What happened to the ‘f’ word? Feminisms and Public Sociologies
I want to reflect on the identification in the 1970s of other absent ‘publics’, issues and political questions and how they were addressed by what many of us came to call ‘feminist sociology’. I’d like to examine what appears to be a ‘successful’ response to challenges to sociology similar to the challenge that Linda Tuhiwai Smith offered yesterday. I’d like to reflect on how the ‘success’ of such challenges may precipitate other challenges.
