0 Reviews
Entries on Black, post-colonial, Italian and French feminisms attest to the variety of contemporary feminist discourse, and the Glossary as a whole reflects the ways in thich feminism has critiqued, transformed and appropriated concepts across the disciplinary spectrum: from sociology and history to philosophy, literary and cultural studies. Emphasizing Raymond Williams's notion of 'concepts on the move', and adapting Edward Said's concept of 'travelling theory', the complex journeys of terms within a wide range of fields are carefully charted.
