Excluding the petty and grotesque: depicting women in early twentieth century Marathi theatre/Sudhanva Deshpande. Index. "This book is a part of the ongoing project by women to write themselves back into the historical and social canvas. The present collection of essays takes pride in being a part of this vital process of correcting gender imbalances in centuries old patriarchal structures. However, in many ways, these essays also go beyond the agenda of salvage or retrieval from patriarchal registers. Besides re-opening texts in which even female voices echo the males, the authors also explore the subjectivity of women through the mode of fiction, art, the media and oral traditions. While many of the recent publications under the genre of women’s studies have focussed on women in a generic sense, the present collection is centred around the theme of images and self-images of Indian women. The former implies, by and large, male agency in the imaging of women while the latter signifies a subjective and self-reflexive exercise by women. It is hoped that these essays will provide feminists exploring fresh areas of research on women with methodological insights into how traditional as well as non-conventional sources could be used to deconstruct existing images of women and in doing so, re-present women in fresh and hitherto unperceived ways."

Sinopsis:

This book is part of the ongoing project by women to write themselves back into the historical and social canvas. The present collection of essays takes pride in being a part of this vital process of correcting gender imbalances in centuries old patriarchal structures. However, in many ways, these essays also go beyond the agenda of salvage or retrieval from patriarchal registers. Besides re-opening texts in which even female voices echo the males, the authors also explore the subjectivity of women through the mode of fiction, art, the media and oral traditions.
