schema:description"Where are the women writers of color? Where are their theoretical voices? The fifteen contributors to Other Sisterhoods examine how women writers of color have contributed to the discourse of literary and cultural theory. They focus on the impact of key issues, such as social construction and identity politics, on the works of women writers of color, as well as how these women deal with differences relating to gender, class, race/ethnicity, and sexuality. The book also explores the ways women writers of color have created their own ethnopoetics within the arena of literary and cultural theory, helping to redefine the nature of theory itself."@en
