Reconfiguring gender with John Dewey: Habit, bodies, and cultural change

Hypatia 15 (1):23-42 (2000)
Abstract
: This paper demonstrates how John Dewey's notion of habit can help us understand gender as a constitutive structure of bodily existence. Bringing Dewey's pragmatism in conjunction with Judith Butler's concept of performativity, I provide an account of how rigid binary configurations of gender might be transformed at the level of both individual habit and cultural construct
