Hello! I have to admit that there were quite a few terms and definitions in the readings that I was unfamiliar with and here are a few of them:
a) international versus transnational feminism: the explanation on page xix of Alexander and Mohanty is very helpful, but I wonder if what they say about international feminism still holds true today or whether it has evolved since the late nineties?
b) transborder participatory democracy (Alexander and Mohanty, xxix): the definition of this term is not totally clear to me. It also seems to me that this is a very ambitious concept?!
c) the concept of universal citizenship (Alexander and Mohanty, xxxi): does it only apply to individual states or is it also supposed to be understood as a more abstract transborder or transnational idea?
d) polyphonic space (Shohat, 2): Shohat gives a concise definition, but I wonder how this notion was adapted, i.e. how Bakhtin defined it?
