Article in Response to Controversy
In this paper we look at outsiders/within, a pivotal concept in not only women’s studies, but also in racial/ethnic studies and the social sciences, especially sociology. After showing how problematic this modernist notion tends to be, we theoretically complicate it. Thereafter, we show how once theoretically embellished, some version of this concept offers a foundation for a postmodernist multiculturalism that is necessarily and inclusively feminist.
