These essays present a balance of theory and practice, of literary and cultural criticism, of gender, race, aesthetic, colonial and political issues. Distinguished critics from the realms of sociology, politics, cultural studies, women's writing, literature, translation and critical theory focus attention on Judaeo-Hispanic, Portuguese, Afro-Caribbean, Andean, Brazilian, and other cultural texts, in an attempt to locate the inequalities and the differences involved in the making of cultural labels. The collection arises from the international Inequality/Theory conference held at the Graduate School of Critical Theory in the University of Nottingham in July 1992.
