Performativity, Parody, and Possibilities: Gender in the Context of Women's Prisons

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

This paper will examine the gender performances of women in prison through the lens of Butler's concept of performativity. Incarcerated women’s gender performances simultaneously, and paradoxically, call into question and reinforce heteronormative gender norms. The regulatory forces at work within the prison context both provide an opportunity for gender subversion and restrict the possibilities for understandings of gender beyond the heteronormative. I will provide a brief overview of Butler's theories of performativity and gender performance, and examine the possibilities for gender subversion within the prison environment.
