Gender and Modernity

Perspectives from Asia and the Pacific

Edited by: Yoko Hayami, Yumiko Tokita-Tanabe, Akio Tanabe

Drawing on a wealth of ethnographic fieldwork, this anthology examines the complexities of identity formation and self-positioning in post-colonial contexts, ranging from the impact of Christian missionaries on the women of Aboriginal Australia to the re-masculinization of post-colonial subjects in Eastern India, from the negotiation of gendered spaces in Indonesia and Thailand to the ways in which Japanese popular culture "plays" with gender identities.
