9780754638780: (Un)thinking Citizenship: Feminist Debates in Contemporary South Africa (Gender in a Global/Local World)

The study of citizenship in the context of South Africa implicitly challenges the rights-based democracy in South Africa, while literature regarding women and citizenship has greatly contributed to a new understanding of citizenship. Locally, many global processes are reproduced in the discourse of rights-claiming, issues of institutional representation, bodily integrity in the face of violence, and care in the face of a lack of care. This volume takes the debate of citizenship in South Africa in a more theoretical and empirical direction while engaging with knowledge produced elsewhere in the world. As part of the Gender in a Local/Global World series, it investigates the making of gendered citizenship, institutionalization of gender politics, the state of gendered policy making, local citizenship, rights, the women's movement, gendered violence, as well as citizenship and the body.

Review:

'This new text boasts a cast of some of South Africa's strongest feminist academics across a spectrum of disciplines. Based on rigorous scholarship and informed by cutting edge theories and debates on gender and citizenship, this impressive collection is warmly welcomed in the still marginalised arena of feminist knowledge production and the continued under-representation of women's voices in academic publishing. A critically reflective text of this nature is certainly timely as we near the end of the first decade of democracy.' Tammy Shefer, University of the Western Cape, South Africa 'This book is a most valuable addition to the literature on citizenship. Written from the perspective of the complex newly emerging South African democracy, the authors are able to nuance and enrich the global discussion on this topic, and also to widen the issues that should be addressed under the rubric of citizenship. A must-read for anybody interested in citizenship and in gender politics.' Selma Sevenhuijsen, Utrecht University, The Netherlands 'Unthinking Citizenship is a timely collection in which leading feminist thinkers interrogate the limits of liberal democratic notions of citizenship. The post-apartheid South African context provides an ideal case study...This is a valuable and provocative resource for all those concerned with social justice and quality agendas, and essential reading for those who would still relegate gender to the margins of contemporary social and political theory.' Amina Mama, University of Cape Town, South Africa 'This is a tremendously exciting collection of essays: diverse, vigorous, wonderfully accessible, but at the same time provocative, challenging and well-documented...this collection ought to be required reading for every thinking lawyer. It is simply sensational, both an important contribution to debates over the meaning of citizenship, and a pleasure to read.' Law Society Journal '...the collection will undoubtedly be an invaluable resource for scholars, graduate students and activists interested in exploring the limits of liberal citizenship in a developing democracy.' African Affairs 'Professor Amanda Gouws has edited a remarkable collection of essays analyzing the evolving and contested meanings of women's citizneship in the newly democratic South Africa...a significant strength of the text is that many of the authors reference other essays included in the volume and in these moments expand the debate about the multiple meanings and sites of citizenship...[The book] is a tremendous contribution to the growing literature on women as political subjects in post-colonial sub-Saharan Africa. The text has wide appeal for readers in contemporary debates in political theory, feminist theory and comparative politics.' Journal of Women, Politics and Policy 'We have here a collection of important and thought-provoking essays which raise and deal with issues that lie at the heart of South African society...It is the theoretical nature of this book which makes it a useful and important contribution to the literature on citizenship, gender and feminism. Its value will appeal across borders: the issues dealt with are universal...' Politikon 'This important collection of feminist scholarship on the gendered experience of citizenship speaks specifically to the context of South Africa while acknowledging broader transnational forces such as globalization and neo-liberalism.' International Feminist Journal of Politics
