Hemmings, Clare (2006) The life and times of academic feminism. In: Davis, Kathy and Evans, Mary, (eds.) The Handbook of Women's and Gender Studies. Sage Publications Ltd, London, UK, pp. 13-34. ISBN 9780761943907
The aim of this handbook, say Davis (Research Institute of History and Culture, Utrecht U., the Netherlands), Evans (women's studies, U. of Kent at Canterbury, UK), and Lorber (emerita, sociology and women's studies, City U. of New York), is to demonstrate the theoretical plurality and diversity of gender and women's studies, as well as the political and international range of the field. To give form to this diversity, the 26 papers are organized into sections dealing with the current state of gender and women's studies, cultural representations and critiques, knowledge, globalization and the state, work and family, intimate relationships and sexualities, embodiment in a technological world, and making change. The contributions primarily consist of reviews of the literature in various subdivisions of the field, but authors also offer thoughts on future directions for research.
