Quiet Revolutions: Postcolonial Women's Writings and Structures of Solidarity
Submitted by jmumbey on Wed, 02/03/2010 - 4:22pm
This talk offers a new reading of postcolonial women's writings. The conventional model since the 1980s has been to emphasize issues of silence and invisibility, the desire for voice and narrative space, and self-representation as a form of empowerment and transformation. What is often eclipsed as a result is a valuable political ethic based on coalition and solidarity with oppressed and marginalized figures.
