RANCE, Susanna. The proliferation of discourses in gender studies. Estud. filos. práct. hist. ideas [online]. 2007, n.9, pp. 13-22. ISSN 1851-9490.
As teacher of Gender Studies, the author observed a gap between the flourishing of sexual and gender diversity, and the persistence in academic courses of binary, biologically-based models. She graphically mapped different approaches including masculinities, the sociology of sex/gender, and Internet studies. The proliferation of discourses proposed by Foucault and Butler has the potential to subvert the hegemony claimed by any current -such as the history of feminism or Women in Development- as obligatory entry-point to this area of study. From a postmodern perspective, the method opens up the field from Women's Studies to new themes and subjects of Gender Studies.
