«‘A Community of Disagreement’ is a provocative, original, compelling critique of the institutionalization of feminism in the university from a perspective that remains sympathetic to feminist thought and politics […] As a theoretically sophisticated approach to much-debated questions that have plagued academic feminism and the university more broadly for the past thirty years, the book is refreshing, timely, and persuasive.» (Lynne Huffer, Emory University, Author of ‘Mad for Foucault’)<BR> «Danielle Bouchard boldly interrogates feminism’s ambivalent location within the neoliberal university, urging us to invigorate our postcolonial theorizations of difference and disciplinarity in the context of globalized feminist knowledge production. ‘A Community of Disagreement’ passionately challenges us to seek a responsible future for feminism that lies in the form of a tenacious committed critique, rather than an argument for exceptionalism. The implications of Bouchard’s argument are salient to all scholars committed to interdisciplinary and political academic work.» (Jigna Desai, University of Minnesota)
