Overview

How do gender and race become objects of intellectual inquiry and evaluation? In this book Alice Gambrell examines the careers of a group of women intellectuals—Leonora Carrington, Ella Deloria, H.D., Zora Neale Hurston, and Frida Kahlo—whose scholarly rediscovery coincided with the rise of feminist and minority discourse studies in the academy. Gambrell offers new ways of thinking about the relationships between cultural studies, feminism and minority discourse within the ongoing reassessment of Modernism.
