Laura Doyle, University of Massachusetts-Amherst Audacious in scope: these creative pedagogical models foreground negotiations of knowledge. Irreverent in practice: rigorous activism argues and acts boldly for multi-dialogical feminism. Meticulous in its challenge to the academy; delightful in its refusal to conform to genre; each disturbs fundamental sediments in its own way.


Risky, important, impressive. This gathering of women from diverse communities reflecting on their difficult co-teaching and co-thinking about interculturality is indeed a departure from academic norms. Dialectically joining experience and theory, these essays document a new model for transnational pedagogy, and fashion a hard-won vision of intercultural conversation.

The essays fracture systems of action and signification with overlapping allegiances across communities of language, gender, race, religion, and nation. Stephanos Stephanides, University of Cyprus

Scrupulously polemical, with perspectival insight, the texts are hopeful of humanity and its critical-utopian potential to invent new and unprecedented forms of solidarity across dominance and hegemony. This collection is a timely recognition of feminists, by feminists, for feminists, of a borderless and trans-local world on the verge of emergence.
