Transnational Borderlands in Women's Global Networks investigates the implications of transnational feminist methodologies at multiple levels: collective actions, theory, pedagogy, discursive, and visual productions. The esteemed contributors gathered in this volume address a substantial gap in the field of transnational feminisms; namely, the absence of a voice that links social and theoretical outcomes to the politics of representation in literature, visual art, discourses of rights and citizenships, and pedagogy.

Editorial Reviews

“Coming mostly from literary perspectives, the authors navigate familiar ground with new instruments and show us new angles. The writing alone makes for an exciting reading of the issues, bringing what is easily obscured in the social sciences into full presence here. I found this to be an exceptional book.”--Saskia Sassen, Robert S. Lynn Professor of Sociology, Columbia University and author of Territory, Authority, Rights “This book is indispensable reading for anyone concerned with freedom under the effects of globalization. Each chapter provides a different optic for recognizing the dimensions of transnational feminism. What is revealed is a particular ‘borderlands’ methodology that makes liberation a possibility. This book takes us through and beyond theories of coloniality and decoloniality by recognizing women's roles in constructing the borderlands theories and methods necessary for enlivening the heart of coalitional emancipatory politics.”— Chela Sandoval, Associate Professor of Chicana and Chicano Studies, University of California, Santa Barbara “Eloquently addresses the critical intersection between gender, transnationalism, and globalization. Rigorous research, thoughtful planning, and provocative intellectual analyses went into each of the essays in this timely book. Written in a language accessible enough for first-year college students but also sufficiently theoretical to interest advanced scholars, Transnational Borderlands in Women's Global Networks is a vital contribution to the field of gender and women’s studies because of its insightful attention to issues of race, class, sexuality, and colonization as they apply to the lives of women.”--Guisela Latorre, Associate Professor of Women's Studies, Gender and Sexuality Studies, The Ohio State University
