Material type: materialTypeLabelBookSeries: Citizenship, gender and diversity. Publisher: UK Palgrave Macmillan 2016Description: xvii, 312 p.ISBN: 9781137517654.Subject(s): Gendered Citizenship | Globalization | DemocracyDDC classification: 300 Online resources: ebook Summary: This book sheds new light on gender-based inequalities in a globalized world. Interdisciplinary in scope, it reveals new avenues of research on gendered citizenship, analysing the possibilities and pitfalls of being represented and of representing someone. Drawing on contexts both historical and contemporary, it queries what it means to have access to representation, which power structures regulate and produce representation, and who counts as a citizen. Situating its arguments in the global struggle for hegemony, it answers such thought-provoking questions as whether one can represent someone or be represented without recourse to citizenship and, conversely, whether it is possible to be a citizen if one does not have access to representation. This engaging edited collection will appeal to students and scholars of sociology, social anthropology, history, media studies, political science, literature, gender studies and cultural studies. https://ebookcentral.proquest.com/lib/iimahd/detail.action?docID=4720599
