Summary

This book explores the critical significance of the visual arts to transnational feminist thought and activism.

This first volume in Marsha Meskimmon’s powerful and timely trilogy focuses on some of the central political challenges of our era, including war, migration, ecological destruction, sexual violence and the return of neo-nationalisms. It argues that transnational feminisms and the arts can play a pivotal role in forging the solidarities and epistemic communities needed to create social, economic and ecological justice on a world scale. Transnational feminisms and the arts provide a vital space for knowing, imagining and inhabiting - earthwide and otherwise. The chapters in this book each take their lead from a current matter of political significance that is central to transnational feminist activist organising and has been explored through the arts in ways that permit dialogues across geopolitical borders to take place.

Including examples of artwork in full colour, this is essential reading for students and researchers in art history, theory and practice, visual culture studies; feminism, and gender studies, political theory and cultural geography.
