For ten years some of Canada's most innovative and critical writers have published their work in the literary journal Tessera. With Collaboration in the Feminine, editor Barbara Godard has drawn together selected texts from this important journal to give the reader a sampling of the exciting feminist work to be found in Tessera's pages.
The contributors provided fresh insights into themes such as race and gender, writing and memory, power and ethics, feminist theory and translation. The collection vividly explores the breaking down of formal barriers and the writing across genres that has been such an important facet of this feminist literary project.
Barbara Godard is a founding co-editor of Tessera, and teaches English literature and Women's Studies at York University. She has translated a number of Quebec feminist writers including France Theoret and Nicole Brossard. She is the editor/author of several books including Gynocritics/Gynocritiques: Feminist Approaches to the Writing of Canadian and Quebec Women and Audrey Thomas: Her Life and Work.
