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.
