Professor Fox Publishes Book
The GVSU English Department is proud to announce the publication of Professor Regis Fox's new book, Resistance Reimagined: Black Women's Critical Thought as Survival by the University Press of Florida.
From the publisher: "Resistance Reimagined highlights unconventional modes of black women’s activism within a society that has spoken so much of freedom but has granted it so selectively. Regis Fox terms this gap between democratic promise and dispossession the 'liberal problematic,' and in this book she shows how black women have disrupted it as a form of resistance. Looking closely at nineteenth- and twentieth-century writings by African American women that reimagine antebellum America, Fox introduces types of black activism that differ from common associations with militancy and maleness. In doing so, she confronts expectations about what African American literature can and should be."
