Between Tradition, Counter Tradition and Heresy: Contributions in Honour of Vina Mazumdar

Kumud Sharma (Editor) Lotika Sarkar (Editor) Leela Kasturi (Editor)
Synopsis This volume provides perspectives on a range of issues in some key areas that have exercised scholars and activists in women’s studies for more than two decades. The richly diverse collection brings together contributions by some of the leading scholars in women’s studies who critically reflect on complex questions and challenges facing women’s studies and the women’s movement. The papers address issues such as legacies and futures of women’s studies, a theory of grassroots feminism, politics and practices within the family, kinship networks, marriage and motherhood and the ideologies that shape women’s worlds. The papers also discuss the challenges offered by political processes, fundamentalism and cultural constructions hostile to women. Some contributors have explored the relationship between articulations of the women’s question and the discourses on identity, citizenship and political participation. A few narratives reveal how the worldviews and perspectives of the authors have changed through research in women’s studies. Multidisciplinary and insightful, the 22 articles in the volume will be of interest to scholars and activists alike.
