The changing face of feminist discourse as reflected by the career of one of its preeminent scholars "Figures of Resistance" brings together the unpublished lectures and little-seen essays of internationally renowned theorist Teresa de Lauretis, spanning over twenty years of her finest work.

Selected essays include " Sexual Indifference and Lesbian Representation, " " The Lure of the Mannish Lesbian, " " Eccentric Subjects, " " Habit Changes, " " The Intractability of Desire, " and the unpublished article " Figures of Resistance." An introduction from feminist film scholar Patricia White provides an overview of the development of de Lauretis's thought and of feminist theory over past decades.
