About this book

This collection brings together key theoretical issues and rich ethnographic cases in the feminist anthropology of Latin America in order to explore the ways that 'place' - understood both geographically and metaphorically - can serve as a key vehicle for analyzing the cultural, social, and historical specificity of gender relations and ideologies. Like Dorothy Hodgson's volume, Gendered Modernities, the book seeks to unite ethnographic specificity with theoretical cohesion in a way that demonstrates the unique contribution that anthropology can make to gender and area studies.

Reviews

'Gender's Place is a big rich collection that reminds us once again of how central gender is to a wide range of issues, and how important it is to look at gender in real times and places. Moving through many Latin American nations, and looking at everything from streets to states, from democratization to domestic violence, from borders to bodies, the book will be indispensable to feminist academics, activists, and audiences everywhere'. - Sherry B. Ortner, Columbia University

'A daring and creative proposal that opens new conceptual horizons in gender studies and breaks with the universalizing assumptions (machismo-marianismo, public-private, indigenous culture-dominant culture) that have to this day pervaded gender studies in Latin America'. - Norma Fuller, Pontificia Universidad Católica del Perú

'...the result is an edited volume that successfully extends the importance of classrooms, homes, streets, factories, haciendas...' - K.S. Fine-Dare, Choice
