– a new and groundbreaking series addressing gender issues.
Gendering Asia addresses the ways in which power and the constructions of gender, sex, sexuality and the body intersect with one an-other and pervade contemporary Asian societies. The series invites discussion of how people shape their identities as females or males and, at the same time, become shaped by the very societies
in which they live. The series is concerned with
the region as a whole in order to capture the wide range of understandings and practices that are found in East, Southeast and South Asian societies with respect to gendered roles and relations in various social, political, religious, and economic contexts. Gendering Asia is, then, a multidisciplinary series that explores theoretical,
empirical, and methodological issues in the social sciences.
