This interdisciplinary anthology highlights exiled/alienated women in literature, history, and cinema. Contributors investigate when and how women from diverse backgrounds have been relegated to the margins in order to shed light on the state of alienhood that stems from gendered otherness.

Bibliographic information


'Can we envision a world where we embrace otherness? In an increasingly mobile, but fractious world, Exile Through a Gendered Lens adds another link into the history of English, French, German, and Spanish women writers and filmmakers that explore, expose and/or subvert gendered otherness. It is a welcome and useful text that I will include in my class.' - María Camí-Vela, University of North Carolina Wilmington
