Description - Feminist Genealogies, Colonial Legacies, Democratic Futures by M. Jacqui Alexander
This collection of essays charts the various feminist theories and practices that address imperialism, post-colonialism, and the advanced capitalist nation-state. It provides a comparative conception of feminist praxis that differs markedly from the liberal, pluralist, multicultural understanding that shapes the dominant versions of Euro-American feminism. As a whole, the collection poses a challenge to the naturalization of gender based in the experiences, histories and practices of Euro-American women. The contributors present studies of feminist movements that challenge post-cold war capitalist processes of recolonization that further exacerbate racial, heterosexual, class and gender hierarchies. The volume maps the anatomy of feminist movements and organizations, and examines the resources they provide for envisioning feminist democratic practice. Issues of consciousness, agency and identity are crucial in understanding these processes. The essays collected here define new modes of thinking, of organizational self-reflection, of political engagement, and of reimagining the social world.
