Contemporary Feminist Theories

Contemporary Feminist Theories Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Feminist theory has grown into a vast field. Feminist writers, thinkers, and activists have produced an often bewildering body of knowledge concerned with difference and diversity, identity and inequality, ethnicity, race, and class, as well as gender. Despite its growing influence, however, no single comprehensive text encompasses the past, present, and future of feminist theory.

Contemporary Feminist Theories was inspired by a dissatisfaction with existing introductions, which often fail to fully track change and capture diversity within feminist thought. The volume draws on the expertise of a range of Western feminists in order to reflect the breadth of feminist theory as well as shifts within it. Each chapter maps the development of feminist thought in a particular area over time, and suggests future directions.

Reflecting the diversity of feminist theory in fields from literature and linguistics to science and politics, this multi-disciplinary map of feminist thinking is an ideal classroom text.

The contributors include Lisa Adkins, Vicki Bertram, Deborah Cameron, Elizabeth Frazer, Caroline Gonda, Penelope Harvey, Maggie Humm, Kadiatu Kanneh, Mary Maynard, Sara Mills, Jane Scoular, Sue Thornham, Sue Vice, and Patricia Waugh.

Synopsis:

Feminist Legal Theory is just over a decade old in the United States and is even younger in most other countries. Here, Francis Olsen presents the best articles from within this burgeoning field. Drawing on literature which is extremely rich and varied, these volumes include articles from a range leading legal scholars and feminists. Two volumes.
