Changing Subjects : The Making of Feminist Literary Criticism, Hardback Book

Changing Subjects : The Making of Feminist Literary Criticism Hardback

Edited by Gayle Greene, Coppelia Kahn

Part of the Routledge Library Editions: Women, Feminism and Literature series


These twenty autobiographical essays by eminent feminist literary critics explore the process by which women scholars became feminist scholars, articulating the connections between the personal and political in their lives and work.

They describe the experiences that radicalised women within academia and without, as students, professors, scholars, political activists, women.

From these diverse histories a collective history emerges of the development of feminism as an intellectual and social movement, as a heuristic tool, as the redefinition of knowledge and power. This book presents a history of the field through the eyes of those who have created it.

Offering a spectrum of experiences and critical positions that engage with current debates in feminism, it will be valuable to teachers and students of feminist theory, women's studies, and the history of the women's movement.

It will interest female writers and scholars in all disciplines and anyone who cares about feminism and its future.
