Talking Visions
Multicultural Feminism in a Transnational Age
Ella Shohat, editor

This multivoiced collection of essays and images presents the perspectives
of activists, scholars, artists, and curators from a broad range of
constituencies. Challenging traditional disciplinary and cultural
boundaries, the book moves beyond any unified feminist historical narrative
to present a "relational" feminism of diverse communities, affiliations,
and practices. The texts/images partake of many genres: reflective essay,
testimonial dialogue, performance piece, digital collage, prose poem, and
photomontage. Forging connections between usually compartmentalized areas
of knowledge and of activism, the volume helps us to envision alternative
epistemologies and imaginative alliances.
