"Technologies of Gender builds a bridge between the fashionable orthodoxies of academic theory (Lacan, Foucault, Derrida, et al.) and the frequently-marginalized contributions of feminist theory... In sum, de Lauretis has written a book that should be required reading for every feminist in need of theoretical ammunition-and for every theorist in need of feminist enlightenment." -B. Ruby Rich
"... sets philosophical ideas humming... she has much to say." -Cineaste
"I can think of no other work that pushes the debate on the female subject forward with such passion and intellectual rigor." -SubStance
This book addresses the question of gender in poststructuralist theoretical discourse, postmodern fiction, and women's cinema. It examines the construction of gender both as representation and as self-representation in relation to several kinds of texts and argues that feminism is producing a radical rewriting, as well as a rereading, of the dominant forms of Western culture.
