Gender and Love: Interdisciplinary Perspectives is an interdisciplinary publication presenting papers from the 1st Global Conference ‘Gender and Love’ (Mansfield College, Oxford). The selected papers consider gender in relation to various kinds of love with regard, for example, to self, spirit, religion, family, friendship, ethics, nation, globalisation, environment, and so on. How do the interactions of gender and love promote particular performances of gender; conceptions of individual and collective identity; formations of community; notions of the human; understandings of good and evil? These are just some of the questions that occupied this project and eventually this publication.
