The Gender, Culture, and Power Reader explores different approaches to the study and conceptualization of gender, the value and limitations of gender as an analytic category, and the theoretical insights about gender produced by ethnographic research into the everyday lives, labors, loves, andlivelihoods of people throughout the world. Why does gender "matter"? How are dominant ideas and practices of gender perceived, produced, experienced, and contested in different societies? How does ethnographic research provide access to these stories, perspectives, and experiences? What is therelationship between evidence and theory? The Gender, Culture, and Power Reader addresses these questions and more. Expertly edited by Dorothy L. Hodgson, this diverse reader includes both classical debates and relevant contemporary topics like gender-based violence and human rights.
Dorothy Hodgson is Professor and Graduate Program Director in the Department of Anthropology at Rutgers University. She is the author of several books, including Being Maasai, Becoming Indigenous: Postcolonial Politics in a Neoliberal World (2011) and The Church of Women: Gendered Encounters between Maasai and Missionaries (2005).
