Neither women's studies nor lesbian and gay studies offers an adequate theoretical political base for lesbian scholarship. "Lesbian Studies: Setting an Agenda" aims to promote lesbian studies as an academic and political approach to both gender and the erotic and to clarify the damaging influence of heterosexism across a range of disciplines.
Drawing on feminism and Queer theory, Tamsin Wilton argues that "lesbian" is a theoretical position which must be widely available in order to challenge the dominance of the heterosexual perspective. Engaging with theoretical and political debates, the book moves beyond its role of setting an agenda for lesbian studies in to a wider role as resource and catalyst for anyone interested in gender and the erotic.
"Lesbian Studies: Setting an Agenda" will be essential reading for students of lesbian and gay studies, cultural studies and sociology.
