TL;DR: Berman as discussed by the authors showed that we cannot interpret the international law of the interwar period without understanding it as a site of Modernist cultural construction and contestation -rather than as a mere adjunct to, or reflection of, cultural developments external to it.
Abstract: This chapter begins by helping the reader to grasp the comprehensive nature of Nathaniel Berman's work, and the subtle perspective that he brings to the legal world when it is confronted by the passions to which nationalism and colonialism give rise. In his work, cultural Modernism interacts with the international law of Danzig; the fantasies surrounding Jerusalem with the concrete political and legal projects for that city; internationalist dreams with the institutional programs for Bosnia and Palestine; and the most industrious international bureaucracy with the most creative and audacious legal imagination. Berman makes use of all of the notions in the course of his work on "imperial ambivalences". His goal is to show that we cannot interpret the international law of the interwar period without understanding it as a site of Modernist cultural construction and contestation - rather than as a mere adjunct to, or reflection of, cultural developments external to it. Keywords:colonialism; cultural Modernism; imperial ambivalences; international law; Nathaniel Berman; nationalism

TL;DR: In this article, the authors explore the notions of transgression and parody implicit in recent queer theory, particularly in the work of Judith Butler, and take a long hard look at two current dissident sexual identities, the hypermasculine "gay skinhead" and the hyperfeminine "lipstick lesbian".
Abstract: In this paper we think about the performance of sexual identities in space, and try to explore the notions of transgression and parody implicit in recent queer theory, particularly in the work of Judith Butler. To do this, we take a long hard look at two current dissident sexual identities—the hypermasculine ‘gay skinhead’ and the hyperfeminine ‘lipstick lesbian’. We describe their evolution as sexual‐outlaw styles of the 1990s, and assess the effects of their performance in spaces which are, we argue, actively constructed as heterosexual. Although we are ultimately unsure and unable to agree about what kinds of trouble these identities cause, and for whom, and where, we want to share our unease, our questions, our own troubles.

TL;DR: In this paper, the insights and limitations within geography of Judith Butler's concept of "performativity" are explored, and a close and critical reading of Butler's theory is performed.
Abstract: This article explores the insights and limitations within geography of Judith Butler's concept of 'performativity'. As a processual, non-foundational approach to identity, many feminist and post-structuralist geographers have incorporated performativity into their work on the intersections between gender, sexuality, ethnicity, space and place. Yet few have explicitly undertaken a close and critical reading of Butler's theory. The author argues that performativity ontologically assumes an abstracted subject (i.e. abstracted as a subject position in a given discourse) and thus provides no space for theorizing conscious reflexivity, negotiation or agency in the doing of identity. Butler posits a subject abstracted from personal, lived experience as well as from its historical and geographical embeddedness. Uncritically transcribing this abstracted subject into geography limits how we can conceptualize the linkages between emerging identities, social change and spatially-embedded, intentional human practice. ...

TL;DR: Jill Mathews as mentioned in this paper discusses some of the hard questions between marxism and feminism and argues that marxist is patriarchal at its core and proposes a politics which puts women first.
Abstract: Jill Mathews discusses some of the hard questions between marxism and feminism. She a r gue s that mar x i sm is patriarchal at its core. Marx, she says, analysed the masculine e c o n o m y a n d c a l l e d i t universal . She chal lenges modern concepts of women and work and Illustrates that it is not only housework which is i g n o r e d b y t he l a b o u r movement but most of the work of women that earns income and produces commodities and services for sale. Her solution is a politics which puts women first.
