The Epistemology of Resistance

Gender and Racial Oppression, Epistemic Injustice, and Resistant Imaginations

José Medina

Studies in Feminist Philosophy

  • This book offers a new theory of social insensitivity, a new kind of interactionism and contextualism, and a new account of solidarity and activism through the notion of chained agency.
  • Its account of chained acts of resistance delineates a new version of the social connection model of shared responsibility and the notion of network solidarity.
  • The book also offers a new study of iconic figures of resistance in Latina Feminism and the Civil Rights Movement: Sor Juana Inés de la Cruz and Rosa Parks.
