Being Dismissed: The Politics of Emotional Expression

Hypatia 9 (3):46 - 65 (1994)
  Copy   BIBTEX


My intent is to bring a key group of critical terms associated with the emotions-bitterness, sentimentality, and emotionality-to greater feminist attention. These terms are used to characterize emoters on the basis of how we express ourselves, and they characterize us in ways that we need no longer be taken seriously. I analyze the ways in which these terms of emotional dismissal can be put to powerful political use.
