Indeed, it could be argued that the development of bio-power, the power `to take charge of life' (Foucault 1978: 144), parallels the disappearance of the body as overtly significant to powerful subjectivities. Knowledge of MASCULINITIES AND FEMININITIES AS COMMUNITIES OF PRACTICE 33 others' bodies and the use of this to control them take place in a context of denial of one's own body and the relevance of its experience. Embodied knowledge, that is knowledge through the body is, on the other hand, associated more closely with subordinate groups, such as women, black people and working-class males (Willis 1977; hooks 1982; Hekman 1995).

Nevertheless, the fluidity of boundaries within and between masculinities and femininities both allows us to understand how people can conceive of and experience themselves differently in different situations, and points to the ways in which similar performances can be interpreted differently according to context so that, for example, a young woman committed to playing sports can be understood, and understand herself, as masculine in the context of a multifaculty university but feminine in a specialist physical education college.

Hence, it is not simply a matter of claiming membership of a particular community of masculinity or femininity; one has to be accepted as a legitimate participant by those who are already members. Identity can thus be seen as related to a competent and convincing performance of a particular role. It is defined not just internally by the individual but externally by the group's inclusive or exclusive attitude towards that individual. Second, considering masculinities and femininities as constructed within communities of masculinity and femininity practice treats identity as the negotiated experience of self, as something that is produced in a social context rather than as a given.
