Mapping the Feminine honors the extraordinary life, path-breaking career, and pioneering scholarship of a truly modest woman--Professor Marina Viktorovna Ledkovsky, Barnard College emerita. In fifteen essays that are nearly evenly divided between eighteenth- and nineteenth-century subjects on the one hand, and twentieth- and twenty-first-century subjects on the other, contributors cover some of the main areas of gender studies, encompassing transnational studies, cultural studies, the recovery of forgotten women, and the male canon. Comparative in their scope, the articles are grouped according to the following theoretical approaches: psychology and the gaze, nature, performance, exile, and canon.

Born in Germany, Marina Ledkovsky attended Berlin's prestigious Friedrich-Wilhelms-Universitat. After the Second World War she emigrated to New York, where she resumed her education at Columbia University, becoming one of the first female professors at Columbia. Her areas of teaching and scholarship include Russian language and linguistics, literature, church music and its history, autobiography, and women writers. Marina Ledkovsky is the author of The Other Turgenev: From Romanticism to Symbolism, compiler of an anthology of contemporary Russian women writers (Russia According to Women), and co-author of the monumental Dictionary of Russian Women Writers.
