Hypertext and the Female Imaginary - Electronic Mediations (Hardback)Jaishree K. Odin (author)
- We can order this
Investigating the work of Trinh T. Minh-ha, Judy Malloy, Shelley Jackson, Stephanie Strickland, and M. D. Coverly, Odin demonstrates how these writers apply hypertextual strategies to subversively convey difference. Through her readings of various transformative hypertext narratives by women writers/artists, she pursues the question of what constitutes empowering descriptions of the world in a technology-mediated culture where the dominant discourse is turning everything into the same.
Using feminist as well as postcolonial perspectives, she explores the embodied state of the human as reflected in critically aware contemporary narratives and examines how these works consider what it means to be human in the twenty-first century.

"Hypertext and the Female Imaginary is a much-needed examination of cultural studies issues as they relate to literary-oriented digital media and are played out in women's works dealing with hypertext. Jaishree K. Odin has written an extremely valuable book." -Dene Grigar, Washington State University, Vancouver
