UPDATE: Rhizomes: Feminisms' Others (3/15/07; journal issue)

Saturday, January 20, 2007 - 1:25am
Carol Siegel

Special Issue: Rhizomes 14: "Feminism's Others"

As with Rhizomes 7, Theory's Others, this special issue will provide a
space for theorists whose work falls outside the usual academic
boundaries, but here the focus will be on feminist thought. In that
feminism fundamentally aims to correct misconceptions about women in
order to bring about social and cultural gender equality, feminists must
represent -- and circulate representations -- of women as a group, which
would be impossible without making some general statements about women.
