Mixed Media: Feminist Presses and Publishing Politics

Murray, Simone

£27.99 

The feminist press movement transformed the publishing industry, literary culture and educational curricula during the last quarter of the 20th century. This book is both a survey of the movement internationally and a detailed critique of its long-term impact. Feminist presses are described as 'mixed media', always attempting to balance politics with profit-making.

Using a series of detailed case studies, Simone Murray highlights the specific debates through which this dilemma plays out: the nature of independence; the politics of race; feminist publishing and the academy; radical writing and publishing practice; and feminism's interface with mainstream publishing.
