Contemporary feminist scholarship and activism has done much to reveal, challenge, and Question the many binary constructions at the heart of Western culture: white/nonwhite, universal/particular, theory/practice, global/local and, most notably, masculine/feminine. Feminist criticism has reshaped these conceptions by breaking them apart, disassembling, and reconfiguring these binaries into shifting, intersecting, relational fields of difference. The contributors to this volume look to the future of feminist theory and practice, specifically in terms of their complex relationship with the global and local configurations of postmodernity.In part 1 of Feminist Locations, the current state of feminist theory is discussed in order to assess the possible future directions for an interdependent theory and practice. Parts 2 and 3 address the relationship between the local and the global in current and future feminist theory and practice, with part 2 focused primarily on political issues and part 3 on Questions of the body. Specific essays range across an impressive range of issues, including feminist success versus social backlash, women's rights as human rights, NAFTA, the Yale clerical workers' strike of 1984-85, the intersection of global and local political discourse in India, politics of reproduction, and narratives of women's aging in postmodern culture.DeKoven, Marianne is the author of 'Feminist Locations Global and Local, Theory and Practice', published 2001 under ISBN 9780813529233 and ISBN 0813529239.
