This book provides comprehensive insights into the concept of gender in an international context. By focusing on diverse and varied critical approaches, it explores how gender identities are shaped by socio-cultural factors, and provides a map of how gender experiences are understood and represented in the arts and society. Through an analysis of both focal and local experiences of gender within a global context, the contributions to this volume create a continuum in which gender and experience stand at a crossroads within the arts. Moreover, this crossroads intersects with the cultural determinations that some of the contributors explore in a critical way. Consequently, this volume represents a necessary contribution to the new maps of gender that are currently being set for the future. The book will appeal to academic scholars interested in the articulation of gender in traditional discourses, as well as the many deconstructions that have been undertaking in the recent past and the present. In addition, the volume is suitable for use in programmes and modules for undergraduate students of feminist and gender studies, cultural studies, sociology, literature, and popular culture, among other disciplines.
