Unsettled Subjects: Restoring Feminist Politics to Poststructuralist Critique (Paperback)Susan Lurie (author)
- We can order this
In her analysis, Lurie traces each author's strategies for revealing and challenging the ways that patriarchal gender ideology profits from what is always plural and contested female subjectivity. Only such an inquiry, Lurie demonstrates, can explain the impasses that have steered poststructuralist feminism away from gender as a category of analysis and can point toward the models necessary for a more complete feminist critique of patriarchal power.

"The critical project of Unsettled Subjects is both necessary and daring. It articulates the postmodern impasse for white feminism that deconstruction's destabilizing of the category `woman' has generated and, through very thorough readings of modern American women writers, demonstrates how this impasse may be overcome."-Lora Romero, Stanford University
