"The Changing Same" examines defining moments in African American women'sfiction and its reception: the "Women's Era" of the 1890s, the Harlem Renaissance, and the "New Black Renaissance" of the 1970s and 1980s. Deborah McDowell maps thishistory in readings of Emma Dunham Kelley, Frances E. W. Harper, Jessie Fauset, Nella Larsen, Alice Walker, Toni Morrison, and Sherley Anne Williams. She examinesrepresentations of slavery, sexuality, and homoeroticism; the reception of AfricanAmerican women's fiction in the 1980s; and African American feminist writing in the"Age of Theory."
