Overview

The essays in this volume map the concerns of gender onto the terrain of nation, finding significant connections, disjunctions, and tensions between them. The authors argue that gender must take center stage in any cultural analysis performed in the context of decolonized nation-space. Contributors explore gender as a point of crisis in the cultural, social, and political space of a nation. They attribute the existence of these crises to conflicts between gender, on the one hand, and the family, community, and nation on the other. These crises are then analyzed in terms of female identity, subjectivity, and agency within a narrative of historical modernity.
