RIVERSIDE, Calif. (www.ucr.edu) -- Marguerite Waller and Amalia Cabezas, UC Riverside professors and contributors to a book of essays called “Dialogue and Difference; Feminisms Challenge Globalization,” will sign books at 12:30 p.m. Wednesday, May 25, at The Village Bookstore, 1299 University Ave., Suite 101, Riverside.

In this book, published by Palgrave Macmillan in April, an international group of feminist scholars and activists contribute essays, that when taken together, demonstrate the power of dialogue across geographical and ethnic differences.

“These different approaches to reality and to scholarship across the usual North/South, East/West divides serve to demonstrate the value of our differences, as well as our similarities,” said Professor Waller, who is one of the book’s two editors. She said it is the result of a research group she convened at the University of California Humanities Research Institute in 1999.

Waller is a professor of Women’s Studies and Comparative Literature. Professor Cabezas is an assistant professor of Women’s Studies.
