With a specific focus on the notion of 'cultural translation'
and 'travelling theory', this series operates on the assumption
that that ideas are shaped by the historical, social and
intellectual contexts in which they emerge, as well as by the ways
that they 'travel' across borders and are received and
re-articulated in new contexts.
In demonstrating the complexity of the differences (and
similarities) in feminist thought throughout Europe and between
Europe and other parts of the world, the books in this series
highlight the ways in which intellectual and political traditions,
often read as homogeneous, are more often heterogeneous. It
therefore provides a forum for the latest work that engages with
the migrations and diasporas of the European experience,
illuminating the various feminist exchanges within Europe, as well
as the many influences (not least from the United States) which
have informed aspects of European feminism. The series thus allows
for an international discussion about the history and imaginary of
Europe from perspectives without and outside Europe, examining not
only Europe's colonial legacy as understood in terms of
geographical and political conquest, but also the various forms of
'cultural imperialism' that have shaped societies outside
Considering aspects of Europe 'abroad' as well as Europe 'at
home', this series is committed to publishing work that reveals the
central and continued importance of the genealogy of feminist ideas
to feminism and all those interested in questions of gender.
