    • Abstract:
      This article calls for more comparative perspectives among four cognate fields of study: postcolonial, feminist, ethnic, and francophone studies. Following the insights of Gloria Anzaldúa, Chela Sandoval, Gayatri Spivak, and Ella Shohat, I argue for decolonial feminist practices in comparative research. I provide specific examples of such decolonial feminist scholarship through comparing and contrasting multilingual strategies in the works of three transnational feminist writers: francophone Algerian writer Assia Djebar, anglophone postcolonial filmmaker and writer Tsitsi Dangarembga from Zimbabwe, and Chicana essayist and poet Gloria Anzaldúa. The presence of indigenous, national, or ethnic languages in texts written in English or French defamiliarizes these dominant languages for native speakers of French or English, and makes those languages more hospitable to native speakers of Arabic, Shona, or Spanish. I demonstrate how understanding the linguistic subtleties of the texts allows for more nuanced, culturally-relevant feminist interpretations of the message of the works. [ABSTRACT FROM AUTHOR]
