Gendered Experiences of Violence

“Sangeeta Ray has usefully demonstrated that "the discursive construction of the Indian nation by both nationalists and imperialists was often inseparable from their idealization of a Hindu India epitomized in a particular Hindu female figure.” This book explores the postcolonial shape of this feminization of the nation; it turns to the representation of male and female experiences of violence and displacement, and the cultural fashioning of intimacy and coupledom to uncover the transnational imagining of belonging and citizenship in its hegemonic as well as counter-public forms.“
