Lesbian Utopics free pdf Challenging the often unquestioned hegemony of gay studies over lesbian studies, Jagose offers a theory of the lesbian. Drawing upon the work of such theorists as Eve Sedgwick and Luce Irigaray, she articulates a theory of "lesbian" space which symbolically exceeds the boundaries of understanding. Jagose argues that the culturally constructed category of the "lesbian" - the symbolic logic which goes beyond traditional cultural limits and regulations - is also simultaneously and, quite provocatively, also the product of those regimes of power. It is this explosive tension that Jagose emphasizes in her reading of various conceptions of the "lesbian". In examining this construction, Jagose surveys a diverse range of texts (sonnets, essays, and novels) spanning the cultural terrain of Mexico and Australia, the US and France. She concludes with a reading of Cindy Crawford as signifying the emergence of lesbian utopics within pop culture.
