Standpoints and Differences

Essays in the Practice of Feminist Psychology



© 1998 | 256 pages | SAGE Publications Ltd
This volume investigates a key area of theoretical interest within contemporary feminist and poststructuralist theory, paying particular attention to feminist psychology.

Recognizing that feminist researchers have a long-standing commitment to conducting research from feminist standpoints, the contributors consider the tensions between this and the poststructuralist argument that research and emancipatory politics can flow from personal and political differences. The volume considers questions and developments on `giving voice', and explores arguments and theoretical positions concerning power and subjectivity, paying attention to how these inform research practice.

`An impressive statement from British feminist-mainly discursive social-psychology....The introduction....is a wide-ranging and nuanced discussion of the importance and limitations of the `axis between feminism and poststructuralism'. It maps the issues in a theoretical sophisticated way which should put paid to any lingering notions that psychologists can't work with critical theory' -Feminist Theory
