Survival is a weighted and layered term, able to conjure up phrases as distant as the scientific “survival of the fittest” and the popular “I will survive.” It is both a metaphor and a biological urge, extending through worlds of meaning. WSQ: Survival explores these worlds, focusing on the politics and ethics of survival in both contemporary and classic feminist texts.
