Abstract

The form and content of knowledge has been dominated, and continues to be, by Western academia, constructed from a white, heterosexual, nondisabled male perspective. Feminist academics in this book have challenged these biases through exploring the theorizations of subjectivity in four areas: embodiment and emotions; dualisms and bodies; knowledges; and inter-subjectivities in research practices. They provide a wide variety of knowledge settings from self-help texts, policy documents, oral networks, and artistic performances from different geographical spacialities.
