Summary: "Powerful, passionate, analytical Emergent Writing Methodologies in Feminist Studieslocates itself at the crossroads between social science and the humanities, between the understanding, the writing and the doing of the social, between self and society. A path-breaking contribution to methodological debates that cautiously explores the politics of writing, the art of dialogue and the difficult but vital scholarly connections between writing, analysis and the emergence of alternative notions of social justice." - Diana Mulinari, Professor in Gender Studies and Sociology, Centre for Gender Studies, Lund University, Sweden. "I've waited a long time for a book as clear and powerful as this to be written: its quiet confidence affirms the achievements of gender studies in recent years and the contribution feminism has made across the disciplines: challenging procedural norms and questioning the limits of knowledge by inventing relational methodologies and hybrid genres. All these exciting qualities are to be found in this elegant collection of essays, where conceptual and critical rigor is blended with emotion surprising, affecting, touching It is so hard to discuss issues of intellectual process in ways that engage and excite, and raise further possibilities for imagining yet new approaches, yet this is exactly what these marvelous essays do, speaking in multiple voices across the spectrum of feminist academic writing today." - Jane Rendell, Professor in Architecture and Art, Bartlett Faculty of the Built Environment, University College London, UK.

Contemporary challenges for seeking new knowledge in feminist studies are intimately intertwined with methodological renewal that promotes justice and equality in changing global contexts. Written by some of the leading scholars in their fields, this edited collection focuses on the emergence of writing methodologies in feminist studies and their implications for the study of power and change.
The book explores some of the central politics, ideas, and dimensions of power that shape and condition knowledge, at the same time as it elaborates critical, embodied, reflective and situated writing practices. By bringing together a variety of multi/transdisciplinary contributions in a single collection, the anthology offers a timely and intellectually stimulating contribution that deals with how new forms of writing research can contribute to promote fruitful analysis of inequality and power relations related to gender, racialisation, ethnicity, class and heteronormativity and their intersections. It also includes the complex relationship between author, text and audiences.
The intended audience is postgraduates, researchers and academics within feminist and intersectionality studies across disciplines in the humanities and social sciences. The book is excellent as literature in feminist studies courses and helpful guidance for teaching writing sessions and workshops.
Mona Livholts is Associate Professor of Social Work and Research Fellow of Social Work with an orientation towards gender at Mid Sweden University, Sweden.
