Feminism, Time, and Nonlinear History

Research output: Contribution to journalReview articlepeer-review


How can feminism draw productively on its own history, without passively conforming to expectations of the past, or elevating the past as a nostalgic ideal against which to measure and compare the present? Feminism, Time, and Nonlinear History proposes an innovative 'polytemporal' model of historical time in relation to feminist historiography. Interweaving phenomenological, hermeneutical, and sociopolitical analyses, this book considers the ways in which feminists conceptualize and produce the temporalities of feminism, including the time of the trace, narrative time, calendar time, and generational time. Introduction: Feminism and historical time -- Lived time and polytemporality -- The time of the trace -- Narrative time -- Calendar time -- Generational time -- Conclusion: the politics of feminist time.
