Masculinities under Neoliberalism (Paperback): Andrea Cornwall, Frank G Karioris, Nancy Lindisfarne Masculinities under Neoliberalism (Paperback)
Andrea Cornwall, Frank G Karioris, Nancy Lindisfarne
R470 Discovery Miles 4 700 Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

Neoliberalism has had a radical impact on the lived, gendered experiences of people around the world. But while the gendered dimensions of neoliberalism have already received significant scholarly attention, the existing literature has given little consideration to men's identities and experiences. Building on the work of Cornwall and Lindisfarne's landmark text Dislocating Masculinity, this collection provides a fresh perspective on gender dynamics under neoliberalism. Bringing together a series of short, readable case studies drawn from new ethnographic fieldwork, its subjects range from the experiences of working-class men in Putin's Russia to colonial masculinities in Southern Rhodesia, and from young British Muslim men to amateur footballers in Jamaica.

Deconstructing Development Discourse - Buzzwords and Fuzzwords (Paperback): Andrea Cornwall, Deborah Eade Deconstructing Development Discourse - Buzzwords and Fuzzwords (Paperback)
Andrea Cornwall, Deborah Eade
R489 Discovery Miles 4 890 Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

Writing from diverse locations, the contributors to this volume examine some of the key terms in current development discourse. Why should language matter to those who are doing development? Surely, there are more urgent things to do than sit around mulling over semantics? But language does matter. Whether emptied of their original meaning, essentially vacuous, or hotly contested, the language of development not only shapes our imagined worlds, but also justifies interventions in real people s lives. If development buzzwords conceal ideological differences or sloppy thinking, then the process of constructive deconstruction make it possible to re-examine what have become catch-all terms like civil society and poverty reduction, or bland aid-agency terms such as partnership or empowerment. Such engagement is far more than a matter of playing word games. The reflections included here raise major questions about how we think about development itself.The 30 contributors to this volume include Cassandra Balchin, Srilatha Batliwala, Robert Chambers, Neera Chandhoke, Ben Fine, Shalmali Guttal, Pablo Alejandro Leal, Islah Jad, Thandika Mkandawire, John Samuel, John Toye, and Peter Uvin."

Pathways to Participation - Reflections on PRA (Paperback): Andrea Cornwall, Garett Pratt Pathways to Participation - Reflections on PRA (Paperback)
Andrea Cornwall, Garett Pratt
R440 Discovery Miles 4 400 Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

'Participation' may have become the buzzword of the 1990s, but the pathways of current enthusiasm for participatory methods stretch back over decades. The most popularly recognized and widely used participatory approach, Participatory Rural Appraisal (PRA) had its genesis in the late 1980s. Since then, it has come to be used in countless communities, in dozens of countries and in a huge variety of contexts. Once a marginal practice, it has now become an instrument used by the most powerful of global development institutions.Pathways to Participation offers a fascinating and unique perspective on PRA. In it, thirty-two practitioners from twenty countries -- including pioneers like Robert Chambers and Jules Pretty - reflect critically on what PRA has come to mean to them, and draw on the wealth of their experiences as NGO workers, donors, activists and trainers to explore some of the lessons the past might offer future participatory practice. Embracing a range of entry points and experiences, past and future, challenges and opportunities, their stories speak of moments of frustration and revelation, of dilemmas and discoveries; together, their accounts speak of and about the sheer variety of the practices that have come to be called 'PRA'.

Andrea Cornwall, Jerker Edstrom, Alan Greig; Contributions by Chris Dolan, Chimaraoke O. Izugbara, …
R615 Discovery Miles 6 150 Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

"Men and Development: Politicizing Masculinities" features an exciting collection of contributions from some of today's leading thinkers and practitioners in the field of men, masculinities, and development. Together, contributors challenge the neglect of the structural dimensions of patriarchal power relations in current development policy and practice, and the failure to adequately engage with the effects of inequitable sex and gender orders on both men's and women's lives. The book calls for renewed engagement in efforts to challenge and change stereotypes of men, to dismantle the structural barriers to gender equality, and to mobilize men to build new alliances with women's movements and other movements for social and gender justice.

Andrea Cornwall
R386 Discovery Miles 3 860 Shipped within 7 - 11 working days

Readings in Gender in Africa collects the most important critical and theoretical writings on how gender issues have transformed contemporary views of Africa. Scholarship from North America, Europe, and Africa is represented in this comprehensive volume. A synthetic introduction by Andrea Cornwall discusses efforts to include women in research about Africa. The volume not only shows how gender relations have been constructed on the African continent but reflects the changes in approach and inquiry that have been brought about as scholars consider gender identities and difference in their work. Specific themes covered here include the contestation and representation of gender, femininity and masculinity, livelihoods and lifeways, gender and religion, gender and culture, and gender and governance. Readers from across the landscape of African studies will find this an essential sourcebook.

Researching Sex and Sexualities (Hardcover): Paul Boyce, Andrea Cornwall, Hannah Frith, Laura Harvey Researching Sex and Sexualities (Hardcover)
Paul Boyce, Andrea Cornwall, Hannah Frith, Laura Harvey
R1,593 Discovery Miles 15 930 Shipped within 7 - 11 working days

Sexuality is a complex and multifaceted domain - encompassing bodily, contextual and subjective experiences that resist ready categorisation. To claim the sexual as a viable research object therefore raises a number of important methodological questions: what is it possible to know about experiences, practices and perceptions of sex and sexualities? What approaches might help or hinder our efforts to probe such experiences? This collection explores the creative, personal and contextual parameters involved in researching sexuality, cutting across disciplinary boundaries and drawing on case studies from a variety of countries and contexts. Combining a wide range of expertise, its contributors address such key areas as pornography, sex work, intersectionality and LGBT perspectives. The contributors also share their own experiences of researching sexuality within contrasting disciplines, as well as interrogating how the sexual identities of researchers themselves can relate to, and inform, their work. The result is a unique and diverse collection that combines practical insights on field work with novel theoretical reflections.

Gender Myths and Feminist Fables - The Struggle for Interpretive Power in Gender and Development (Paperback): Andrea Cornwall,... Gender Myths and Feminist Fables - The Struggle for Interpretive Power in Gender and Development (Paperback)
Andrea Cornwall, Elizabeth Harrison, Ann Whitehead
R447 Discovery Miles 4 470 Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

This collection brings together leading feminist thinkers who examine the struggles for interpretive power which underlies international development. Questions why the insights from years of feminist gender and development research are so often turned into 'gender myths' and 'feminist fables': women are more likely to care for the environment; are better at working together; are less corrupt; have a seemingly infinite capacity to survive Explores how bowdlerized and impoverished representations of gender relations have simultaneously come to be embedded in development policy and practice Traces the ways in which language and images of development are related to practice and provides a nuanced account of the politics of knowledge production Argues that struggles for interpretive power are not only important for our own sake, but also for the implications they have for women's lives worldwide An informed analysis of how 'gender' has been transformed in its transfer into development policy and how many authors are now revisiting and reflecting on their earlier work

Dislocating Masculinity - Comparative Ethnographies (Hardcover, New): Andrea Cornwall, Nancy Lindisfarne Dislocating Masculinity - Comparative Ethnographies (Hardcover, New)
Andrea Cornwall, Nancy Lindisfarne
R4,983 Discovery Miles 49 830 Shipped within 7 - 11 working days

Much recent writing on and by men suggests that male prerogatives are being sustained and lent authority by the new discipline of "men's studies". "Dislocating Masculinity" brings together a critical set of papers on men and masculinities which raise important new questions for gender studies - in settings which range from imperial India to rural Zimbabwe to the gay community in London. "Hegemonic masculinity" is deconstructed to reveal the complexities of gendered difference, and the familiar oppositions of male/female and masculinity/feminity are analyzed - including the assumption that "a man is a man" everywhere, and means the same thing everywhere. Lindsfarne has also published "Battered Brides: Politics, Gender and Marriage in an Afghan Tribal Society" (CUP, 1991).

Revolutionizing Development - Reflections on the Work of Robert Chambers (Hardcover, New): Ian Scoones, Andrea Cornwall Revolutionizing Development - Reflections on the Work of Robert Chambers (Hardcover, New)
Ian Scoones, Andrea Cornwall
R2,453 Discovery Miles 24 530 Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

This book tells the story of development studies in practice over the last fifty years through the work of one remarkable individual, Robert Chambers. His work has taken him from being a colonial officer in Kenya through training and managing large rural development projects to a fundamental critique of top-down development and the championing of participatory approaches. The contributors eloquently demonstrate how he has been at the centre of major shifts in development thinking and practice over this period, popularising terms that are now at the centre of the development lexicon such as vulnerability, multi-dimensional poverty, sustainable livelihoods and 'farmer first'. Robert Chambers played a major role in the massive growth in participatory approaches to development, and particularly the application of participatory methods in development research and appraisal. This has led to fundamental challenges to development practice, ranging from approaches to monitoring and evaluation to institutional learning and professional training. There is probably no-one who has had more influence on approaches to development in the past decades. Revolutionizing Development offers a unique overview of these contributions in thirty-two concise chapters from authors who have been intimately involved as collaborators, critics and colleagues of Robert Chambers.

Development with a Body - Sexuality, Human Rights and Development (Paperback): Andrea Cornwall, Sonia Correa, Susie Jolly Development with a Body - Sexuality, Human Rights and Development (Paperback)
Andrea Cornwall, Sonia Correa, Susie Jolly
R504 Discovery Miles 5 040 Out of stock

'We used to talk about development with a human face. We should be talking about development with a body' Arit Oku-Egbas, African Regional Sexuality Resource Centre, Nigeria Sex and sexuality have always had a place at the heart of the development agenda - from concerns regarding population and environment, to practices in education and efforts for protecting reproductive health and rights. Yet this agenda has largely focused on negative dimensions of sexuality - disease, risk, violation - rather than positive aspects, including rights to sexual fulfillment, wellbeing and pleasure. The shift towards a rights-based approach to development has brought the human rights dimensions of sexuality into clearer view, and consequently the need to address discriminatory laws and violations of the human rights of those whose sexual identity and practices diverge from dominant sexual orders/norms. This book offers compelling insights into contemporary challenges and transformative possibilities of the struggle for sexual rights. It combines the conceptual with the political, and offering inspiring examples of practical interventions and campaigns that emphasize the positive dimensions of sexuality. It brings together reflections and experiences of researchers, activists and practitioners from Brazil, India, Nigeria, Peru, Serbia, South Africa, Turkey, the UK and Zambia. From political discourse on sex and masculinity to sex work and trafficking, from HIV and sexuality to struggles for legal reform and citizenship, the authors explore the gains of creating stronger linkages between sexuality, human rights and development.

Women, Sexuality and the Political Power of Pleasure (Hardcover): Andrea Cornwall, Susie Jolly, Kate Hawkins Women, Sexuality and the Political Power of Pleasure (Hardcover)
Andrea Cornwall, Susie Jolly, Kate Hawkins
R1,584 Discovery Miles 15 840 Out of stock

This pioneering collection explores the ways in which women's sexual desires are experienced by them and how this experience effects women's empowerment. It shows that an exploration of pleasure can have a hugely positive impact for women at the personal, social and political levels. Traditional gender and development discourses tend to engage with sexuality in relation to violence and ill-health. Although this has been hugely important in challenging violence against women, over emphasizing these negative aspects has subsumed women's sexualities under violence, danger and fear. The media, the pharmaceutical market, pornography and the market more broadly on the other hand celebrate the pleasures of sex in ways that can be just as oppressive, often implying that only certain types of (young, heterosexual, able-bodied, HIV negative) people are 'eligible' for sexual pleasure. The book brings together challenges to these strictures and exclusions from both south and north of the globe. It demonstrates both conceptually and through examples of mobilisation, programming and policy, how positive approaches to pleasure and sexuality can enhance equality and empowerment for all.

Feminisms in Development - Contradictions, Contestations and Challenges (Hardcover): Andrea Cornwall, Elizabeth Harrison, Ann... Feminisms in Development - Contradictions, Contestations and Challenges (Hardcover)
Andrea Cornwall, Elizabeth Harrison, Ann Whitehead
R1,648 Discovery Miles 16 480 Out of stock

This collection of essays by leading feminist thinkers from North and South constitutes a major new attempt to reposition feminism within development studies. Feminism's emphasis on social transformation makes it fundamental to development studies. Yet the relationship between the two disciplines has frequently been a troubled one. At present, the way in which many development institutions function often undermines feminist intent through bureaucratic structures and unequal power quotients. Moreover, the seeming intractability of inequalities and injustice in developing countries have presented feminists with some enormous challenges. Here, emphasizing the importance of a plurality of approaches, the authors argue for the importance of what 'feminisms' have to say to development. Confronting the enormous challenges for feminisms in development studies, this book provides real hope for dialogue and exchange between feminisms and development.

Andrea Cornwall, Vera Schatten Coelho
R1,648 Discovery Miles 16 480 Out of stock

This book addresses one of the greatest challenges of our age: that of building democratic polities where all can realize their rights and claim substantive citizenship. In recent years, innovations in governance have created a plethora of new democratic spaces in many countries. Yet there remains a gap between the intention to institutionalize participation and the reality of exclusion of poorer and marginalized citizens. Through case studies of a diversity of institutions - hospital facility boards in South Africa, a national-level deliberative process in Canada, sectoral management councils and community groups in Brazil, India, Mexico and Bangladesh, participatory budgeting in Argentina, NGO-created forums in Angola and Bangladesh, community forums in the UK, and new intermediary spaces created by social movements in South Africa - contributors examine how the democratic potential of these new spaces might be enhanced.

This book offers a wide range of innovative examples from around the world related to fundamental shifts in thinking and the practice of reproductive rights. From popular theater in Nigeria to participatory research in Britain, from role-playing in Cambodia to visualizing reproductive health in Zimbabwe, and from collaborative planning in Egypt to community dialogue in the Andes, these twenty-four chapters reveal the value of transforming approaches to sexual and reproductive wellbeing. All begin with the need to engage women, men, and youth more directly in determining pathways to change, and all highlight both the complexities and the possibilities of making rights real.

Feminisms, Empowerment and Development - Changing Womens Lives (Hardcover): Andrea Cornwall, Jenny Edwards Feminisms, Empowerment and Development - Changing Womens Lives (Hardcover)
Andrea Cornwall, Jenny Edwards; Contributions by Pathways Of Women's Empowerment
R1,591 Discovery Miles 15 910 Out of stock

The economic and political empowerment of women continues to be a central focus for development agencies worldwide; access to medical care, education and employment, as well as women's reproductive rights remain key factors effecting women's autonomy. Feminisms, Empowerment and Development explores what women are doing to change their own personal circumstances whilst providing an in-depth analysis of collective action and institutionalized mechanisms aimed at changing structural relations. Drawing on unique, original research and approaching empowerment as a complex process of negotiation, rather than a linear sequence of inputs and outcomes, this crucial collection highlights the difficulty of creating common agendas for the advancement of women's power and rights, and argues for a more nuanced, context-based approach to development theory and practice. An indispensible text for anyone interested in gender and development, this book shows that policies and approaches to development that view women as instrumental to other objectives will never promote women's empowerment as they fail to address the structures by which gender inequality is perpetuated over time.
