An edited collection which can be seen as a milestone in diversifying and decolonising the curriculum in German Studies. Cathy Gelbin, one of the co-editors of the book describes it as follows: “This interdisciplinary anthology is regarded by US and German critics as an essential source text on minoritised women in the German-speaking context. Based on a 1997 conference in Cologne that I co-organised to bring together Jewish, Black and migrant activists, scholars and artists, the volume traces minoritised women’s cultural legacies in pre- and post-unification Germany. It addresses questions such as the possibilities of coalition politics, and of translating political activism into scholarship and visa versa.”
