About the Authors
  • Differences That Matter challenges theories of the relationship between feminism and postmodernism that ask "is/should feminism be modern or postmodern?" Pointing out how postmodernism has been allowed to dictate feminist debates, Sara Ahmed argues instead that feminism must itself ask questions of postmodernism; that feminist theorists speak (back) to postmodernism rather than simply speak on (their relationship to) it. This "speaking back" involves a refusal to position postmodernism as a generalizable condition of the world, using close readings of postmodern constructions of rights, ethics, "woman," subjectivity, authorship and film.

    • Innovative approach to relationships between feminism and postmodernism, and postmodernism and modernism
    • Combines theory with analysis of concrete political issues and cultural texts, and autobiography
    • Provides close reading of key theoretical and literary texts
