: This a broad-ranging anthology of critical essays spanning the last ten years, drawn from literature, linguistics, semiotics, history, psychoanalysis and philosophy. Contributing to a dialogue with Anglo-American and French theorists, this collection sets out to contextualize Italian feminist theory within the international debate. The essays illuminate the specific character of Italian feminism as a political and intellectual movement, and draw out comparisons with the more institutionalized nature of women's studies in the United States and Britain. It aims to be of interest to both general and academic readers wishing to explore developments in European feminism.
