Extrait de la couverture : qqHere, for the first time, is a book that brings women's writings out of exile to rethink anthropology's purpose at the end of the century. . . . As a historical resource, the collection undertakes fresh readings of the work of well-known women anthropologists and also reclaims the writings of women of color for anthropology. As a critical account, it bravely interrogates the politics of authorship. As a creative endeavor, it embraces new Feminist voices of ethnography that challenge prevailing definitions of theory and experimental writing.q... it should be a simple generator of research ideas and practices; on the other, it competes with aquot;methodology, aquot; at times ... With the exception of certain kinds of aquot; popularaquot; arts and celebrity, art, writing, and theory are treated as white racial patrimony; cf. hooks, Yearning; Barbara Christian, aquot;The Race for Theory, aquot; ... in her Women, Art and Power and Other Essays (New York: Harper and Row, [1971] 1992).
