The Piety and Politics of Womens Food Practices in a Changing South Asia


This book will explore issues related to gender, religion, work and identity in South Asia through the lens of food practices. Food has powerful discursive and ritual value across South Asian cultures and of course occupies an important place in the everyday lives of women across the class spectrum. It therefore offers a unique window into issues of gender difference, religious power, cultural identity, and social change in all South Asian communities and religious traditions—Hinduism, Islam, Buddhism, Sikhism, and others.

·       In what ways can we rethink Shakespeare’s anatopism, ie. his staging of London as other cities?
