Decolonizing Feminism: Transnational Feminism & Globalization
Edited by Margaret A. McLaren
This anthology will address pressing questions for transnational feminism in the 21st Century: strategies, methodologies, and controversies. Following Chandra Mohanty’s call for an inclusive feminist politics, this book will focus on current challenges for global/transnational feminism in a globalized world, and how to decolonize feminist theory and feminism. Authors should submit a proposal for an original essay addressing one of the questions below.

- How is decolonization enacted in specific locations and projects
- Which methodologies promote a decolonized transnational feminism
