Much of this scholarship builds upon Michel Foucault's pioneering work on the history of the body and of sexuality, particularly in his three volume History of Sexuality, Discipline and Punish, and Herculine Barbin. See for example: Sawicki, Disciplining Foucault; Diamond and Quimby, eds., Feminism and Foucault; Ramazanoglu, ed., Up Against Foucault; McKay, Foucault and Feminism; Stanton, ed., Discourses of Sexuality.
