Undisciplined Women Tradition and Culture in Canada

by Pauline Greenhill

Undisciplined Women Tradition and Culture in Canada Synopsis

Dealing with women and culture in Canada, this text explores a range of subjects in folklore scholarship from female sailors to women preachers. Contributors examine how women have been involved in identifying, collecting, and interpreting women's folklore; how various images of women have been created, used, and resisted; and how women transform the lives and culture of themselves and others.

Undisciplined Women Tradition and Culture in Canada Press Reviews

A highly pleasurable and provocative read. Undisciplined Women is a richly textured work that sets out to make explicit the taken-for-granted knowledge and beliefs that shape knowledge production in folklore studies in Canada. It lays out a clear framework for critiquing the colonial status of Canadian folklore study and breaks exciting new ground by persistently interpreting folkloric material through the use of post-structuralist and feminist methodologies. The book is worthy and refreshing in its achievement of perspectives that are 'not just' normatively white/male/Eurocentric/heterosexual. Judith Robertson, Faculty of Education, University of Ottawa
