GENDER CRITICISM - WHAT ISN'T GENDER
In Redrawing the Boundaries (MLA, 1993)

Noting that gender criticism can be a euphemism for, among other things, gay and lesbian criticism, Sedgwick distinguishes it from feminist, women’s, and men’s studies, at the same time observing that “the charting of a space between something called ‘sex’ and something called ‘gender’ has been one of the most influential and successful undertakings of feminist thought.” Sedgwick gives significant attention to Foulcault’s History of Sexuality, as well as “Post-Foucauldian” work.
