Social Studies

Rebecca Solnit is an incisive voice on topics ranging from feminism to the environment, western and indigenous history to literary criticism, and from hope and disaster to popular power and social change. She has published more than twenty books, including three collections of essays – Hope in the Dark, Men Explain Things to Me, and The Mother of All Questions – as well as a trilogy of atlases of American cities and a work of literary criticism on Eadweard Muybridge. Her memoir, Recollections of My Nonexistence looks back on the formative people, places, and experiences that provided Solnit with her empowering and ever-vital notion of self, and the voicelessness that was and still is the ordinary condition of women.
