The first book to assess the impact of feminist criticism on comparative literature, Borderwork recharts the intellectual and institutional boundaries on that discipline. The seventeen essays collected here, most published for the first time, together call for the contextualization of the study of comparative literature within the areas of discourse, culture, ideology, race, and gender. Contributors: Bella Brodzki, VeVe A. Clark, Chris Cullens, Greta Gaard, Sabine Goelz, Sarah Webster Goodwin, Margaret R. Higonnet, Marianne Hirsch, Susan Sniader Lanser, Francoise Lionnet, Fedwa Malti-Douglas, Lore Metzger, Nancy K. Miller, Obioma Nnaemakea, Rajeswari Sunder Rajan, Anca Vlasopolos.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"Disciplinary borders and the recontextualization of fields are central to Borderwork's project to bring feminist critical perspectives to bear on the field of comparative literature. The new feminist comparative literature articulated here has moved closer to its disciplinary younger cousin, cultural studies."

-- Judith Kegan Gardiner * Signs *
