Dyke Ideas
Dyke Ideas (March 1994)
Process, Politics, Daily Life
Joyce Trebilcot - Author

Dyke Ideas is a passionate and insightful contribution to lesbian philosophy. The main value is wimmin--women separate from men and men's inventions. "Craziness," guilt, competition, sex, and other topics are explored in ways that reject male values and move toward wimmin-identified cultures.

Emotion, Depth, and Flesh: A Study of Sensitive Space (October 1993)
Reflections on Merleau-Ponty's Philosophy of Embodiment
Suzanne L. Cataldi - Author

"After a decade or two of dominance by behaviorist thinkers, followed by another decade or two of dominance by cognitive theorists, the time is ripe for study of the emotions (and affections in general) to assume center stage. Much evidence indicates that this is indeed happening and Cataldi's work appears just in time. She is a gifted thinker, with tremendous focus and uncanny writing skills." -- Robert Marrone, California State University, Sacra...(Read More)

The Case of the Clergy
Edward C. Lehman Jr. - Author

"This is a very careful and scholarly study of the differences in leadership styles of women clergy and men clergy."

Martin A. Danahay - Author

Complementing recent feminist studies of female self-representation, this book examines the dynamics of masculine self-representation in nineteenth-century British literature. Arguing that the category "autobiography" was a product of nineteenth-century individualism, the author analyzes the dependence of the nineteenth-century masculine subject on autonomy or self-naming as the prerequisite for the composition of a life history. The masculine aut...(Read More)
 
 
Gender and the Journal
Gender and the Journal (February 1992)
Diaries and Academic Discourse
Cinthia Gannett - Author

"This book is a fascinating piece of research. The juxtaposition of linguistics, gender studies, psychology of women, social construction theory, as it informs writing, generally, and journaling, specifically, is a unique and intriguing analysis. The result is very illuminating and addresses the issue of "gendered journals" in a sophisticated and sensitive way." -- Jill Mattnek Tarule, Lesley College

This book explores the gendered historic...(Read More)
