Synopses & Reviews
In this special issue of differences, contributors from very different institutions look at women's studies now. Is it a field still on the cutting edge of theory and knowledge or has it lost its edge because of internal conflicts and major changes in the organization of the university? Can the future of women's studies be read in debates about identity politics or predictions about the death of feminism? Or has it earned a lasting place in the curriculum? And is that a desirable development? Contributors range from senior scholars who have helped shape women's studies to students who are now doing their work in the field.
