Gender and Nation (Paperback): Nira Yuval-Davis Gender and Nation (Paperback)
Nira Yuval-Davis
R847 R773 Discovery Miles 7 730 Save R74 (9%) In stock

Exploring gender relations and the ways they affect and are affected by national projects and processes, Nira Yuval-Davis argues that the constructions of nationhood usually involve specific notions of both æmanhoodÆ and æwomanhood,Æ although their explicit inclusion in the analytical discourse around nations and nationalisms is only a very recent endeavor. She promotes this analytical project by examining systematically the crucial contribution of gender relations into several major dimensions of nationalist projectsùnational reproduction, national culture, citizenship, as well as national conflicts and wars. The author sharply differentiates national projects from ænation-statesÆ and she emphasizes that membership on ænationsÆ can be sub-, super-, and cross-states. Gender and Nation is an important contribution to the debates on citizenship, gender, and nationhood. Gender and Nation will be essential reading for academics and students of womenÆs studies, race and ethnic studies, sociology, and political studies.

Controlling national borders has once again become a key concern of contemporary states and a highly contentious issue in social and political life. But controlling borders is about much more than patrolling territorial boundaries at the edges of states: it now comprises a multitude of practices and processes taking place at different levels, some spatial and some virtual, some at the edges of states and some in the local contexts of everyday life - in workplaces, in hospitals, in schools - which, taken together, construct, reproduce and contest borders and the rights and obligations associated with belonging to a nation-state. This book is a systematic exploration of the practices and processes that now define state bordering and the role it plays in national and global governance. Based on original research, it goes well beyond traditional approaches to the study of migration and racism, showing how these processes affect all members of society, not just the marginalized others. Many ordinary citizens are now required by states to carry out border guarding activities in their daily interactions with others. These include truck drivers and airline staff evicting people seeking to cross state borders as well as employers, landlords and public service administrators filtering people within territories. The uncertainties arising from these processes mean that more and more people around the world find themselves living in grey zones, excluded from any form of protection and often denied basic human rights. This richly documented account of how bordering has become dispersed into the interstices of everyday life will be of great interest to students and scholars in sociology, anthropology, politics and geography and to anyone concerned with the changing character of governance and belonging today.

"This is an in-depth examination of a slippery and contradictory subject. Knowledge alone is not enough for this type of project. It takes breaking out of narrow conceptual cages and unsettling what we think of as stable meanings. The author brings all of this to life in often unforgettable ways." - Saskia Sassen, Professor, Columbia University "National identities were once taken largely for granted in social science. Now they are part of an even more complex 'politics of belonging' that challenges both public affairs and the categories of social science. Nira Yuval-Davis offers a nuanced account that will be important for scholars and all those concerned with contemporary politics." - Craig Calhoun, Director, LSE This is a cutting-edge investigation of the challenging debates around belonging and the politics of belonging. Alongside the hegemonic forms of citizenship and nationalism which have tended to dominate our recent political and social history, Nira Yuval-Davis examines alternative contemporary political projects of belonging constructed around the notions of religion, cosmopolitanism and the feminist 'ethics of care'. The book also explores the effects of globalization, mass migration, the rise of both fundamentalist and human rights movements on such politics of belonging, as well as some of its racialized and gendered dimensions. A special space is given to the various feminist political movements that have been engaged as part of or in resistance to the political projects of belonging. Yuval-Davis deconstructs notions of national and ethnic and interrogates the effects that different political projects of belonging have on members of these collectivities who are differentially located socially, economically and politically.

This book is about Avishai Ehrlich, his life's work in political sociology, his contribution to the field of sociology in Israel and his role as a public intellectual. The chapters include some of his articles, commentaries on his work and his public activism, and personal experiences and memories of Avishai as teacher and friend.

Women Against Fundamentalism - Stories of Dissent and Solidarity (Paperback): Sukhwant Dhaliwal, Nira Yuval-Davis Women Against Fundamentalism - Stories of Dissent and Solidarity (Paperback)

R409 Discovery Miles 4 090 Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

2014 is WAF's 25th anniversary year, and this book maps the development of the organisation over the past 25 years, through the life stories and political reflections of some of its members. It focuses on the ways in which lived contradictions have been reflected in their politics. Their stories describe the pathways that led them to WAF, and the role WAF has played in their lives and in the different forms of politicial activism in which they have engaged. Discussing feminist activism from a wide variety of different ethnic and religious backgrounds, contributors highlight the complex relationships of belonging that are at the heart of contemporary social life - including the problems of exclusionary political projects of belonging. They also explore the ways in which anti-fundamentalism relates to broader feminist, anti-racist and other emancipatory political ideologies and movements. The personal stories at the centre of this book are those of women whose lives enact the complexities of multiple (if shifting and contingent) mutually constitutive axes of power and difference. Much of their concerns therefore relate to crossing the boundaries of collectivity and practising a 'dialogical transversal politics' that has developed as an alternative to identity politics.

Nira Yuval-Davis provides an authoritative overview and critique of writings on gender and nationhood, presenting an original analysis of the ways gender relations affect and are affected by national projects and processes. In Gender and Nation Yuval-Davis argues that the construction of nationhood involves specific notions of both `manhood' and `womanhood'. She examines the contribution of gender relations to key dimensions of nationalist projects - the nation's reproduction, its culture and citizenship - as well as to national conflicts and wars, exploring the contesting relations between feminism and nationalism. Gender and Nation is an important contribution to the debates on citizenship, gender and nationhood. It will be essential reading for academics and students of women's studies, race and ethnic studies, sociology and political science.

The collapse of authoritarian regimes in Eastern Europe and recent uncertainties about the future direction and membership of European Community have had a profound impact on the lives of millions of women. Thinking about citizenship helps us to understand these changes yet usually such concepts include almost everything but gender. As the contributions in this book show, adding gender shifts our assumptions about identity, the state, community, the family, economic agency, territory, rights and duties. In this book feminists from across Europe draw on their diverse experiences to address the key issues of race, nationalism, sexual politics and the future of the Left. Their contrasting histories and the current economic and political turmoil give it an added urgency.

Daiva K. Stasiulis, Nira Yuval-Davis
R1,041 Discovery Miles 10 410 Special order

`Settler societies' are those in which Europeans have settled and become politically dominant over indigenous people, and where a heterogenous society has developed in class, ethnic and racial terms. They offer a unique prism for understanding the complex relations of gender, race, ethnicity and class in contemporary societies. Unsettling Settler Societies brings together a distinguished cast of contributors to explore these relations in both material and discursive terms. They look at the relation between indigenous and settler/immigrant populations, focusing in particular on women's conditions and politics. The book examines how the process of development of settler societies, and the positions of indigenous and migrant peoples within them, reflects the place of these societies (New Zealand, Australia, Canada, the United States, Mexico, Peru, South Africa, Zimbabwe, Algeria and Israel) within a global economy.

The range - geographically, thematically and theoretically - covered by the chapters reflects current concerns in the world today. A timely contribution to the ongoing debates in the field, it will be a valuable companion to scholars working in the areas of multiculturalism, globalisation and culture, race and ethnic studies, gender studies and studies of post-partition societies.

Racialized Bordering Discourses on European Roma (Paperback): Nira Yuval-Davis, Georgie Wemyss, Kathryn Cassidy Racialized Bordering Discourses on European Roma (Paperback)
Nira Yuval-Davis, Georgie Wemyss, Kathryn Cassidy
R849 Discovery Miles 8 490 Special order

Using detailed examples from Finland, Hungary, Canada and the UK, this book explores relationships between the racialization and discrimination experienced by heterogeneous European Roma populations, and the processes of everyday bordering embedded in state policies and media discourses. In the context of the long histories of discrimination experienced by Roma people across Europe, the chapters engage with changing EU policies, including the recent tensions between inter-European de-bordering and the selective immigration policies introduced as different states react to EU free movement. Employing an intersectional analysis, the authors capture the perspectives of differentially situated people and associated discourses to examine the continuing racism experienced by European Roma citizens in their interaction with bordering technologies. They examine the homogenizing `racial othering' and construction of Roma as a `criminal category' that co-exists with the differentiations made between `indigenous' and `migrant' Roma central to dominant bordering discourses and the contestations of different Roma populations. Chapters focus on Roma activism and the media, the exclusion of Roma residents via urban regeneration and welfare provision, and powerful media and political discourses about Roma populations in different national and transnational contexts. This book was originally published as a special issue of Ethnic and Racial Studies.

Women, Citizenship and Difference (Hardcover): Pnina Werbner, Nira Yuval-Davis Women, Citizenship and Difference (Hardcover)
Pnina Werbner, Nira Yuval-Davis
R1,883 Discovery Miles 18 830 Special order

This book makes an important contribution towards an understanding of citizenship as mediated by other collective, historically determined identities: of gender, ethnicity, class and national status. It brings together a group of prominent international scholars from moral philosophy, law, political science and sociology to offer a major reconceptualization of the idea of citizenship. Throughout, the book is concerned with the current dismantling of welfare states, the attack on civil society and the rise in state terror and religious and cultural findamentalisms. The contributors demonstrate how the growing ambivalence of state sovereignty in the face of multi-national capitalism and the absence of political accountability structures are complicit in the definitions of gendered citizenship. Against these, women's communal mobilization and political activism are considered in terms of their power effects and political potentialities; the book as a whole shows the need to negotiate and transcend difference and to find means for creating alliances across differences. The most comprehensive, comparative statement on the present state of the gender and citizenship debate available, this book will be necessary reading for students and academics of nationalism, citizenship, human rights, globalization and women's studies.
