Description - Mappings by Susan Stanford Friedman
This text aims to move feminist theory out of the paralyzing debates about us and them, white and other, first and third world and victimizers and victims. It adapts cultural theory from global and transnational studies, anthropology and geography to challenge modes of thought that exaggerate the boundaries of gender, race, ethnicity, sexuality, class and national origin. The author promotes a transnational and heterogeneous feminism, which, she maintains, can replace the proliferation of feminisms based on difference. She argues for a feminist geopolitical literacy that goes beyond fundamentalist identity politics and absolutist post-structuralist theory, and focuses the reader's attention on locations where differnces are negotiated and transformed.
