Overview

Engelhardt's collection spans genres, disciplines, and class lines to challenge simplistic definitions of Appalachia and the women who live there, as well as to create a template for future studies. Many of the volume's dozen essays were first delivered at an annual conference on women in Appalachia held at Ohio U.-Zanesville; the contributors are literary scholars, sociologists, linguists, historians, performance artists, theater historians, women's studies scholars, and activists. Divided into groupings labeled Activism, Class, and Place, the chapters encompass academic writing, journaling, and memoir. Engelhardt teaches American studies and women and gender studies at the U. of Texas at Austin. Annotation ©2004 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
