9781565492073: Women and the Politics of Place

* Highlights the interrelations between place, gender, politics, and justice.
* Draws upon women's place-based experiences across the globe.

In Women and the Politics of Place, Wendy Harcourt and Arturo Escobar analyze women's economic and social justice movements by challenging traditional views. The authors reveal how an interrelated set of transformations around body, environment, and the economy factors into place-based practices of women and how these provide alternative ways of advancement in these mobilizations.

The book develops a conceptual framework based on the most current debates in anthropology, geography, ecology, feminist, and development studies. This guides academics, activists, and policymakers toward an understanding of how women are politically negotiating globalization.

Also featured are the experiences of women working to defend their homelands on isses such as reproductive rights, land and community, rural and urban environments, and global capital. Written for wide use by academics, students, and practitioners, Women and the Politics of Place bridges the division between academic and activist knowledge with an original analysis of global feminist issues.

About the Author:

Arturo Escobar is a professor of Anthropology at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. He is author of the influential book Encountering Development-The Making and Unmaking of the Third World. His recent research has focused on the intersection among development, capital, and social movements in the Colombian Pacific region. Specifically, he is concerned with looking in the context of the transnational debates on rainforest political ecology and biodiversity conservation.

Review:

"Providing important insights for feminist theory and globalization studies, Women and the Politics of Place takes us into the often neglected realms of globalization found in concrete places, organizations, and women's bodies that highlight affirmative initiatives to improve life and meet basic needs. This book is a welcome and sophisticated tool for understanding the places of women in the ever-evolving spaces of contemporary global politics and culture."

"All of the essays point to existing practices within place-based women’s struggles that represent both resistance and place-based alternatives to the presumed hegemony of patriarchal neoliberal globalization. As Alvarez points out, the volume contributes immensely to the awaremess of the global ‘in place’ while also helping to "disturb place-based strategies" that may only be suffocating for women or apologias for the maintainance of power asymmetries...Highly recommended."

"Explores the experiences of women across a wide cross-section of political realities of power. The voices of these women speak eloquently, demonstrating the value of their experience. This is particularly important in a time when global entities seem to promote free-market Darwinism as a viable response to world poverty and inequality... brings home the connectedness of movements in a profound way."
