About the Authors
  • 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.

    • First study of how an important group of female African-American writers were made objects of inquiry within the academy
    • Looks at the question of sexual and cultural difference across a range of disciplines within modernism
    • Multidisciplinary and international in scope
