    Gender studies is an interdisciplinary approach to the study of gender, sexual categories, and identity. As a discipline, gender studies borrows from other theoretical models like psychoanalysis — particularly that of Jacques Lacan — deconstruction, and feminist theory in an attempt to examine the social and cultural constructions of masculinity and femininity as they relate to class, race, ethnicity, and sexuality.

    Like gender studies, queer theory (as explained below) also questions normative definitions of gender and sexuality.



    As approaches to literary texts, gender studies and queer theory tend to emphasize the power of representation and linguistic indeterminacy.
