French Feminism: Contexts and Connotations
Contact Email: rpsingh.lu@gmail.com
The proposed book seeks to examine contemporary French feminist thoughts in general and of Monique Wittig, Luce Irigary, and Helen Cixous in particular in view of their antiĀ¬-essentialist orientation toward linguistics and psychoanalysis. Monique Wittig's fictional work Les Gueilleres, published in 1968 not only reflected a very strong defined lesbian feminist orientation but also developed an anti-essentialist orientation towards language that undermined stable subjected positions. Somewhat later, feminist writers would begin exploring what has become known as ecriture feminine. The proposed book welcomes scholarly papers on different aspects of French Feminism.
