Especially queer theory and Black feminism have produced substantial amount of critiques on the Western, white, middle-class and heterosexist hegemonic account of feminist theory as described in many feminist overview books and articles, also pointing out how these knowledge formations relate to the socio-cultural material power of the West. They argue for an historiographical account that fully takes Black and queer theory on board, not putting them in mere brackets or footnotes next to white hegemonic feminism. Hypertext might be a tool to partly accomplish this goal, rendering the traditional hierarchy in academic texts between main text and footnotes unclear.
