Question Center



  1. I was wondering if you could point me in the right direction to find a very basic/general article about about both feminism and poststructuralism literary criticism. I am analyzing two plays we read in my paper through these "lenses" and have had great success finding other sources to support other parts of my paper but not with finding these general articles.

    One good place to look is Johns Hopkins Guide to Literary Theory and Criticism, which you can locate on the library home page under Databases A-Z. If you do your search like this: feminis* and poststructural*      you will retrieve some full text results that include feminism, feminist, poststructuralism, etc. One entry is entitled Feminist Theory and Criticism: 3. Poststructuralist Feminisms, which sounds relevant and also lists some essential books and articles for further reading.

    Another resource that might be helpful is a book in the library that has a chapter Feminist theory, poststructuralism, and performance /Peggy Phelan . The title of the book is A sourcebook of feminist theatre and performance :on and beyond the stage / edited by Carol Martin and the call number is PN2270.F45 S68 1996. That looks good too.

    Give this a try and let me know how this works for you.
