Rooms of Our Own by Susan Kamholtz Gubar

Book Description

With a little help from Virginia Woolf, Susan Gubar contemplates startling transformations produced by the women's movement in recent decades. What advances have women made and what still needs to be done? Taking Woolf's classic A Room of One's Own as her guide, Gubar engages these questions by recounting one year in the life of an English professor. A meditation on the teaching of literature and on the state of the humanities today, her chapters also provide a crash course on challenges and changes in feminist intellectual history over the past several decades: the influence of post-structuralism and of critical race, post-colonial, and cultural studies scholarship; the stakes of queer theory and the institutionalization of women's studies; the effects of globalism and bio-engineering on conversations about gender, sex, and sexuality. Yet Rooms of Our Own eschews a scholarly approach. Instead, through narrative criticism it enlists a thoroughly contemporary cast of characters who tell us as much about the comedies and tragedies of campus life today as they do about the sometimes contentious but invariably liberating feminisms of our future.

Madwoman in the Attic by Susan Kamholtz Gubar Madwoman in the Attic, Paperback (September 2000)

In this work of feminist literary criticism the authors explore the works of many major 19th-century women writers. They chart a tangible desire expressed for freedom from the restraints of a confining patriarchal society and trace a distinctive female literary tradition.

Racechanges by Susan Kamholtz Gubar Racechanges, Paperback (June 2000)

This work examines racial impersonations - blackfaces - in modern American film, fiction, poetry, painting, photography, and journalism. Gubar shows how the white popular imagination has evolved through a series of oppositional identities that are dependent on the idea of black others.

No Man's Land by Susan Kamholtz Gubar No Man's Land, Paperback (April 1996)

This text argues that 20th-century women of letters have found themselves on a confusing cultural front and that most, aware of the artifice of gender, have dispatched "missives" recording some form of the "future shock" related with profound changes in the roles and rules governing sexuality.
