bells hooks: A Critical Companion

Over twenty years ago, bell hooks began generating scholarship that
helped to make colleges and universities places where ideas and social
commitment can exist alongside each other. This essay collection aims
principally to show how the practical examples manifested in hooks’
work have been widely registered in a range of cultural contexts. The
editors of this collection invite essays that address any aspect of the
many themes and genres that demonstrate hooks’ influence: Self-Help,
Public Intellectualism, Black Feminism, Black People and Love,
Children’s Stories, Pedagogy, Race and Popular Culture, Race and Visual
Art, Black Masculinity, Sexuality, Sociology and Race, Politics and
Race, Economics and Race, and Criminology. Please e-mail abstracts
