About this Item: 2017. Hardcover. Condition: New. 322 ABOUT THE BOOK:- This book traces the gradual transition of the devadasi system from the early medieval to the modern society from sacred to profane spaces. In early medieval period these were women with a lot of wealth and standing dedicated to temples. The intervention of the colonial power introduced new economic patterns that influenced new kinds of social structure. The nation building process of the 19 century C.E. was largely constructed on female sexuality that brought concepts such as 'social purity', 'good women', and 'motherhood' to the forefront. This further weakened the social acceptance of the devadasi women. In the early 20 century C.E., devadasi lost both their social and economic base and became common prostitutes and eventually the devadasi institution faded away. This study uses qualitative methods, especially the methodologies of History and Gender Studies. Besides archival research, this research also carried out unstructured interviews with the last surviving devadasis. This book would be a very valuable resource for students and researchers of History, Women's history, Women's studies and Religion. ABOUT THE AUTHOR:- S. Jeevanandam is an Assistant Professor in the Department of History, in Sikkim University. He has earlier worked in the Department of History at Assam University, Silchar. He was awarded Shri Justice P Rajagopalan Endowment Medal, The Governor Chancellor's Centenary Prize and Thiru T.V. Anantha Rama Sharma Endowment Prize in his M.A for his academic excellence.

About this Item: Rawat Publication, 2015. Hardcover. Condition: New. Gender equality is about equal valuing of women and men?of their similarities and their differences. We need equal, respectful partnerships between men and women for the creation of an equitable society in which gender justice is realized. Gender is a complex and multifaceted array of experiences and meanings that cannot be understood without examining through a lens considering the social context within which they are situated. Gender lens then become the spectacles. Gender Lens: Women?s Issues and Perspectives explores the cultural meanings of gender and gender differences. It makes us think critically not only about gender but about other social divisions as well. The aim is to expand our knowledge and understanding of women in our own society and also those living in societies very different from ours. This book is an interdisciplinary work that places gender at the intersection of society, caste, race, sexuality and work. The book highlights on themes related to the women?s movement; governance, caste, class and race; work and labour; violence and sexual harassment; women in margins; and health issues. It is a challenge to incorporate all the varieties that characterize the diverse issues related to women in today?s world. This task becomes even more difficult in the developing world, which is a byword for diversity. Therefore, we now have a rainbow of struggles to reclaim women?s space in all these domains that make a colourful mosaic. The challenge here is to give voice to the narratives which use very different categories, that cannot be understood without the contexts and also cannot be fully reduced to writing and yet explore the varied cultural meanings of gender and gender differences.

About this Item: Gyan, New Delhi, 2005. Hardbound. Condition: As New. New. Contents Preface. 1. Introduction. 2. Origins and historiography of the movement. 3. Socio economic background of the movement. 4. Bhakti movement in the southern regions. 5. Bhakti movement in the northern regions. 6. Bhakti movement in western eastern and north eastern regions. 7. Male Bhakta's attitude towards women. 8. Alternative space for women in the Bhakti movement. 9. Conclusions. Appendices. Bibliography. Index. The present book Religious Movements in Medieval India attempts to explore the Bhakti movement in Medieval India. Beginning from the 7 century A.D. to the 18 century Medieval India saw a phenomenal outpouring of religiosity in the vernacular oral traditions on themes ranging from dilemmas of every day life to the mysteries of the universe. Scholars have focused on the analysis of the texts philosophical constructs or the societal aspects enlightening us with many readings. While any one cannot be reduced to another the study of Bhakti demands a holistic an integrated approach drawing analytical tools from many disciplines. The 19 century saw a rediscovery of many sacred texts that contributed to the construction of Hinduism as a monolith. The process of reducing orality to textuality saw the wholeSale standardization of very vibrant dynamic and diverse religious practices. Historically the religious beliefs and practices of the Hindus were too divergent to constitute a coherent monolith religious system. A historical gaze at Hinduism clearly points out that to view this as a single religious system is not correct and a distortion of the heterogeneous religious practices of its people. Throughout history alternate spaces have been created and Bhakti was one such medium. The present book is an attempt to explore this movement in its different dimensions in various regions of India. It also highlights the attitude of the male Bhaktas to women and the creation of an alternative space by the women. Using a variety of sources inscriptions and literary texts the author has traced the growth and development of the Bhakti movement and shown how the ideologies social bases and organizational structures in different parts of the country have given a distinct shape to this movement. This is a valuable text for the undergraduate and postgraduate students. This book would be a useful supplement to scholars working on the social and religious history of medieval India. Scholar of religious studies sociology and women's studies would find this book of general interest in order to understand the religious traditions of South Asia in all its diversity. 394 pp. Seller Inventory # 57661

About this Item: Gyan Books Pvt. Ltd., New Delhi, 2017. Hardcover. Condition: New. Dust Jacket Condition: New. This book traces the gradual transition of the devadasi system from the early medieval to the modern society from sacred to profane spaces. In early medieval period these were women with a lot of wealth and standing dedicated to temples. The intervention of the colonial power introduced new economic patterns that influenced new kinds of social structure. The nation building process of the 19 century C.E. was largely constructed on female sexuality that brought concepts such as 'social purity', 'good women', and 'motherhood' to the forefront. This further weakened the social acceptance of the devadasi women. In the early 20 century C.E., devadasi lost both their social and economic base and became common prostitutes and eventually the devadasi institution faded away. This study uses qualitative methods, especially the methodologies of History and Gender Studies. Besides archival research, this research also carried out unstructured interviews with the last surviving devadasis. This book would be a very valuable resource for students and researchers of History, Women's history, Women's studies and Religion. Printed Pages> 322. Seller Inventory # 700213
