The female body, with its history as an object of social control, expectation, and manipulation, is central to understanding the gendered construction of shame. Through the study of 20th-century literary texts, The Female Face of Shame explores the nexus of femininity, female sexuality, the female body, and shame. It demonstrates how shame structures relationships and shapes women's identities. Examining works by women authors from around the world, these essays provide an interdisciplinary and transnational perspective on the representations, theories, and powerful articulations of women's shame.

Review:

This collection features well written, carefully researched essays that analyze an impressive range of fictional, autobiographical, theoretical, and (in one case) cinematic texts. It exemplifies feminist scholarship of the highest order and offers a timely intervention. This is a powerful collection with impressive interdisciplinary strengths. (Mary K. DeShazer Wake Forest University)

Written by an impressive group of outstanding scholars, the essays in this book make a compelling case for the important connections between shame and femininity across a diverse set of cultural and national contexts. The Female Face of Shame shows us both the damage shame does and its powerful capacity to generate subjectivities, practices and modes of belonging. Johnson and Moran’s volume will be an extremely valuable resource for scholars working in or around affect studies and women’s and gender studies. (Jonathan Flatley Wayne State University)
