  • Release Date : 2006
  • Genre: Social Science
  • Pages :
  • ISBN 10 : 0816645264


Sex Objects Book Description :

The declaration that a work of art is “about sex” is often announced to the public as a scandal after which there is nothing else to say about the work or the artist-controversy concludes a conversation when instead it should begin a new one. Moving beyond debates about pornography and censorship, Jennifer Doyle shows us that sex in art is as diverse as sex in everyday life: exciting, ordinary, emotional, traumatic, embarrassing, funny, even profoundly boring. Sex Objects examines the reception and frequent misunderstanding of highly sexualized images, words, and performances. In chapters on the “boring parts” of Moby-Dick, the scandals that dogged the painter Thomas Eakins, the role of women in Andy Warhol's Factory films, “bad sex” and ...

  • Pages :
  • ISBN 10 : 0415918111


From Sex Objects to Sexual Subjects Book Description :

In From Sex Objects to Sexual Subjects, Claudia Moscovici investigates various historical formulations of subjects and subjectivity as expressed in the works of Rousseau, Diderot and Kant in order to discuss several contemporary feminist and philosophical critiques of these theories. By tracing the continuities and ruptures between these eighteenth-century philosophical doctrines and the modern writings of Michel Foucault, Judith Butler, Luce Irigaray and others, Moscovici is able to trace the development of certain central debates that organize both current scholarly work and contemporary social life. Moscovici's reading of these historically disparate claims about subjectivity in conjunction with each other brings together two of the most pressing ...

Female as a Sex Object in Buck s The Good Earth Book Description :

Thesis (M.A.) from the year 2013 in the subject English Language and Literature Studies - Other, course: Humanities (English), language: English, abstract: Females are often viewed solely as de-personalized objects of desire instead of as individuals with complex personalities and desires or plans of their own. They also grow up in a culture with widespread sexual objectification and tend to view themselves as objects of the fulfillment of others' desires. This internalized sexual objectification can be linked to mental health as well. In the novel, patriarchy in general and other females in particular both insist that woman's role is to be the slave of her own sex as well as be a sexual object for males. The Good Earth, by Pearl S. Buck is a story o...
