Miller, Nancy K.


In the era of identity politics, whose is the "I" of cultural criticism? And what does the invention of an autobiographical persona have to do with contemporary theory? InGetting Personal, Nancy K. Miller reflects upon the ways in which contingencies of identity and location shape the writing of academic argument and the living of an academic life. Getting Personalexplores the new territory of feminist cultural studies and its connections to literary interpretation. The book is organized around a number of academic scenes in which Miller analyses the stakes of feminist critical performance. The focus on occasions, from the conference to the seminar to the professional colloquium, produces an autobiographical perspective on the mini-drama of institutional politics - whether faculty struggles over the canon in elite universities, or student strivings for self-authorization in large urban ones. Writing "as a" feminist critic, Miller describes the dilemmas of a responsible pedogogic practice:the contradictory demands of authority and complicity for a feminist teacher of literature. GettingPersonalexamines the rhetorical strategies of a feminism traversed by internal debates over its own self-representations. Working through and among quotations of voices that might otherwise not address each other, Miller assesses a crisis and offers a project for moving on.Miller, Nancy K. is the author of 'Getting Personal Feminist Occasions and Other Autobiographical Acts' with ISBN 9780415903240 and ISBN 0415903246.
