About this product
- DescriptionIn this groundbreaking book, Yuval-Davis provides a cutting-edge investigation of the challenging debates around belonging and the politics of belonging. Alongside the hegemonic forms of citizenship and nationalism which have tended to dominate our recent political and social history, the author examines alternative contemporary political projects of belonging constructed around the tions of religion, cosmopolitanism and the feminist 'ethics of care'. The book also explores the effects of globalization, mass migration, the rise of both fundamentalist and human rights movements on such politics of belonging, as well as some of its racialized and gendered dimensions. A special space is given to the various feminist political movements that have been engaged as part of or in resistance to the political projects of belonging. Yuval-Davis deconstructs tions of national and ethnic and interrogates the effects that different political projects of belonging have on members of these collectivities who are differentially located socially, ecomically and politically. The Politics of Belonging: Intersectional Contestations will appeal to students and researchers in a range of disciplines including women's and gender studies, sociology, cultural studies, theology and religious studies, and political science.
