9780822336419: Zapotec Women: Gender, Class, and Ethnicity in Globalized Oaxaca
Críticas:

"After it first appeared, Zapotec Women quickly became a must-read in the fields of gender and Latin American studies, and today it can fairly be regarded as a classic. This thoroughly revised edition is a tour-de-force. Not content merely to add a few pages at the beginning or end of chapters, Lynn Stephen has rethought several key conceptual frameworks and reconsidered the changes experienced in Teotitlan del Valle over the past twenty years."-- Matthew C. Gutmann, editor of Changing Men and Masculinities in Latin America "This book is a light in the darkness. The author is a brilliant weaver who, with great expertise, intertwines the fine threads of gender, class, ethnicity, nationality, age, and art, rendering a magnificent tapestry. A rigorous anthropology of Zapotec women in a socio-historical context, the work also surprises by contemplating the aesthetic component of the sarapes created by the artisans of Teotitlan del Valle, Oaxaca."--Eli Bartra, editor of Crafting Gender: Women and Folk Art in Latin America and the Caribbean "In Zapotec Women, Lynn Stephen presents a complex analysis of stereotypically strong women. She situates women's independence, forged in daily life, in Zapotec tradition that is framed by state sponsored images of 'Mexican Indians' and market transformations that have regional, national, and international dimensions. Stephen's compelling analysis illuminates class, ethnic, and gender relations that are unexpected and contingent. She renders these social processes beautifully, leaving the reader with an appreciation of individual lives in the context of global transformation."--Patricia Zavella, coeditor of Chicana Feminisms: A Critical Reader "How wonderful that this second edition of Zapotec Women is available! So well written and blessedly lacking in jargon, it comprehensively explains the evolution of women's cooperatives in Teotitlan, including their interactions with the Mexican state and NGOs, and the effects of transnational forces like NAFTA and increased migration to the United States."--Jean Jackson, coeditor of Indigenous Movements, Self-Representation, and the State in Latin America "While the work is listed as a second edition, revised and updated, it has so many significant changes that it could be considered as an entirely new work. The author presents an effective, nuanced analysis that should be refreshing to anyone who enjoys really exploring the reality and identity of women in another culture at the beginning of the twenty-first century."--Peaceful Societies

Reseña del editor:

In this extensively revised and updated second edition of her classic ethnography, Lynn Stephen explores the intersection of gender, class, and indigenous ethnicity in southern Mexico. She provides a detailed study of how the lives of women weavers and merchants in the Zapotec-speaking town of Teotitlan del Valle in Oaxaca, Mexico have changed in response to the international demand for Oaxacan textiles. Based on Stephen's research in Teotitlan during the mid-1980s, 1990, and between 2001 and 2004, this volume provides a unique view of a Zapotec community balancing a rapidly advancing future in export production with an entrenched past anchored in indigenous culture. Stephen presents new information about the weaving cooperatives women have formed over the last two decades in an attempt to gain political and cultural rights within their community and standing as independent artisans within the global market. She also addresses the place of Zapotec weaving within Mexican folk art and the significance of increased migration out of Teotitlan. The women weavers and merchants collaborated with Stephen on the research for this book, and their perspectives are key to her analysis of how gender relations have changed within rituals, weaving production and marketing, local politics, and family life. Drawing on the experiences of women in Teotitlan, Stephen considers the prospects for the political, economic, and cultural participation of other indigenous women in Mexico under the policies of economic neo-liberalism which have prevailed since the 1990s.
