This general volume is divided among three sections. The first section explores Audre Lorde’s groundbreaking work on Black, lesbian, and women’s studies through the lens of labor. The second section of this volume presents two essays that focus on global feminist critiques, suggesting an expansive, and yet connective, vision of feminist conversations beyond the United States. The third section of this volume expands upon feminist concepts of time, imaginaries, women’s politics, and reproductive rights. The essays in this volume demonstrate the discursive nature of women’s and gender studies, revealing the multiple and interactive layers of inquiry by which feminist scholarship emerges. Just as an ink rendering might speak to a designer chair, which also speaks to an abstract sculpture, these diverse essays engage in the critical conversations that define today’s past and emerging models of feminist scholarship.
