Psychoanalysis, Historiography, and Feminist Theory: The Search for Critical Methodby Katherine Kearns
Pub. Date: 10/16/1997
Publisher: Cambridge University Press
In this book Katherine Kearns explores the relationship of history to narrative. She combines psychoanalysis with recent feminist theory to reveal the hidden assumptions behind the construction of any historical narrative. Her alternative approach, one she labels psychohistoriography, rejects the notion that certain historical categories are inalienably given. By introducing insights derived from psychoanalysis and critical theory, Kearns expands our conception of what can legitimately count as historical evidence.
