Women's and Gender Studies in India: Crossings (Hardback)Anu Aneja (editor)
- Coming soon
This book frames the major debates and contemporary issues in women's and gender studies in India. It locates them in the context of key theories, their interlinkages, and significant crossings and overlaps within the field while juxtaposing feminist and queer perspectives.
The essays in the volume foreground emerging challenges as well as offer clues to future trajectories for women's and gender studies in the country through a comprehensive and interdisciplinary survey of intersectionality in gender, activism and theory; caste and class; feminist, queer and transgender studies; femininity and masculinity; disability; feminist pedagogy; and Indian and western feminisms. The volume traces how gender studies have shaped established social science as well as interpretive and representational discourses (psychoanalysis, literature, cinema, new media studies and folklore). It examines their strategic potential to transform these areas as also explore international contexts.
This book will be useful to students, teachers and researchers in women's studies, gender studies, cultural studies, queer studies, and South Asian studies.
