Om Women in Dialogue
Women in Dialogue: (M)Uses of Culture results from an international symposium held at Ege University, Izmir, Turkey, in 2006, which brought together scholars from over ten countries, and from multiple academic backgrounds, who share professional interest in women's studies, and, to no less degree, in current women's realities. The book presents a collection of essays united by a common focus on the position of women as objects of cultural production in different geographic, national, and political contexts, as well as the character and typology of women's contribution to cultural activity across the ethnic or religious divide marking the face of contemporary world.The volume comprises two sections: the first, titled "Women in Dialogue," contains contributions which analyze literary representations of women from a variety of perspectives, and from diverse spatial and temporal locations. The second part, titled "(M)Uses of Culture," includes personalized observations by several women writers, of both poetry and fiction, their commentaries on their own work as artists, and their deeply experienced "musings" on the position of women as artists in the world of today. The essays that this volume brings together are varied in subject matter; yet they are connected by the common theme, epitomized in the metaphor of dialogue, as a platform for active, productive communication, leading - on the pages of the book, if not elsewhere - to learning, and mutual understanding.
