Synopsis: This is a book about embodiment and identity in the context of particular women′s lives in an urban setting. It is concerned with the development of a sociology of embodiment in the context of women′s lives in contemporary, urban India. The focus on embodiment is mediated by gender and class, two critical elements that constitute identity in relation to embodiment. The study is based on material collected from interviews with working class women in an urban slum and with professional, upper class women, with young women in secondary schools and from material from a women′s magazine.

Book Description Sage Publications, New Delhi, India, 2009. Hardcover. Condition: New. Dust Jacket Condition: New. First Edition. This is a book about embodiment and identity in the context of particular women's lives in an urban setting. It is concerned with the development of a sociology of embodiment in the context of women's lives in contemporary, urban India. The focus on embodiment is mediated by gender and class, two critical elements that constitute identity in relation to embodiment. The study is based on material collected from interviews with working class women in an urban slum and with professional, upper class women, with young women in secondary schools and from material from a women's magazine. Apart from theoretical considerations, the book gives centrality to women's voice in the construction of her identity as an embodied being, located in particular socio-economic settings in urban India. The book also attempts to provide an understanding of resistance in the context of women's lives, both as a conceptual tool and a strategy in everyday life. Printed Pages: 216.

Book Description Sage Publications, 2009. Hardcover. Condition: New. First edition. This book explores the development of a sociology of embodiment in the context of women?s lives in contemporary, urban India. Through a critical analysis of gender and class, the author unravels the complexities that are intrinsic to the multi-layered and fluid construction of woman?s identity in relation to embodiment. Living the Body: Embodiment, Womanhood and Identity in Contemporary India is the first book that unfolds an understanding of women?s experience of embodiment by a careful analysis of the facts gathered from an Indian metropolis. The author brings out numerous voices representing multiple subjectivities through interviews of working class slum women, professional upper class women, adolescent young women in secondary schools and in a slum, and the visual and textual representation of women in a women?s magazine in English. The book will be a compelling read for academicians and students working in the fields of sociology, women?s studies, communication and media studies, anthropology, sexuality and gender studies. It would also interest a wide urban readership, especially NGOs and all those concerned about women?s and gender issues. Printed Pages: 216. Seller Inventory # 5043
