Debating Discourses, Practising Feminisms brings together international debates on the discourses and practices of contemporary feminisms. Discussions range across conflicting analyses of gender and politics at the UN conference at Beijing; nationalism and religious conflict in contemporary India; Re-imaginings of science and subjectivity in anglophone science fiction; and the political and intellectual complexities at stake in the project of lesbian studies in the UK. Contributions from these diverse fields come together to give critical attention to the complex terrain of Feminism in the 1990s.
