portrait of Reshmi Mukherjee

Reshmi Mukherjee, an assistant professor in the Department of English, published a book chapter “Gender and Imagination: A Feminist Analysis of Shahrnush Parsipur’s Women Without Men” in Imagination and Art: Explorations in Contemporary Theory.

The chapter examines the use of the surrealist technique of automatic writing by Shahrnush Parsipur as a radical imagination that weaves aesthetic experimentation, Iranian women’s right issues, and resistance to the patriarchal state ideology together in the novella Women Without Men.
