A generation after the publication of Joan W. Scott's influential essay, "Gender: A Useful Category of Historical Analysis," this volume explores the current uses of the term-and the ongoing influence of Scott's agenda-setting work in history and other disciplines. How has the study of gender, independently or in conjunction with other axes of difference-such as race, class, and sexuality-inflected existing fields of study and created new ones? To what extent has this concept modified or been modified by related paradigms such as women's and queer studies? With what discursive politics does the term engage, and with what effects? In what settings, and through what kinds of operations and transformations, can gender remain a useful category in the 21st century? Leading scholars from history, philosophy, literature, art history, and other fields examine how gender has translated into their own disciplinary perspectives.

MEDIA REVIEWS

The scholarship and the writing here is engaging and imaginative (see in particular Gayle Salamon's paper on transgenderism and Merleau-Ponty), and there is a keen sense of what's at stake in a field that seems to have, in Joan W. Scott's words, only paradoxes to offer.51.2 2014
