What People are Saying About This

Angela Y. Davis

Here we see the culmination of almost twenty years of anthologizing multicultural feminism—a political formation that has, since The Bridge Called My Back, routinely begun its work in the thorny, unresolved terrain of previously discrete movements and studies. In Ella Shohat's Talking Visions, we witness the coming of age of a conversation that flourishes in multiple languages of intersectionality and transnationalism. Never before have we seen these challenges also confronted by the vast array of work by women-of-color artists collected in this volume. A resource to students, a gift to scholars, and a model for artists to come.

Cynthia Enloe

This wonderfully mind-jostling book will make naively over-confident nationalists (from all global latitudes) quake. It will make the rest of us think—and talk—and look— and listen radically afresh.

Endorsement

A bold and beautiful book that crosses cultural, gender, and generic divides to offer new ways of remembering history and imagining community.

Elaine H. Kim, Professor of Asian American and Comparative Ethnic Studies, University of California, Berkeley
