I am not simply speaking of her growing isolation within the Russian community
abroad; her ingratitude, arrogance, and unwillingness to compromise in literary
matters did little to endear her to others.43 A European (or American) woman is
already excluded within the literary tradition; frequently a second displacement is
necessary in order to participate in that tradition (in effect, to read as a man) .
Tsvetaeva, by rewriting Theseus with herself in the questioning subject position, ...

... playfully reveals Cold War American fantasies of consumer technology as
gendered emancipation and national progress, while exposing the racial and
geographic erasures that form the basis of these visions of the future.1 The video
consists of two sets of footage: post–World War ii American commercials
advertising domestic technologies and targeted toward white American middle-
class women and contemporary footage of black African women videotaped by
the artist in Nigeria.

If the Bible portrayed women as only good, it would be a false text and would
have no credibility. Biblical women such as Delilah, Jezebel and Bathsheba are
troubling to American Feminists, and they are not usually selected as role models
for young women. Female Biblical scholars are challenging the old ways of
reading the Bible and trying to get people to read it in a light that favors them.

central figure in the founding of American women's studies. Her contributions to
the field ...

PART ONE troubling hermeneutics For now we see through a glass, darkly; but
then face to face: now I know in part; hut then shall I know even as also I am
known. 1 Corinthians 13:12 What did African American women see in the Bible?
How did they come to identify so strongly with an ancient, even foreign text?
While researching this topic, I was surprised to find a fourteenth- century woodcut
from the Speculum humanae salvationis (The mirror of man's salvation), which
depicted in a ...
