When the Moon Waxes Red

Representation, Gender and Cultural Politics

In this new collection of her provocative essays on Third World art and culture, Trinh Minh-ha offers new challenges to Western regimes of knowledge. Bringing to her subjects an acute sense of the many meanings of the marginal, she examines topics such as Asian and African texts, the theories of Barthes, questions of spectatorship, the enigmas of art, and the perils of anthropology. When the Moon Waxes Red is an extended argument against reductive analyses, even those that appear politically adroit. The multiply-hyphenated peoples of color are not simply placed in a duality between two cultural heritages; throughout, Trinh describes the predicament of having to live "a difference that has no name and too many names already." She argues for multicultural revision of knowledge so that a new politics can transform reality rather than merely ideologize it. By rewriting the always emerging, already distorted place of struggle, such work seeks to "beat the master at his own game."

Fokus Intersektionalität

Bewegungen und Verortungen eines vielschichtigen Konzeptes

Die hier versammelten Beiträge spiegeln den aktuellen Stand der Debatte um Intersektionalität 20 Jahre nach Prägung des Begriffes im Schwarzen Feminismus in den USA. Bei seiner transatlantischen Reise durchlief der Ansatz Metamorphosen und fiel in Europa auf vorbereiteten Boden, insbesondere in anglophonen und deutschsprachigen feministischen Diskursen. Klasse, Geschlecht, Ethnizität und „Rasse“, Sexualität, Behinderung, Alter und andere Dimensionen von Ungleichheit und Identität werden inzwischen in intersektioneller Perspektive untersucht. In diesem Band wird der Ansatz vorgestellt und in transdisziplinäre und transnationale Analyseperspektiven wie Diskurstheorie, Biographieforschung, Wissenssoziologie, Rahmenanalyse und Sozialstrukturanalyse eingesetzt, ergänzt um kritische Interventionen zu Problemen und Grenzen dieses Konzepts. Mit Beiträgen von Mechtild Bereswill, Kimberlé Crenshaw, Kathy Davis, Jeff Hearn, Gudrun-Axeli Knapp, Kira Kosnick, Gail Lewis, Helma Lutz, Nina Lykke, Myra Marx Ferree, Anke Neuber, Ann Phoenix, Paula Irene Villa, Nira Yuval Davis, und Dubravka Zarkov.

»Sexus und Herrschaft« ist Kate Milletts erstes Buch. Es erschien 1969 und machte die Autorin über Nacht berühmt. Übersetzungen in zahlreiche Sprachen folgten. Kate Millett stellt in ihrem Buch die These auf, daß Sexualität ein politisches Instrument ist und der Koitus, die scheinbar intimste Beziehung zwischen den Geschlechtern, dem Patriarchat zur Unterdrückung und Demütigung der Frau dient. Als Beleg für ihre These analysiert sie die Werke von Autoren wie D. H. Lawrence, Henry Miller, Norman Mailer, Jean Genet. Das Buch gehört seit seinem Erscheinen zu den Standardwerken der Frauenbewegung.

Was Paul an opponent of imperialism or a participant in the patriarchal social codes of his day? Joseph A. Marchal moves beyond this too-simple dichotomy to examine the language of power and obedience, ethnicity, and gender in Paul's letters.
