Making a Feminist Modernist Studies
The chapters in this volume are intended as sources of generation, encouraging scholars and teachers to stretch their critical feminist imaginations toward discovery and possibility, revision and reinvention. This volume strives for an approach that is motivated by discovery, empathy, and excitement. In so doing, the chapters in this volume are not as interested in what secrets scholars can reveal hidden in the texts we read or what counter-ideologies authors have smuggled into their work—the orientation of a suspicious approach. Rather, the chapters in this volume are eager to explore modernist women writers and their work in order to imagine a fresh approach to modernism—the orientation of openness. Instead of excavating, defamiliarizing, and disrupting, the scholars included here intend to open, offer, and amplify. Moreover, the authors in this volume are committed to scholarly introspection: the orientation of openness through which they approach their examination of modernist women writers is also at play in their reflection on our collective feminist project, illustrating the political tensions that infuse our reading postures and writing processes.
