Abstract

Of the twenty-one articles in Female Studies VI, twenty are "close to the ground." They deal not with polemics justifying women's studies nor revelations of male images of women but with women at work with literature about women: teaching it in the classroom, writing criticism about specific authors, establishing a communal learning experience. Section II, "Women's Studies in the Classroom," is presented in detail through specific experiences at a prestigious undergraduate college, a community college, a state college, and a law school. Some of the writers are political radicals, others are traditional academics; some are self-taught students. They all share a sense of excitement; their common discovery is that they find "personal meaning in the work at hand." The course content necessitates a nonhierarchical sharing of experience which changes the people involved.
