About this book

Drawing on ethnographic research with underrepresented communities in the Caribbean, Europe, South America, and the United States, this wide-ranging anthology examines the gendered dimensions of citizenship experiences and uses them as a point of departure for rethinking contemporary practices of social inclusion and national belonging.

Reviews

"This multi-sited and historically situated collection of essays offers a powerful testament to the richness of indigenous knowledges and personal narratives for reconceptualizing notions of citizenship and belonging. The editors have expertly framed the collection to highlight multilayered and gendered ways of knowing as they inform conceptualizations of sovereignty, culture, autonomy, diaspora, transnationalism, and social justice. I know of no other book that captures the range of feelings attached to the highly charged construction of citizenship, nor can I think of any other text that persuasively demonstrates the value of collaboration and collegial dialogue for advancing activist scholarship." - Nancy A. Naples, author of Feminism and Method: Ethnography, Discourse Analysis and Activist Research

"This is a very valuable and well thought-out collection. Gendered Citizenships offers a timely range of perspectives that pushes contemporary citizenship studies up a notch; a book that begs to be used in university classrooms across a range of disciplines including political science, sociology and cultural studies." - Abigail B. Bakan, Professor of Political Studies, Queen s University, Kingston, Canada
