Bringing together classic and new writings of the trailblazing feminist theorist Chandra Talpade Mohanty, Feminism without Borders addresses some of the most pressing and complex issues facing contemporary feminism. Forging vital links between daily life and collective action and between theory and pedagogy, Mohanty has been at the vanguard of Third World and international feminist thought and activism for nearly two decades. This collection highlights the concerns running throughout her pioneering work: the politics of difference and solidarity, decolonizing and democratizing feminist practice, the crossing of borders, and the relation of feminist knowledge and scholarship to organizing and social movements. Mohanty offers here a sustained critique of globalization and urges a reorientation of transnational feminist practice toward anticapitalist struggles. Feminism without Borders opens with Mohanty's influential critique of western feminism ("Under Western Eyes") and closes with a reconsideration of that piece based on her latest thinking regarding the ways that gender matters in the racial, class, and national formations of globalization. In between these essays, Mohanty meditates on the lives of women workers at different ends of the global assembly line (in India, the United Kingdom, and the United States); feminist writing on experience, identity, and community; dominant conceptions of multiculturalism and citizenship; and the corporatization of the North American academy. She considers the evolution of interdisciplinary programs like Women's Studies and Race and Ethnic Studies; pedagogies of accommodation and dissent; and transnational women's movements for grassroots ecological solutions and consumer, health, and reproductive rights. Mohanty's probing and provocative analyses of key concepts in feminist thought—"home," "sisterhood," "experience," "community"—lead the way toward a feminism without borders, a feminism fully engaged with the realities of a transnational world.

This book explores the extent to which women have been initiators, mobilizers, and driving forces of social transformation in China. The book considers how conceptions of women’s roles have changed as China has moved from state socialism to engagement with capitalist globalization, examines the growth of women’s gender and sexual consciousness and social movements for women’s rights, including for marginalized social and sex/gender grouops, and discusses women’s roles in society-state interactions, including many forms of social activism, cultural events, educational innovations, and more. Overall, the book demonstrates that women have not simply been passive receivers of the consequences of the forces of global capitalism, but that they have had a profound, active impact on social transformation in China.

Coopted by military operations, humanitarianism has never been neutral. Rather than welcoming refugees, host countries assess the relative risks of taking them in versus turning them away, using a risk-benefit analysis that often reduces refugees to collateral damage in proxy wars fought in the war on terrorism. Carceral Humanitarianism testifies that humanitarian aid and human rights discourse are always political and partisan. Forerunners is a thought-in-process series of breakthrough digital works. Written between fresh ideas and finished books, Forerunners draws on scholarly work initiated in notable blogs, social media, conference plenaries, journal articles, and the synergy of academic exchange. This is gray literature publishing: where intense thinking, change, and speculation take place in scholarship.

Prekarisierung, Verelendung und Armut sind zu den Schlagwörtern der politischen Debatte des frühen 21. Jahrhunderts geworden. Während in den 1990er Jahren über die Feminisierung von Armut im Globalen Süden diskutiert wurde, ist die Armut zwischenzeitlich in den Ländern des Globalen Nordens angekommen. Ziel des Buches ist es, diese komplexen Wandlungsprozesse in den Bereichen Arbeit, Migration und Sicherheit aus einer Geschlechterperspektive zu untersuchen und dabei nach Möglichkeiten der politischen Teilhabe zu fragen.

Thomas Pogge’s book explains why so many of the wealthy believe that they have no responsibility for the elimination of poverty even though a degree of income transfer seems morally required. The theories of the wealthy are seemingly disconnected from poverty in other countries. Pogge dispatches with this illusion and suggests a realistic standard of global economic justice.

This wide-ranging collection of essays elaborates on some of the most pressing issues in contemporary postcolonial society in their transition from conflict and contestation to dialogue and resolution. It explores from new angles questions of violent conflict, forced migration, trafficking and deportation, human rights, citizenship, transitional justice and cosmopolitanism. The volume focuses more specifically on the gendering of violence from a postcolonial perspective as it analyses unique cases that disrupt traditional visions of violence by including the history of empire and colony, and its legacies that continue to influence present-day configurations of gender, race, nationality, class and sexuality. Part One maps out the gendered and racialized contours of conflict zones, from war zones, prisons and refugee camps to peacekeeping missions and humanitarian aid, reframing the field and establishing connections between colonial legacies and postcolonial dynamics. Part Two explores how these conflict zones are played out not just outside but also within Europe, demonstrating that multicultural Europe is fraught with different legacies of violence and postcolonial melancholia. Part Three gives an idea of the kind of future that can be offered to post-conflict societies, defined as contact zones, by exploring opportunities for dialogue, restoration and reconciliation that can be envisaged from a gendered and postcolonial perspective through alternative feminist practices and the work of art and their redemptive power in mobilizing social change or increasing national healing processes. Though strongly anchored in postcolonial critique, the chapters draw from a range of traditions and expertise, including conflict studies, gender theory, visual studies, (new) media theory, sociology, race theory, international security studies and religion studies.

Sexualität und Gender werden immer wieder zu Schauplätzen intensiver, zum Teil hoch affektiver politischer Auseinandersetzungen. Ob es um die Thematisierung sexueller und geschlechtlicher Vielfalt in der Schule oder die Gender Studies an den Hochschulen geht - stets richtet sich der Protest gegen post-essentialistische Sexualitäts- und Genderkonzepte und stets ist er von Gesten heldenhaften Tabubruchs und Anti-Etatismus begleitet. Dieses Buch versammelt erstmals sozial- und kulturwissenschaftliche Analysen zum so genannten »Anti-Genderismus« im deutschsprachigen und europäischen Kontext. Die Beiträge zeigen, dass die Diffamierungen bisweilen auch Verknüpfungen etwa mit christlich-fundamentalistischen Strömungen oder mit der Neuen Rechten aufweisen.

Dass Frauen in linksterroristischen Gruppen aktiv waren und den bewaffneten Kampf befürworteten, rief in den 1970er-Jahren massive Verunsicherungen hervor. Dominique Grisard analysiert am Beispiel des Linksterrorismus in der Schweiz vergeschlechtlichte Sicherheitsdiskurse, die das Phänomen Terrorismus mit der "pervertierten" Emanzipation ausländischer Frauen verknüpften. Über die Abgrenzung von der Figur der maskulinen, ausländischen Terroristin versicherten sich der Staat und seine Bürger des "Eigenen", nämlich einer bürgerlichen Geschlechterordnung, die aus Beschützern der Nation und ihren Frauen und Kindern bestand.

Die Studie stellt das für die Ideengeschichte und die politische Praxis zentrale Konzept der Souveränität infrage. Denn dieses Konzept wird durch die »Ironie der Geschichte« im Grunde obsolet: Das staatliche Gewaltmonopol, so zeigt Daniel Loick anhand der Entwicklung des modernen Souveränitätsbegriffs, schließt immer auch ein Element nicht zu rechtfertigender Gewalt ein. Das gilt selbst für Formen demokratisch oder deliberativ legitimierter Souveränität. Vor dem Hintergrund der realen Umbrüche innerhalb der internationalen politischen Institutionen fragt er nach Möglichkeiten, das Konzept der Souveränität zu überwinden: Wie lässt sich der gesellschaftliche Zusammenhalt auf andere Art sichern als mit Mitteln der Gewalt?

The Oxford Handbook of Postcolonial Studies provides a comprehensive overview of the latest scholarship in postcolonial studies, while also considering possible future developments in the field. Original chapters written by a worldwide team of contritbuors are organised into five cross-referenced sections, 'The Imperial Past', 'The Colonial Present', 'Theory and Practice', 'Across the Disciplines', and 'Across the World'. The chapters offer both country-specific and comparative approaches to current issues, offering a wide range of new and interesting perspectives. The Handbook reflects the increasingly multidisciplinary nature of postcolonial studies and reiterates its continuing relevance to the study of both the colonial past, in its multiple manifestations, and the contemporary globalized world. Taken together, these essays, the dialogues they pursue, and the editorial comments that surround them constitute nothing less than a blueprint for the future of a much-contested but intellectually vibrant and politically engaged field.
