This chapter is a close reading of Foucault's and Butler's theories of sexuality and gender, drawing out the spatialities that lie latent within them to argue that a feminism informed by these theoretical perspectives is fundamentally materialist. It draws on the work of Wright, McClintock, Spivak, Cheah, Stoler, and Chow to argue that gender and sex are interwoven in varied and complex ways with discourses of race in colonial, postcolonial and western settings.

Keywords:   Sexuality, biopower, heteronormativity, gender, materiality, space, discourse, body, race
