Gendering Material Culture: Representations and Practice

Subhadra Mitra Channa (Editor) Kamal K. Mishra (Editor)

This book re-examines some of the theoretical debates centring on culture and its manifestations in the material world; that is also perceived as gendered. The papers presented here examine the variety of manifestations of the concepts of materialism and take a critical look at the notion of an ?object?, showing that ?object? is a manifestation and a construct, both symbolic and rooted in praxis.
