Next Wave: New Directions in Women's Studies

Series editor(s):

Caren Kaplan, Inderpal Grewal, Robyn Wiegman


This series provides a forum for feminist scholarship that negotiates the transformations in intellectual scope, theory, and method that have altered the horizons of women's studies for the new century. Next Wave books firmly reassess feminist interdisciplinarity; emphasize the transnational study of women; reformulate historical and genealogical gender studies in relation to race, class, sexuality, religion, ethnicity, and nationality; and destabilize the division between humanistic and scientific knowledges in the study of women, gender, and sexuality. By bringing together scholarship that works to resignify women's studies as a field, the Next Wave series will help develop new paradigms, lexicons, and critical contexts for understanding the scope and challenge of interdisciplinary identity studies to the organization of knowledge and power in the contemporary university.
