Abstract

Drawing on transnational feminist cultural studies and Gayatri Spivak's notion of "planet-talk," this article reconsiders the questions posed to textual figures of immigrant and minority women. Assumptions of Western cultural superiority have limited the focus of scholarship addressing immigrant women's economic and political positionings in Germany. Scholars must work to imagine a wider range of possibilities for immigrant women's participations in life in Germany, particularly in relationship to economic and political subjectivities, in order to better enable scholarship analyzing the intensely gendered processes of globalization.
