Books By Author Isabelle de Courtivron
Beyond French Feminisms, Paperback (January 2003)
This volume proposes to answer the question: what is new in French feminism at the beginning of the 21st century? The essays reflect the shift from the theoretical and philosophical approaches that characterized feminism in the 1980s to the more social and political questions of 2001.
Significant Others, Paperback (March 1996)» View all books by Isabelle de Courtivron
Biographies of artists and writers have traditionally presented an individual's lone struggle for self-expression. In this book, critics and historians, challenge these assumptions in a series of essays that focus on artist and writer couples who have shared sexual and artistic bonds.
