Cover for STANLEY: Other Sisterhoods: Literary Theory and U.S. Women of Color

Other Sisterhoods

Literary Theory and U.S. Women of Color

Where are the women writers of color? Where are their theoretical voices? The fifteen contributors to Other Sisterhoods: Literary Theory and U.S. Women of Color examine the ways that women writers of color have contributed to the discourse of literary and cultural theory. They focus on the impact of key issues, such as social construction and identity politics, on the works of women writers of color, as well as on the ways these women deal with differences relating to gender, class, race/ethnicity, and sexuality. The book also explores the ways women writers of color have created their own ethnopoetics within the arena of literary and cultural theory, helping to redefine the nature of theory itself.

"A sophisticated resource that will do much to carry us through to the next century. Great work!" -- Alvina E. Quintana, author of Home Girls: Chicana Literary Voices
