Description

This book makes a significant contribution to contemporary debates on "globalization," culture and gender. Focusing on intersections of the local and the global in Africa, contributors elucidate how translocal and transnational cultural currents are mediated by gender, how they reshape gender constructs and relations, and how they both manifest and impinge on relations of power.

Reviews

"…stimulates the collaboration between literary and cultural studies on the emergence of gendered identity within relations of power, dominance, and subversion." -- African Studies Review
