Culture, Gender and Ecology: Beyond Workerism is certainly not about the irrelevance of class realities of the working class.

Cultural Narratives: Hybridity & Other Spaces Book

Approx. Rs 556 / piece

Cultural Narratives: Hybridity and Other Spaces is a collection of essays which concern themselves with the dialogic relations between narrative and space. As they move from traditional, folk and community narratives into hybrid spaces and urban locations, the relationship between the two – narrative and space – reflects a spatial history of the telling of the tale. Spatial concepts such as the personal and the political are in themselves abstractions, concretely experienced and expressed only by a living agent. The contestation between the two is of long standing with the interconnections becoming visible only in recent years.

Culture, Stratification And Development

Approx. Rs 660 / piece

The book presents a well-knit analysis of intertwining of culture, stratification and development in the first decade of 21st century in India. “Social difference” and “power” are seen as the most effective bases of social stratification. Caste as a system has lost its appeal, but caste as a phenomenon has gained considerable space in elections, mobilisations and in extra-legal actions. Caste is, thus, more of a state of mind and identity rather than a bedrock of intercaste and intracaste relations.
