Laddas ned direkt. This book is about mapping the future of eighteenth-century women's writing and feminist literary history, in an academic culture that is not shy of declaring their obsolescence. It asks: what can or should unite us as scholars devoted to the recovery and study of women's literary history in an era of big data, on the one hand, and ever more narrowly defined specialization, on the other? Leading scholars from the UK and US answer this question in thought-provoking, cross-disciplinary and often polemical essays.

In this moving memoir about the power of friendship and the resilience of the human spirit, Amy Silverstein tells the story of the extraordinary group of women who supported her as she waited on the precipice for a lifesaving heart transplant. Nearly twenty-six years after receiving her first heart transplant, Amy Silverstein's donor heart plummeted into failure. If she wanted to live, she had to take on the grueling quest for a new heart--immediately. A shot at survival meant uprooting her life and moving across the country to California.
When her friends heard of her plans, there was only one reaction: "I'm there. Creating a calendar spreadsheet, the women--some of them strangers to one another--passed the baton of friendship one to the next and headed straight and strong into the battle to help save Amy's life. Empowered by the kind of empathy that can only come with age, these women, each knowing Amy from different stages of her life, banded together to provide her with something that medicine alone could not. Sleeping on a cot beside her bed, they rubbed her back and feet when the pain was unbearable, adorned her room with death-distracting decorations, and engaged in their "best talks ever.
My Glory Was I Had Such Friends is a tribute to these women and the intense hours they spent together--hours of heightened emotion and self-awareness, where everything was laid bare. Candid and heartrending, this once-in-a-lifetime story of connection is a powerful reminder of the ultimate importance of showing up for those we love. A momentous memoir of childhood and adolescence from one of our finest and most beloved writers, as we've never seen her beforeIn The Lost Landscape, Joyce Carol Oates vividly re-creates the early years of her life in western New York State, powerfully evoking the romance of childhood and the way it colors everything that comes after.
From early memories of her relatives to remembrances of a particularly poignant friendship with a red hen, from her first friendships to her first experiences with death, The Lost Landscape is an arresting account of the ways in which Oates's life and her life as a writer was shaped by early childhood and how her later work was influenced by a hardscrabble rural upbringing. In this exceptionally candid, moving, and richly reflective recounting of her early years, Oates explores the world through the eyes of her younger self and reveals her nascent experiences of wanting to tell stories about the world and the people she meets.
If Alice in Wonderland was the book that changed a young Joyce forever and inspired her to look at life as offering end-less adventures, she describes just as unforgettably the harsh lessons of growing up on a farm. With searing detail and an acutely perceptive eye, Oates renders her memories and emotions with exquisite precision to truly transport the reader to a bygone place and time, to the lost landscape of the writer's past but also to the lost landscapes of our own earliest, and most essential, lives.
Butterfly Politics By Catharine A. Hazard is a poignant, unflinching memoir of the emotional intricacies of growing up with a severely disabled sibling. Margaret Combs shows how her Southern Baptist family coped with the lived reality of autism in an era of ignorance and shame, the s through the s, and shares her own tragedy and anguish of being torn between helping her brother and yearning for her own life. Initially fueled by a wish that her brother had never been born, the author eventually arrives to a deeper place of gratitude for this same brother, whom she loves and who loves her in return.
As Raewyn Connell states in her Foreword, 'this Handbook plunges us straight into some of the most disturbing and important issues of our time. Global injustice and violence; the nature of care and love; new forms of power and resistance; the politics of knowledge and the politics of sexuality; survival on an injured planet - all feature in the book'. Guided by Wendy Harcourt's experience of over 20 years in gender and development processes, this exciting and dynamic collection of essays presents a multifaceted dialogue that connects diverse feminist locations, generations and disciplines.

Edited by W. Scott Howard By W. Her research shows the inner workings of a radical albeit ultimately unsuccessful feminist revolution of culture in the early years of the People's Republic of China As such it offers a brand-new picture of not only the feminist movement but also politics and culture in this most formative period.

It makes a unique and important contribution to our understanding of the feminist movement in China and of the relationship between communism and the pursuit of gender equality.

A Wall Street Journal Bestseller! It was a fight club--but without the fighting and without the men. Every month, the women would huddle in a friend's apartment to share sexist job frustrations and trade tips on how best to tackle them. Once upon a time, you might have called it a consciousness-raising group. But the problems of today's working world are more subtle, less pronounced, harder to identify--and harder to prove--than those of our foremothers. These women weren't just there to vent. They needed battle tactics.
And so the Feminist Fight Club was born. Part manual, part manifesto, Bennett offers a new vocabulary for the sexist archetypes women encounter every day--such as the Manterrupter, who talks over female colleagues in meetings; or the Bropropriator, who appropriates their ideas--as well as the self-sabotaging behavior women sometimes exhibit themselves. With original illustrations and fascinating historical research as well as a straightforward assessment of the gender gap that continues to plague the American workforce, Feminist Fight Club offers practical strategies, stealthy hacks, and much-needed camaraderie for women battling their way through the modern workplace.
Pomerantz and Raby have conducted a superbly balanced mix of interviews and analysis for a post-feminist and neoliberal age to help us understand why the stereotype of the 'smart girl' holds such sway in our culture and how to put girls back on the political and social agenda. Bell, author of Hard to Get: Twenty-Something Women and the Paradox of Sexual Freedom "Pomerantz and Raby urge us to reconsider the 'smart girl' stereotype that pervades popular culture, schools, and common-sense beliefs.
With compelling analysis and engaging writing, the book reveals the challenge of negotiating smartness alongside narrow ideals of popular femininity and post-feminist promises of success. A fine contribution to studies of gender, schooling, and girlhood, Smart Girls vividly depicts the lived experience of educational inequities in a context where these very inequities are widely dismissed as a thing of the past.
This is a satisfying, highly readable, and fascinating book. Who Cooked the Last Supper?
