MEDIA REVIEWS
"Reaching across a broad range of religious traditions and diverse disciplines, this splendid collection of essays breaks new ground in bringing postcolonial insights to a study of gender and religion. Equally important, the volume also compels postcolonial studies to take note of religion's role in sustaining colonial ideologies. The individual essays offer absorbing case studies about the power of religious discourse in containing feminist aspirations, while, in other instances, providing a liberatory ethics. Collectively, the contributors to "Postcolonialism, Feminism, and Religious Discourse boldly advance our understanding of how a feminist politics for the future is inseparable from a decolonization of religious ideologies."
-Gauri Viswanathan, Columbia University, author of "Outside the Fold: Conversion, Modernity, and Belief
"A path-breaking collection of essays that deserves a wide readership. This multicultural and multireligious anthology advocates a radical epistemological shift and opens up a new direction of research not only in religious studies but also in women's and postcolonial studies. A must read for anyone interested in emancipatory theory, ethics, and religion."
-Elisabeth Schussler Fiorenza, Harvard Divinity School
"This collection of essays opens up a new direction in postcolonial studies as well as in women's studies in religion. Until recently feminist scholars who are interested in postcolonialism widely ignored the importance of religion to the sex/gender systems in the context of colonialism. At the same time, postcolonial studies of religion have hardly included the gender perspective. This gap is partly filled now....Authors from variousreligions, cultural and academic backgrounds share their critiques of the way religious and feminist knowledge is constructed as well as new and more productive visions for the development of discourses of liberation which no longer justify racism, sexism and colonialism."
