In this special issue of differences, edited by Joan Wallach Scott, contributors from very different institutions look at Women's Studies now. Is it a field still on the cutting edge of theory and knowledge, or has it lost its edge due to internal conflicts and to large changes in the organization of the university? Can the future of Women's Studies be read in debates about identity politics or predictions about the death of feminism? Or has it earned a lasting place in the curriculum? And is that a desirable development? Contributors range from senior scholars who have helped shape Women's Studies to students who are doing their work in Women's Studies.show more
