[Xmca-l] Re: PDF Document Sociocultural and Feminist Theory_ Mutuality and Relevance.pdf



At AERA a few weeks back I saw a panel with Jacob McWilliams on it that was
dealing with these very issues that you mention here Mike as you quote and
"hear here" Phillip's comments.

The talks on the panel that Jacob was on were, as I understand it, chapters
of an upcoming book that will be edited by Angela Booker and ???. I fear
I've forgotten some of the details but I do remember the panel being one of
the best panels I attended at AERA this year.

Jacob, or perhaps someone else familiar with the book: could you fill in
the details here? Who is the co-editor (or co-editors)? What is the name of
the volume?

Any other details would be greatly appreciated (anticipated publication
date? Perhaps a list of authors if it isn't too premature).

Thanks,
greg
