Re-thinking sexualities in Africa by Signe Arnfred( Book )

23 editions published between 2003 and 2006 in English and held by 497 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This volume sets out to investigate critically existing lines of thought about sexuality in Africa, while also creating space for alternative approaches. Issues of colonial and contemporary discourses on 'African sexuality' and on 'female genital mutilation' are discussed, as are issues of female agency and of feminist engagement with HIV/AIDS. The volume contributes to current efforts to re-think sexualities in the light of feminist, queer and postcolonial theory."--BOOK JACKET
Sexuality & gender politics in Mozambique : rethinking gender in Africa by Signe Arnfred( )

18 editions published between 2011 and 2014 in English and held by 437 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book is about gender politics in Mozambique over three decades from 1975 to 2005. The book is also about different ways of understanding gender and sexuality. Gender policies from Portuguese colonialism, through Frelimo socialism to later neo-liberal economic regimes share certain basic assumptions about men, women and gender relations. But to what extent do such assumptions fit the ways in which rural Mozambican men and women see themselves? A major line of argument in the book is that gender relations should be investigated, not assumed, and that policies not matching people's lives are not likely to succeed. The empirical data, on which the argument is based, are first a unique body of data material collected 1982-1984 by the national women's organization, the OMM [when the author was employed as a sociologist in the organization] and secondly data resulting from more recent fieldwork in northern Mozambique. Importantly inspired by African post-colonial feminist lines of thinking, the book engages in a project of re-mapping and re-interpreting 'culture and tradition'. In this context, the book investigates in particular matriliny [c. 40% of Mozambique's population live under conditions of matriliny] and female initiation. The findings open new avenues for gender politics, and for re-thinking sexuality and gender - in Africa and beyond."--Publisher's website

Extrait de la couverture : " This book celebrates the successes in African struggles for gender equality and draws attention to the challenges facing the edification of gender studies, women's rights and entitlements. It brings together contributions by seasoned gender specialists who draw empirical evidence from several African countries - Nigeria, Ghana, Uganda, Mozambique, Tanzania and South Africa - to critically discuss various experiencies in setting up gender and women's studies programmes, feminist and gender activism, gender identities, social protest, gender and culture in indigenous films, continiuties and discontiniuties in conception of gender, same-sex relationship, customary law, and gendered discourse patterns."
African gender scholarship : concepts, methodologies, and paradigms by S. (Signe) Anfred( Book )

10 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 155 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A distinctive contribution of African feminist and gender scholarship has been a conscious effort to draw from, and simultaneously rethink, concepts, paradigms and methodologies that are often taken for granted both in conventional and in mainstream feminist scholarship. This with a view to enriching them with perspectives sensitive to the encounters, cultures, economic and socio-political predicaments that have shaped and been shaped by gender relations in Africa. This volume brings together essays by some of the leading names on gender studies in Africa, as a major contribution to these concerns. Situating themselves variously in relation to claims and counter claims on the universalisms and particularisms in African feminism and gender studies, the authors debate the relative (de)-merits of Eurocentrism, African epistemologies and cultures, colonial legacies, postcolonial realities, and other current dilemmas and challenges in understanding and articulating African feminism and gender research. Practiced and budding scholars should find this a fascinating read."--Book cover
