et universel. Le corps ensuite. Des espaces de liberté se sont ouverts, mais les normes traditionnelles n’ont pas disparu. Le corps vêtu continue de dire le genre. À moins de perturber le regard avec un travestissement, des pilosités inattendues ou une gestuelle inhabituelle, s’« attaquer » au genre, à son binarisme obligatoire et hiérarchisé, n’est pas chose facile. Peut-on dépasser le genre ? L’annuler ? Créer du neutre ?

Abstract

In this book Barbara J. Risman uses her gender structure theory to tackle the question about whether today’s young people, Millennials, are pushing forward the gender revolution or backing away from it. In the first part of the book, Risman revises her theoretical argument to differentiate more clearly between culture and material aspects of each level of gender as a social structure. She then uses previous research to explain that today’s young people spend years in a new life stage where they are emerging as adults. The new research presented here offers a typology of how today’s young people wrestle with gender during the years of emerging adulthood. How do they experience gender at the individual level? What are the expectations they face because of their sex? What are their ideological beliefs and organizational constraints based on their gender category? Risman suggests there is great variety within this generation. She identifies four strategies used by young people: true believers in gender difference, innovators who want to push boundaries in feminist directions, straddlers who are simply confused, and rebels who sometimes identify as genderqueer and reject gender categories all together. The final chapter offers a utopian vision that would ease the struggles of all these groups, a fourth wave of feminism that rejects the gender structure itself. Risman envisions a world where the sex ascribed at birth matters has few consequences beyond reproduction.

Abstract

This volume explores the role of gender on both the home and fighting fronts in eastern Europe during World Wars I and II. By using gender as a category of analysis, the authors seek to arrive at a more nuanced understanding of the subjective nature of wartime experience and its representations. While historians have long equated the fighting front with the masculine and the home front with the feminine, the contributors challenge these dichotomies, demonstrating that they are based on culturally embed

Abstract

Gender is one of the most productive, dynamic, and vibrant areas of Africanist research today. But what is the meaning of gender in an African context? Why does gender usually connote women? Why has gender taken hold in Africa when feminism hasn't? Is gender yet another Western construct that has been applied to Africa however ill-suited and riddled with assumptions? Africa After Gender? looks at Africa now that gender has come into play to consider how the continent, its people, and the term itself

Abstract

When couples make the journey through their first year of parenthood they confront the challenges of their new responsibilities with varying degrees of support and a range of personal resources. When Couples Become Parents examines the ways in which divisions based on gender both evolve and are challenged by heterosexual couples from late pregnancy through early parenthood.Following the experiences of forty heterosexual couples in various socio-economic positions, Bonnie Fox traces the intricate interplay of social and material resources in the negotiations that occur between partners, the resulting divisions of paid and unpaid work in their families, and the dynamics in their relationships. Exploring the diverse reactions of these women and men, When Couples Become Parents provides significant insights into the early stages of parenthood, the limitations of nuclear families, and the gender inequalities that often develop with parenthood.

Abstract

"This volume seeks to revisit the Franco-Maghrebian representations of masculinity in the line of the New Men's Studies examining the aesthetical expressions as well as their interconnectedness with the sociocultural realities. In order to emphasize the arts' role to rethink the codes of masculinity related to social, national and cultural identities, it assembles the work of experts from different research fields as Maghrebian Studies, Gender and Queer Studies, Popular culture, Cinema and Media Studies, sociology and anthropology. Their contributions unveil the processes of formation, negotiation and transformation of gendered and sexual norms in the societies at issue here providing an in-depth description of the variety of Maghrebian masculinities."--Publisher's summary.
