About the Author

Clare Hemmings is Professor of Feminist Theory and Director of the Department of Gender Studies at the London School of Economics and Political Science, and the author and coeditor of several books, including Why Stories Matter: The Political Grammar of Feminist Theory, also published by Duke University Press.


"Incredibly thorough and deeply researched, Considering Emma Goldman is a valuable continuation in conversations of feminist theory, race, capitalism, sexuality, and of course Emma Goldman herself." -- Sarah Moazeni * American Communist History *
"Hemmings offers a rich, complex and searching new engagement with Goldman's life and politics. . . . By considering Goldman, Hemmings shines a light on a life lived with panache to urge continuing, unbound and imperfect engagement with the dilemmas that feminists too often struggle to resolve." -- Ruth Kinna * LSE Review of Books *
"Clare Hemmings has written a rich and thoughtful book from which we can learn a great deal." -- Kathy F. Ferguson * Theory & Event *
"Considering Emma Goldman is a must-read, invariably insightful, sometimes painful, always provocative and, in my humble opinion, uncomfortably spot-on." -- Kathy Davis * European Journal of Women's Studies *
"Clare Hemmings is an extremely astute reader and user of both the subjective and the critical archive on Emma Goldman. She is as well-versed in the literature as one could possibly hope. She is a passionate and determined author. Too, she is convincing that we should turn to rather than away from uncomfortable passages in those whose work we study, as these are potentially among the more fruitful, revealing moments." -- Penny Weiss * Hypatia Reviews Online *
"This volume challenges us to be willing to take risks-as Goldman did-both in our theorizing and in our lives, and to highlight and examine the contradictions we experience, rather than denying them." -- Martha Ackelsberg * American Historical Review *
