Abstract or Description

This work brings together some of the leading writers on feminism to discuss all aspects of how they work. Drawing from a range of different areas such as literature, sociology, film, law, TV and history, they explore how feminist research and theoretical work is done. The methods discussed include textual analysis, ethnography, film history, interviewing, memory and audience responses. By making explicit the processes involved in theorising and researching, they show that what comes to the reader as a coherent piece of work was the product of difficult, often tortuous, activity. Each author analyzes her own method's motivations and strategies and so gives a rounded picture of how the field of feminist cultural theory is currently being shaped.
