This volume, Meridians 12.1, is rich with literature and politics. Lucille Clifton, Toni Morrison, Jamaica Kincaid, Martha Southgate, Dionne Brand, and Ralph Ellison are all subjects of critical essays; and there is an intriguing fiction piece by Itoro Udofia. On the political end of the spectrum, there is a meditation on the parallels, differences, and contentions within the conceptual notions of Third World and Transnational feminisms. And finally, this issue features a compelling conversation between the activists Gloria Steinem and Ruchira Gupta on the subject of sex trafficking. The conversation, as well as three additional essays on trafficking, was produced for a conference at Smith College.
