about

This interdisciplinary anthology highlights exiled/alienated women in literature, history, and cinema in order to problematize and shed light on the state of alienhood that stems from gendered otherness. Contributors investigate when and how women from diverse backgrounds, national origins, social classes, and ethnicities have been relegated to the margins. Ultimately, this important text explores and confronts what Julia Kristeva deems 'the foreigner within ourselves,' and paves the way for a deeper understanding of the many artificial barriers between individuals in an increasingly more globalized world.

Gesa Zinn is an associate professor of German Studies at the University of Minnesota Duluth. Maureen Tobin Stanley is an associate professor of Foreign Languages and Literatures at the University of Minnesota Duluth.

Editorial Reviews

'Can we envision a world where we embrace otherness? In an increasingly mobile, but fractious world, Exile Through a Gendered Lens adds another link into the history of English, French, German, and Spanish women writers and filmmakers that explore, expose and/or subvert gendered otherness.  It is a welcome and useful text that I will include in my class.' - María Camí-Vela, University of North Carolina Wilmington
