Donaldson presents new paradigms of interpretation that help to bring the often oppositional stances of First versus Third World and traditional versus postmodern feminism into a more constructive relationship. She situates contemporary theoretical debates about reading, writing, and the politics of identity within the context of historical colonialism--primarily under the English in the nineteenth century.

What People are Saying About This

From the Publisher

Offers welcome attention to the complex situations of and interactions among different kinds of women within colonial discourses. [Donaldson's] work should provoke a fruitful consideration of the claims of multiple experiences of gender and, accordingly, the claims of multiple feminisms. Decolonizing Feminisms will surely interest all of those concerned with the intersection of feminist and postcolonial theories.—Elizabeth Fox-Genovese, author of Feminism Without Illusions: A Critique of Individualism

Poses a crucial question about how individual relations in the pedagogical situation evoked. . . all devolve into relations of oppression, making clear the link between discourse and the strategies of oppression.—Signs

For persons who recognize the complexities of discursive situations and the instability of gender designations in them, this study of feminist 'solidarity within multiplicity' is a must!—Religious Studies Reviews

Contributes to today's theoretical discourse through its careful attention to feminism and difference, situating race and gender within the historical and ideological contexts of film and literature.'Border/Lines
