Episodes from a History of Undoing: The Heritage of Female Subversiveness" (paraphrasing Rada Khumar's seminal study of the development of the feminist movements in India: "The History of Doing") is a volume purporting to illustrate women's resistance to patriarchal colonization through societal norms and hegemonic discourses. Whether mythical amazons, mediaeval authors or regular cannoneses, Renaissance monarchs, activists and academics, philosphers or politicians, such women have become trail-blazers in their fields, attempting to forge new epistemes through strategies of undoing, refashioning, rewriting or revising political and cultural concepts, practices and institutions. The volume comprises 11 essays authored by academics from Brazil, Hungary, Poland, Romania, Turkey and USA and addresses a wide readership of academics, students, historians, NGO activists, etc. The volume is prefaced by Professor Margaret R. Higonnet from Connecticut University.
