Recognizing that feminism, race, transnationalism, and women of color are contested terms, Meridians engages the complexity of these debates in a dialogue across ethnic and national boundaries, as well as across traditional disciplinary boundaries in the academy. The goal of Meridians is to make scholarship by and about women of color central to global and US economic conditions, their political practices, the articulation of histories, geographies, cultures, and sexualities, as well as the forms and meanings of resistance and activist strategies.
