9780520070936: Gender at the Crossroads of Knowledge: Feminist Anthropology in the Postmodern Era

Gender at the Crossroads of Knowledge brings feminist anthropology up to date, highlighting the theoretical sophistication that characterizes recent research. Twelve essays by outstanding scholars, written with the volume's concerns specifically in mind, range across the broadest anthropological terrain, assessing and contributing to feminist work on biological anthropology, primate studies, global economy, new reproductive technologies, ethno-linguistics, race and gender, and more. The editor's introduction not only sets two decades of feminist anthropological work in the multiple contexts of changes in anthropological theory and practice, political and economic developments, and larger intellectual shifts, but also lays out the central insights feminist anthropology has to offer us in the postmodern era. The profound issues raised by the authors resonate with the basic interests of any discipline concerned with gender, that is, all of the social sciences and humanities.

From the Inside Flap:

"Gender at the Crossroads of Knowledge offers us much more than a sampling of current work in feminist anthropology. . . . Taken together, the chapters ought to convince readers that feminist anthropology is a force to be reckoned with in the reshaping of our intellectual life. It presents a challenge to the familiar conceptual categories out of which not only our theories but also our everyday experience are built. . . . Feminist anthropology has a very important analytical position in gender studies generally. . . . This volume will do a good job of presenting anthropological contributions to non-anthropological audiences."—Rena Lederman, Princeton University
