She argues: Citation practices internal to Western feminist narratives of progress, loss and return are partly what enable a combined chronology across the strands, and that these similarities go a long way to producing a shared vision of both what has happened in the past and what needs to happen in the future. (2011:161) Hemmings disrupts conventional citation practices firstly by citing the journal name and date, rather than author, of the articles that form the basis of her enquiry. This emphasises the role of journal conventions in the production of knowledge and encourages the detection of patterns across a journal set, rather than attributing them to individual authors.
Accounts of historical events cannot be separated from the intimate and personal narratives and memories of the teller. Recent work on the narratives of feminist histories emphasises this point and in doing so destabilises dominant accounts of Western feminist histories and the erasures enacted by them. In paying attention to the stories women tell about becoming feminist and bringing the processes of narrative and memory to the centre of thinking about the development of feminist identities and subjectivities, this book illustrates the interconnectedness of personal and collective understandings of feminism and the ways in which feminist histories are reworked, negotiated, adopted and resisted through story-telling.
Attending to these points in their accounts highlights how the framing of these moments in a coherent, recognisable narrative, such as the generational narrative, is an illusionary and momentary means of coming to ‘know’ feminism. These overarching narratives are used to order a series of perhaps disconnected and disparate experiences. The empirical exploration of these women’s accounts offers some understanding of how these dominant narratives operate. Secondly, I am not claiming here to have produced a complete ‘knowledge’ of feminism, in terms of making claims that feminism in its entirety can be known.
