Keridwen Luis ’94

Herlands by Keridwen Luis ’94 an ethnography of women’s land networks in the U.S., and highlights the relevance of these communities as cultural enclaves that impact broader ideas about gender, women’s bodies, lesbian identity, and right ways of living. As a participant-observer, Luis brings unique insights to the lives and stories of the women living in these communities.

While documenting the experiences of specific spaces in Massachusetts, Tennessee, New Mexico, and Ohio, Herlands also explores the history of women’s lands and breaks new ground exploring culture theory, gender theory, and how lesbian identity is conceived and constructed in North America. (University of Minnesota Press, 2018)
