Differences That Matter challenges theories of the relationship between feminism and postmodernism that ask "is/should feminism be modern or postmodern?" Pointing out how postmodernism has been allowed to dictate feminist debates, Sara Ahmed argues instead that feminism must itself ask questions of postmodernism; that feminist theorists speak (back) to postmodernism rather than simply speak on (their relationship to) it. This "speaking back" involves a refusal to position postmodernism as a generalizable condition of the world, using close readings of postmodern constructions of rights, ethics, "woman," subjectivity, authorship and film.
New theory of relationship between feminism and postmodernism, using close readings of literature, film, ethics.
