Question[edit]

There's a disagreement in number between "signfication" and "are." A typo? "How are the contours of the body clearly marked as the taken-for-granted ground or surface upon which gender signification are inscribed, a mere facticity devoid of value, prior to significance?" (129)


No, I think Butler is talking about the contours themselves. Butler is arguing that the body is a sort of map where the parts of the body (the contours) become inscribed with meaning. 71.224.16.16 (talk) 22:26, 29 November 2011 (UTC)

Further Reading[edit]

Shouldn't there be more books/journals listed under further reading? For the one book that is mentioned, shouldn't there be a more complete reference/bibliographic note? —Preceding unsigned comment added by 146.231.129.51 (talk) 12:48, 11 February 2009 (UTC)
