Description

In this lively, thought-provoking study, AnaLouise Keating writes in the traditions of radical U.S. women-of-color feminist/womanist thought and queer studies, inviting us to transform how we think about identity, difference, social justice and social change, metaphysics, reading, and teaching. Through detailed investigations of women of color theories and writings, indigenous thought, and her own personal and pedagogical experiences, Keating develops transformative modes of engagement that move through oppositional approaches to embrace interconnectivity as a framework for identity formation, theorizing, social change, and the possibility of planetary citizenship. Speaking to many dimensions of contemporary scholarship, activism, and social justice work, Transformation Now! calls for and enacts innovative, radically inclusionary ways of reading, teaching, and communicating.show more

Review quote

"Transformation Now! is an important addition to the body of visionary literature by feminists and womanists of color."--Women's Review of Books "Offers a thoughtful and provocative theoretical framework for moving through and beyond binary thinking and identity politics. . . . Those interested in social justice work will benefit from Keating's post-oppositional framework for bringing about social change. Highly Recommended."--Choice "This truly unique and exciting study uses the writings of U.S. women of color to transform the ways in which we do academic and political work, positing a model of interconnectivity between the individual and the community as an alternative to identity politics. The book will appeal to intellectuals interested in social justice of any kind."--Suzanne Bost, author of Encarnacion: Illness and Body Politics in Chicana Feminist Literatureshow more
