Borderwork: Feminist Engagements with Comparative Literature
Margaret R. Higonnet
Cornell University Press, 1994 - Literary Criticism - 335 pages
The first book to assess the impact of feminist criticism on comparative literature, Borderwork recharts the intellectual and institutional boundaries on that discipline. The seventeen essays collected here, most published for the first time, together call for the contextualization of the study of comparative literature within the areas of discourse, culture, ideology, race, and gender.
