Representing Rural Women

«This collection addresses how rural women, long overlooked by literary scholars, have been represented by others and themselves in various mediums from literature to social media. Anyone interested in rural women, past and present, the spaces they inhabit and symbolic imaginaries, will find it fascinating as it challenges preconceived notions about women and rurality.»

Representing Rural Women seeks to highlight the complexity and diversity of representations of rural women in the U.S. and Canada from the nineteenth to twenty-first centuries. The 15 chapters in the collection offer fresh perspectives on representations of rural women in literature, popular culture, and print, digital, and social media. They explore a wide range of time periods, geographic spaces, and rural women’s experiences, including Mormon pioneer women, rural lesbians in the 1970s, Canadian rural women’s organizations, and rural trans youth. In their stories, these women and girls navigate multiple settings and address the complex realities of rural life, create spaces for self-expression, develop networks to communicate their experiences, and seek to challenge misconceptions and stereotypes of rural womanhood. The chapters in this collection consider the ways that rural geography may allow freedoms as well as impose constraints on women’s lives, and ultimately how cultural representations of rural womanhood both reflect and shape women’s experiences.

«I found this work engrossing, fascinating, and insightful. Encompassing themes of race, class, and sexuality, it shows that cultural representations of being female and rural are myriad, complex, and multi-faceted. It offers new ways for seeing and understanding rural women’s experiences. The perceptive analyses here of how diverse rural female figures have alternatively found comfort, belonging, isolation, violence, and power offers a potent corrective to notions of rural worlds as monolithic, irrelevant, or passé. This is a wonderful and incredibly moving book.»

«Spanning over a century in the US and Canada, Representing Rural Women challenges our ideas of who rural women are and what they do. Through various media, representations of rural women and by rural women—such as Hurricane Katrina survivors, lesbians in the 1970s, fashion bloggers, trans girls, those who migrated, and more—complicate what it means to be a rural woman. Authors from a range of disciplines remind us at every turn of the multiplicity of rural experiences that counteract the way rural lives are narrowly depicted in public discourse.»
