Discrepant Dislocations: Feminism, Theory and The Post-Colonial Histories

Mary E. John (Author)
Synopsis "This book suggests that western feminists need to reconsider what they are out to learn from the distant places they visit, while feminists in India stand to gain from a more critical and heterogeneous sense of conflict within American feminism today. Following the initial chapter which positions the author within US academic culture, the second chapter discusses the possibilities and constraints governing the 'travel' of theories such as deconstruction and psychoanalysis; the next chapter focuses critically on the potential of gender as a new analytical category ostensibly more open to questions of difference and power relations among women. The final chapter offers a historical analysis of the emergence of feminist scholarship in India from the 1970s to the present. In each case, Mary John suggests that feminists situate themselves and their work through a politics of location, to counter global forces that are suppressing new and ongoing inequalities between the west and the postcolony. In offering a powerful politics of place, Mary John affirms an alternative way for feminists to engage in dialogue across cultures. Discrepant Dislocations is a major intervention in feminist and postcolonial theory, cultural criticism and anthropology."
