Communal Feminisms: Chicanas, Chilenas and Cultural Exile

Lexington Books: Lindham, Md., 2007, paper back reissued, 2010.

Communal Feminisms breaks new ground in the breadth of issues covered and implications across disciplinary fields. One of these fields is psychology, with the issues on identity and self and other perception, issues that are part of psychology in general, but which often lack a global and intercultural perspective within that field. It has implications for Women's Studies, a discipline in which the word 'women' usually refers to the experiences and perceptions of white women and the experiences of Women of Color, especially in the United States, are often ignored. In the fields of Literature, Rhetoric, and English the stories of racial identity and of the rhetoric of diversity still follow a mainstream perspective; this book will challenge that perspective. In the field of Ethnic Studies, this book will facilitate discussions on the intersections of race and gender. The book also crosses fields of sociology, political science, and communication. It is a good resource for scholars and students.
