BeschreibungAuthor Susan Lurie argues that during the 1980s much of the well-intentioned work of feminist theory still left patriarchal power unquestioned. Lurie cites three literary feminists--Ellen Glasgow, Zora Neale Hurston, and Elizabeth Bishop--tracing each author's strategies for revealing and challenging the ways that patriarchal gender ideology profits from contested female subjectivity.
PortraitSusan Lurie is Associate Professor of English at Rice University.
Pressestimmen""Unsettled Subjects" will establish Susan Lurie as a central figure within feminist and postcolonialist theory as she intervenes courageously within perhaps the most heated and long-lasting of feminist debates."--Kaja Silverman, University of California, Berkeley
