Description & Coverage
Description:

In the past century, South Asia underwent fundamental cultural, social, and political changes as many countries progressed from colonial dominations through nationalist movements to independence. These transformations have been intricately bound up with the spatiality of social life in the region, drawing further attention to the significance of social spaces within transformative politics and identity formations.

Gender, Place, and Identity of South Asian Women studies contemporary literature of South Asian women with a focus on gender, place, and identity. It contributes to the debate on gender identity and equality, spatial and social justice, women empowerment, marginalization, and anti-discrimination measures. Covering topics such as partition memory narrative, spatial mobility, and diasporic women’s lives, this book is an essential resource for students and educators of higher education, researchers, activists, government officials, business leaders, academicians, feminist organizations, sociologists, and researchers.

Reviews & Statements

The characters in the book reveal how women have gained subjectivity, and agency by subverting and challenging normative, essentialist, binary discourses on gender and sexuality. It is done through the ideas, discourses and theories on Gender, space and identity. The papers highlight how feminism arrived late on the scene of South Asia.
