Erotisms analyzes selected representations of women and sexual relations as they influence different aspects of life, including family relations, professional hierarchies, the field of cultural production, and artistic representations. Stylistically and structurally, this work alternates between clusters of fictional essays and their critical supplements. The critical commentaries which are followed by the fictional essays address three interrelated problematics that illustrate some of the ways in which women's sexual objectification is inextricably related to their social, political, and cultural marginalization. These essays creatively introduce students and the general public to gender studies.
