Methodology of the Oppressed, Minneapolis, University of Minnesota Press (2000)
by Chela Sandoval
Foreword by Angela Y. Davis
A new approach to feminist thought that challenges current critical theories. In a work with far-reaching implications, Chela Sandoval does no less than revise the genealogy of theory over the past thirty years, inserting what she terms “U.S. Third World feminism” into the narrative in a way that thoroughly alters our perspective on contemporary culture and subjectivity. Methodology of the Oppressed represents a major contribution to theory and the understanding of contemporary consciousness. Sandoval has created a series of terms, concepts, and modes of analysis. Consolidating the work of a remarkable range of scholars, she takes the next step in proposing a genuine alternative to the blind alleys in which existing theory often finds itself.
