About this book

This book sheds new light on gender-based inequalities in a globalized world. Interdisciplinary in scope, it reveals new avenues of research on gendered citizenship, analysing the possibilities and pitfalls of being represented and of representing someone. Drawing on contexts both historical and contemporary, it queries what it means to have access to representation, which power structures regulate and produce representation, and who counts as a citizen. Situating its arguments in the global struggle for hegemony, it answers such thought-provoking questions as whether one can represent someone or be represented without recourse to citizenship and, conversely, whether it is possible to be a citizen if one does not have access to representation. This engaging edited collection will appeal to students and scholars of sociology, social anthropology, history, media studies, political science, literature, gender studies and cultural studies.

Reviews

“This wide-ranging, richly documented set of essays opens new ways of understanding the history of women’s claims for political rights, the obstacles that have prevented their realization, and the strategies that might be devised to bring about change.” (Joan Scott Professor Emerita School of Social Science Institute for Advanced Study Princeton NJ and Adjunct Professor of History, The Graduate Center of the City University of New York)

“The multi-disciplinary feminist perspectives captured in this book add new perspectives on issues of representation and re-presentation. For scholars in the global South still grappling with Spivak’s question whether “the subaltern can speak” this book will be a timely return to that question through the problematization of exclusions, also of the radically un-representable who might speak back.” (Amanda Gouws, Distinguished Professor and SARChi Chair of Gender Politics, Department of Political Science, University of Stellenbosch, South Africa)

“This is one of the few volumes I know that addresses gendered representation across disciplines and theoretical perspectives. The outcome is a fully comprehensive, sophisticated and rigorous narrative on the complex intersections between representation and gender. An inspiring book!” (Professor Lilie Chouliaraki, Department of Media and Communications, London School of Economics and Political Science, Houghton Street,  London, WC2A 2AE, UK)

“Gendered Citizenship and the Politics of Representation includes bold, fresh and critical analyses of citizenship, representation, and inclusion through a variety of perspectives. This exciting volume expands the debates over gendered citizenship to new contexts, bringing together important social science and humanities perspectives.” (Aili Mari Tripp Professor of Political Science and Gender & Women’s Studies, University of Wisconsin, US)
