Gender Studies provides an accessible and interdisciplinary introduction to current debates on gender, exploring the major theorists whose work has produced and inspired feminist analysis. Major contributions to the gender debates such as Freudian theory, queer theory, masculinity theory and materialist feminism are introduced, and their impact is explored in a variety of contexts including the workplace, the home, the body and visual culture. The authors explore the meaning and history of many common terms used in relation to gender and sexuality, thus revealing the complex sexing and gendering practices in our society. By clarifying and explaining the concepts of gender analysis and by demonstrating ways of working with these concepts, the authors involve the readers directly in the reading process. This stimulating and wide-ranging text provides tools with which to think about gender, to understand some of the complex material written about gender, and to locate the practices of gendering in everyday lives. It is essential reading for undergraduate students of women's studies, gender studies, cultural studies, media studies, sociology and English. Book jacket.

In 2011 I'm finishing my Australian Research Council (ARC) funded project on Touch and New Technologies by completing several pieces of work:nbsp; a monograph, provisionally titled Touching Technologies; a special issue of the journal Social Semiotics on Touch; a photo-essay based on my exhibition, The Sense of Touch; an essay on Touch and the Archive; and an extended essay on Ron Mueck's sculpture. nbsp;nbsp;nbsp;nbsp;nbsp; The Social Semiotics issue features work from researchers in a range of fields including education, museology, sound art, experimental psychology, marketing, and cultural studies - and will be an exciting synergistic read! nbsp;nbsp;nbsp; I'm also working on a new ARC-funded project about Australian writer and socialist, Jack Lindsay - and have made some extraordinary archival discoveries!nbsp; I hope to write about these very soon too!
