'In this volume, the reader will find not only papers from different essentialist, constructivist and culture-based standpoints, but will also note the existence of theoretical and clinical intersections where psychoanalysis borders on closely-related disciplines.' Alcira Mariam Alizade from the Foreword
Studies on Feminity is the second volume in a unique series edited by Alcira Mariam Alizade for the Committee on Women and Psychoanalysis of the International Psychoanalytical Association. Providing a forum for exploration and discussion of diverse issues relating to gender constructs, sexuality, and sexual identity, the series brings together an internationally renowned group of contributors trained in the psychoanalytic tradition.
Studies on Feminity discusses gender roles, femininity and motherhood. The various stages in a woman’s life (adolescence, adulthood and menopause) are all examined.
‘I particularly welcome this series because it will stimulate us to go on thinking about feminine issues, and its international dimension will allow us to share thoughts with authors from all over the world.’
Joyce Mc Dougall
