Scope and Content Note

The bulk of the writings series contains files related to books and articles written by Fineman; drafts which Fineman prepared for lectures and other oral presentations are also filed here.

Articles and lectures files (Subseries 2.1) include the texts of numerous articles written for both scholarly and lay publications. Correspondence, research materials, and notes related to these articles are also present. Texts of lectures, conference presentations, and other talks are part of this subseries. The files are arranged alphabetically by title of article or talk.

A section on The Neutered Mother, The Sexual Family, and Other Twentieth Century Tragedies (1995) contains a complete draft, reviews by scholars, and correspondence with Fineman's publisher on the book's sales figures. There is also a substantial amount of material on The Autonomy Myth: A Theory of Dependency (2004), including a draft and notes on the book's structure. These files are arranged alphabetically by book title.

Other writings (Subseries 2.3) contain information on books Fineman edited or to which she contributed chapters. Some unpublished material is filed in this subseries. Arrangement is alphabetical.
