Violence and Gender in the Globalized World expands the present discourse on gender and violence, discovering new ways to address the complexities encountered in academic research on the topic. Through the introduction of a variety of uncommonly discussed geopolitical sites and dynamics, the book redefines the critical picture of gender violence in the age of globalization, adopting diverse methodological approaches and various disciplinary praxes in its investigation of the question of violence against women across the globe. With an international team of contributors comprising both scholars and activists, this volume bridges the gap between academic and activist perspectives on gender violence. As such, it will be of interest to anyone conducting research in the areas of gender and sexuality, human rights, cultural studies, political science, history, postcolonialism and colonialism, sociology, anthropology, philosophy and religion.

'This book includes timely insights from a range of scholars and activists on the contemporary intersections of gender and violence. The authors offer historicized perspectives on agency and power, and contribute to a critical set of discourses about a world where the relationship between states, gender and mobility is tangible, changing, and always in question.' Svati P. Shah, Wellesley College, USA '...the book brings visibility to uncommonly considered parts of the globe besides lesser-known forms of violence, thus extending definitions of gender violence itself for scholars, activists, and students alike...it is the diversity and freshness of the ethnographic contexts drawn on that make this volume compelling.' Journal of the Royal Anthropological InstituteAbout the Author:
