Theory in Its Feminist Travels: Conversations in US women’s movements (Indiana, 1994)

uses methods that emerge from research into feminism and writing technologies. It analyzes feminist theory as many objects of knowledge, constructed over time within competing feminist politics and conversations. Conversations are units of political agency in action in theoretical discourse. They may overlap among more than written theorizations — oratory, group production, private oralities, public actions — or they may be reflected in varieties or versions of informal writing or circulating manuscripts. Conversations reflect shifting alliances and the production of new political identities. The book self-consciously develops methodology intended to make conversations possible across feminist political and disciplinary divides.
