Beyond Gender lucidly reviews how 21st-century feminist theories and practices have moved beyond Butlerian gender studies into a more deeply politicized engagement with heterogeneous intersectional identities and movements. Interdisciplinary in scope, the handbook usefully posits an evolution beyond "second" and "third-wave feminism" into what the editors call a "decolonized queer feminist future." Susan Stanford Friedman, Professor of English and Women's Studies, University of Wisconsin-Madison, USA Although there have been many recent publications on gender theory, there has not yet been a volume with the expansive scope and ambition of Beyond Gender. It provides a thorough advanced introduction to the field as well as an updated and rigorous scholarly overview of contemporary debates in queer, intersectionality, transgender and decolonial feminism. A must read! Sara R. Farris, author of In the Name of Women's Rights. The Rise of Femonationalism, Duke University Press, 2017 How can we theorize gender, sex and sexuality in a post-Butler era? What does intersectional feminist and queer scholarship look like today? What does it mean to queer and decolonize feminist theory and praxis across shifting social, cultural, economic and geo-political contexts and relations? Grappling with these vital and challenging questions, Beyond Gender offers a novel, incisive and generative vision of, and guide to, contemporary feminist and sexuality studies. Carolyn Pedwell is Reader in Cultural Studies at the University of Kent, UK. She is an Editor of Feminist Theory journal and the author of Affective Relations: The Transnational Politics of Empathy (Palgrave, 2014) and Feminism, Culture and Embodied Practice: The Rhetorics of Comparison (Routledge, 2010). Despite so many announcements of the death and demise of feminism and queer theory, they are prodigiously still with us. But in what form, in which guise? The collected volume Beyond Gender offers a valuable contribution to setting the terms of the present-day critique, and directs us towards decolonized feminist and queer futures. Adriana Zaharijevic, University of Belgrade, Serbia Arguing for decolonized and radical queer feminisms; this handbook takes on the ambitious task of moving "beyond gender studies" and destabilizing the concept of 'gender.' In so doing it puts forward a number of epistemological challenges to mainstream feminist and queer scholarship and praxis arguing for closer engagement between queer/sexuality studies and decolonial feminisms. As a volume aimed at advanced study but also based on real life experiences, Beyond Gender opens up new and exciting areas for reflection and debate with important implications for future thought and action across generations. Rhoda Reddock, Professor of Gender, Social Change and Development, The University of the West Indies, St. Augsutine Campus, Trinidad and Tobago This book is an important contribution which emphasises, celebrates, and problematises the plurality of current political, methodological, and theoretical approaches to gender and sexuality studies. The diverse and exciting contributions will challenge what many scholars in this field too often take for granted and, I am certain, provoke lively and fruitful debate Matthew Weait is Professor of Law and Society and Dean of the Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences at the University of Portsmouth, UK
