Shame: A Genealogy of Queer Practices in the 19th Century (Taking on the Political)

£45.00

Product description

A radical re-framing of shame, based on 19th-century feminism from the standpoint of queer political theory. Shame proposes a new form of political action that shows how 19th century activists denaturalise conventional beliefs about sexuality and gender, and challenge strong asymmetries of power. For Victorians, shame did not merely generate negative feelings and low self-esteem but also had a great capacity to provoke political activism, leading to strategies for transforming political norms that exclude political outlaws. Explores the theoretical and historical dynamics of shame within feminist theory and activism. Emphasise the creative and positive impact of shame. Fills a glaring absence in political theory by undertaking a genealogy of political interventions that predate the 20th century.
