Knowing Feminisms looks at feminism as a vital source of new knowledge and new ways of working throughout a range of disciplines. It also scrutinizes the sometimes highly problematic forms its presence within academia can take. The contributors, all well-known feminist academics, discuss the epistemological and ontological `borderlands' that feminisms inhabit, which although within, still remain `other' to, the academy.

The book addresses fundamentally important questions such as: Should feminists work within traditional disciplines or abandon them in favour of Women's Studies? Is the idea of feminist pedagogy as `empowerment' actually one which de-skills? Does the feminist transformation of some academic disciplines signify that these are no longer significant sites of knowledge and/or power? Do the essential organizational features of disciplines and institutions depend upon repressive means, or is it possible to transform these according to feminist principles? Are some disciplines and types of institutions particularly resistant to feminist ideas? Is an intellectual `home' for feminism ever possible or desirable within academia, or is critical thinking best done from the margins? Can Women's Studies as an organizational presence within the university encompass dissenting positions on these foundational questions, or will it contain and control what can be said and by whom?

Review:

`Knowing Feminisms is an analysis of the complex relationship of the feminist academic with her profession... This book is an excellent compilation of feminist critiques from the standpoint of women in seven academic disciplines' - NWSA Journal

`Stanley's collection aims to avert the feminist gaze away from those "others" who are its subject matter, "and a little towards this `gaze' itself, to the process of knowledge production"... a necessary read' - Feminist Magazine
