Transcending the sex and gender dichotomy, rethinking sexual difference, transgenerational trauma, the decolonization of gender, non-Western identity politics, trans*/feminist debates, embodiment, and queer trans* psychoanalysis, these specially commissioned essays renew our understanding of conventionally held notions of sexual difference.

Looking at the intersections between psychoanalysis, feminism, and transgender discourses, these essays think beyond the normative, bi-gender, Oedipal, and phallic premises of classical psychoanalysis while offering new perspectives on gender, sexuality, and sexual difference. From Freud to Lacan, Kristeva, and Laplanche, from misogyny to the #MeToo movement, this collection brings a timely corrective that historicizes our moment and opens up creative debate.

Written for professionals, scholars, and students alike, this book will also appeal to psychoanalysts, psychologists, and anyone in the fields of literature, film and media studies, gender studies, cultural studies, and social work who wishes to grapple with the theoretical challenges posed by gender, identity, sexual embodiment, and gender politics.

Reviews and Endorsements

"A broad and important collection of essays on feminist psychoanalysis, bringing together the authoritative major figures in the field with provocative work by emerging scholars and analysts. Proof, if it were needed, of the vitality of feminist psychoanalytic study, which appears more necessary, as well as richer, than ever." - Grace Lavery, University of California, Berkeley.

"One of the fundamental discoveries of psychoanalysis was that sexuality is not simply about intimacy, but is ridden by the social. Social relations are very much at work in sexuality, which is why shifts in social relations often play out on the ground of sexuality, as questions of sexuality and its vicissitudes. Contemporary debates are striking evidence of this connection, and this collection of essays captures, reiterates and reflects on it most impressively." - Alenka Zupančič, Institute of Philosophy at the Slovenian Academy of Sciences and the Arts.
