9780262692618: Talking Visions: Multicultural Feminism in a Transnational Age

This multivoiced collection of essays and images presents the perspectives of activists, scholars, artists, and curators from a broad range of constituencies. Challenging traditional disciplinary and cultural boundaries, the book moves beyond any unified feminist historical narrative to present a "relational" feminism of diverse communities, affiliations, and practices. The texts/images partake of many genres: reflective essay, testimonial dialogue, performance piece, digital collage, prose poem, and photomontage. Forging connections between usually compartmentalized areas of knowledge and of activism, the volume helps us to envision alternative epistemologies and imaginative alliances.Copublished with the New Museum of Contemporary Art.

About the Author:

Ella Shohat is Professor of Women's Studies and Cultural Studies at the City University of New York and author of several books, including (with Robert Stam) the award-winning Unthinking Eurocentrism.

Review:

This wonderfully mind-jostling book will make naively over-confident nationalists (from all global latitudes) quake. It will make the rest of us think--and talk--and look-- and listen radically afresh.

(Cynthia Enloe, Professor of Government, Clark University, and author of Bananas, Beaches and Bases)

Here we see the culmination of almost twenty years of anthologizing multicultural feminism--a political formation that has, since The Bridge Called My Back, routinely begun its work in the thorny, unresolved terrain of previously discrete movements and studies. In Ella Shohat's Talking Visions, we witness the coming of age of a conversation that flourishes in multiple languages of intersectionality and transnationalism. Never before have we seen these challenges also confronted by the vast array of work by women-of-color artists collected in this volume. A resource to students, a gift to scholars, and a model for artists to come.

(Angela Y. Davis, Professor of the History of Consciousness, University of California)

"A bold and beautiful book that crosses cultural, gender, and generic divides to offer new ways of remembering history and imagining community." Elaine H. Kim , Professor of Asian American and Comparative Ethnic Studies, University of California, Berkeley
