Item description for Gender And Apocalyptic Desire (Millennialism and Society) (Millennialism and Society) by Brenda Brasher (Editor) Lee Quinby (Editor)...
In a time when struggles over the place of women are paralleled by struggles over Good versus Evil, this volume exposes the often-veiled links between these two systems of meaning. The essays collected here highlight the intertwining desires of gender stability and apocalyptic truth even as they show that these desires are often internally combustible, a clearing out of the old to make way for new forms. Contributors explore both collusion and collisions between feminist and apocalyptic thought, the various ways in which apocalyptic belief functions as bodily discipline and cultural practice, and finally, the means by which some currents of apocalyptic desire can enable women's equality.
