Summary
Although most scholars situate her work within the context of the women's, gay and lesbian, and black civil rights movements within the United States, Audre Lorde (1934-1992) forged coalitions with women in Europe, the Caribbean, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, and Africa. Audre Lorde's Transnational Legacies is the first book to systematically document and thoroughly investigate Lorde's influence beyond the United States. Arranged in three thematically interrelated sections - Archives, Connections, and Work - the volume brings together scholarly essays, interviews, Lorde's unpublished speech about Europe, and personal reflections and testimonials from key figures throughout the world. Using a range of interdisciplinary approaches, contributors assess the reception, translation, and circulation of Lorde's writing and activism within different communities, audiences, and circles. They also shed new light on the work Lorde inspired across disciplinary borders. -- from back cover
