Situating, Reflecting, Appreciating

  • V. Spike Peterson


Wendy Harcourt’s innovative structure for this handbook has generated stimulating and instructive discussions across topics, disciplines, generations and regional perspectives. I am honoured to have my essay included as a ‘core text’ and grateful for the generous engagement with it by Khalid (Chapter 7.1), Turcotte (Chapter 7.2) and Niner (Chapter 7.3). The substance of their papers is indicative of the rich, complex and politically salient work feminists have succeeded in producing in a relatively few — and intense — decades, and in spite of enormous resistance both within and outside the academy.
