Feminist Activist Ethnography: Counterpoints to Neoliberalism in North America Hardcover - 2013 - 1st Edition

by Christa Craven [Editor]; Dána-Ain Davis [Editor]; Mary K. Anglin [Contributor]; Khiara M. Bridges [Contributor]; Elizabeth Chin [Contributor]; Aimee Cox [Contributor]; Iris López [Contributor]; Michelle Marzullo [Contributor]; S

From the publisher

Writing in the wake of neoliberalism, where human rights and social justice have increasingly been subordinated to proliferating "consumer choices" and ideals of market justice, contributors to this collection argue that feminist ethnographers are in a key position to reassert the central feminist connections between theory, methods, and activism. Together, we suggest avenues for incorporating methodological innovations, collaborative analysis, and collective activism in our scholarly projects. What are the possibilities (and challenges) that exist for feminist ethnography 25 years after initial debates emerged in this field about reflexivity, objectivity, reductive individualism, and the social relevance of activist scholarship? How can feminist ethnography intensify efforts towards social justice in the current political and economic climate? This collection continues a crucial dialog about feminist activist ethnography in the 21st century-at the intersection of engaged feminist research and activism in the service of the organizations, people, communities, and feminist issues we study.
