In Getting Personal, Nancy K. Miller reflects upon the ways in which contingencies of identity and location shape the writing of academic argument and the living of an academic life. Getting Personal explores the new territory of feminist cultural studies and its connections to literary interpretation. The book is organized around a number of academic scenes in which Miller analyses the stakes of feminist critical performance.

First published in 1991. Routledge is an imprint of Taylor & Francis, an informa company.

Considers the ways in which identity and location shape academic argument and academic life. "Getting Personal" explores the new territory of feminist cultural studies. Organized around a number of academic scenes which analyze feminist critical performance, Miller focuses on occasions, from the the conference and seminar to the professional colloquium, to produce an autobiographical perspective on the mini-drama of institutional politics. As a feminist critic, Miller describes the dilemmas of a responsible pedagogic practice: the contradictory demands of authority and complicity for a feminist teacher of literature. "Getting Personal" examines the rhetorical strategies of a feminism traversed by internal debates over its own self-representations and suggests a way forward. This book should be of interest to students and lecturers in literary studies and women's studies.
