9780822359708: Gut Feminism (Next Wave: New Directions in Women's Studies)

In Gut Feminism Elizabeth A. Wilson urges feminists to rethink their resistance to biological and pharmaceutical data. Turning her attention to the gut and depression, she asks what conceptual and methodological innovations become possible when feminist theory isn’t so instinctively antibiological. She examines research on anti-depressants, placebos, transference, phantasy, eating disorders and suicidality with two goals in mind: to show how pharmaceutical data can be useful for feminist theory, and to address the necessary role of aggression in feminist politics. Gut Feminism’s provocative challenge to feminist theory is that it would be more powerful if it could attend to biological data and tolerate its own capacity for harm.

About the Author :

Elizabeth A. Wilson is Professor of Women's, Gender, and Sexuality Studies at Emory University and the author of Psychosomatic: Feminism and the Neurological Body, also published by Duke University Press.

Review :

"From organ speech to enteric moods, the gut is minded and the mind gutted by this book. It promises and delivers readings of biochemistry, pharmacology, anatomy, and psychoanalysis as strange matters that are unsettling to biology and feminism alike. Provocative in its diagnosis of the rejection of biology in feminist theory, I expect many readers will both devour this book, and throw it around the room a little." (Hannah Landecker author of Culturing Life: How Cells Became Technologies)

“Theoretically rigorous, critically astute, and absolutely engaging, Gut Feminism is a well-crafted, exquisitely written, and lively intervention into key debates in feminist theory. A major and important book." (Robyn Wiegman, author of Object Lessons)

"'There is still something about biology that remains troublesome for feminist theory,' writes Elizabeth Wilson, in Gut Feminism. This vigorous, rigorous, and riveting book not only asks what biology might do for feminist understandings of affect, illness, mood, and agency; it makes a searingly powerful case for an unashamed embrace of feminist aggression. A wonderful pedagogical experience." (Lauren Berlant, author of Cruel Optimism)

"Liz Wilson rarely disappoints, and her latest offering, Gut Feminism, takes up her long standing project to bring feminism into irreducible and unruly alliance with biology several provocative steps further.... I can only commend Wilson for both the provocation and intellectual rigor of her daring." (Margrit Shildrick Contemporary Women's Writing 2016-02-11)

"Gut Feminism is a valuable read for everyone interested in finding links between biology and socio-constructionist approaches within feminist theory.... Overall, Gut Feminism constitutes a relevant contribution to current feminist theory, not only in deconstructing scientific knowledge, but also in proposing innovative and exciting understandings of the human body and its performative relation to the world." (Melissa Chacón Women's Studies International Forum 2016-03-24)

"[T]imely, persuasive, and engaging.... Gut Feminism makes a valuable contribution to current feminist theory, queer theory, science studies, and neuroscientific humanities literature and will be of interest to scholars of all levels." (Carolyn Laubender Journal of International Women's Studies 2016-01-01)

"[A] captivating study that crosses numerous disciplines in order to press the boundaries of both feminist theory and biology. . . . Gut Feminism is a timely and inventive project that extends the traditional scope and methods of feminist theorizing. . . . Wilson's project is fast-paced and far-reaching, engaging with an impressive breadth of data, theory, and argumentation, not, as Wilson identifies, as an attempt to bring consilience to the issues she touches on, but as a way to trace entanglements and ruptures within neuroscience and critical inquiry."

  (Suze G. Berkhout and Ada Jaarsma Hypatia 2016-09-08)

"Gut Feminism exemplifies what rigorous work in this field can bring to key debates not just within feminist theory, but within contemporary critical theory as a whole, and does so with intellectual boldness and precision." (Elizabeth Stephens Australian Humanities Review 2016-04-01)

"Gut Feminism is less a book about politics than one that makes politics happen. It shocks its readers into taking a stance—like a punch in the gut." (Jean-Thomas Tremblay MAKE Literary Magazine 2016-01-08)

"The work is groundbreaking and bordering on dangerous, as she disputes the antibiological position most prominent in feminist theorising thus far, and instead forges new lines of flight.... Gut Feminism is a powerhouse of a book. Gripping as only this calibre of feminist theory can be." (Adele Pavlidis Australian Feminist Studies 2017-01-19)

"One of the most provocative and talked-about new books in feminist theory, Gut Feminism is as imaginative as it is polemical. Wilson nuances her intervention here in productive ways. She positions herself at the outset as critic of both 'anti-biologism' in feminism and of the enthusiasm that characterizes much of what constitutes the 'turn to neuroscience' in the humanities and social sciences." (Angela Wiley GLQ 2017-06-01)
