Editorial Reviews

Review

«‘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)

Format: Paperback
It's rare to have a book and an author take on the discipline of Women's Studies, in all of its messiness and complexities. But Dr. Bouchard honors the field by challenging it head on. We need to read this, and we need to take on her challenges as exciting opportunities to have serious debates about the legacies of race, imperialism, and white privilege in Women's Studies. And I think it would behoove many other fields of study as well, such as Ethnic Studies and GLBT Studies as they no doubt suffer from similar logics. It's not an easy read - that I will admit - but it's worth it, and she's been essential to my own work, for which I am grateful.
