Upcoming Talk

GOVERNANCE FEMINISM IN THE POST-COLONY: INDIA'S RAPE LAW REFORMS OF 2013

Speaker:
Prabha Kotiswaran
Senior Lecturer, Department of Law, King's College

WEDNESDAY, MARCH 25TH

Wednesday, March 25, 2015
12:00PM - 2:00PM 208N,
North House, Munk School of Global Affairs
1 Devonshire Place, U Toronto
Toronto


Against the backdrop of the phenomenal international successes of
governance feminism, my paper considers governance feminism in the
post- colony. In particular, the paper uses the wide-ranging law
reforms on rape and trafficking in India in the wake of the rape and
murder of a Delhi student in December 2012 to make two arguments.
First, that Anglo-American governance feminism has a rather limited
and contingent influence on postcolonial feminism. Second, that a
mapping of Indian feminist interventions on the law of rape over the
past three decades suggests that Indian feminism displays key
characteristics of governance feminism. Viewing the 2013 reforms as
the culmination of decades of feminist lobbying of the state for rape
law reform, the paper argues that Indian governance feminism is deeply
committed to a highly gendered understanding of sexual violence.
Further, that Indian feminism has increasingly resorted to the use of
the criminal law to address sexual violence even as its historical
suspicion of postcolonial state power has reduced considerably and is
now mostly evident in its opposition to the death penalty for rapists.
On the pathway to increased influence, Indian governance feminism has
faced challenges from advocates of the LGBT community, children's
rights groups and sex workers' groups. The paper considers in detail
mobilizational efforts of one such group, namely, sex workers to
illuminate both aspects of governance feminism, namely, the politics
of feminism in relation to sex work but also the challenges for
governance feminism as sex workers have mobilized outside the folds of
the Indian women's movement and in the space of what Partha Chatterjee
calls political society. Brought together in the struggle for the
Criminal Law (Amendment) Act, 2013, I compare and contrast the ways in
which Indian feminists and sex workers approached law reform. This
illuminates ways in which governance feminism relates not just to
juridical power but also to highly mobile forms of governmentalised
power. This paper thus tells a highly contextual story of
fragmentation, partial reception, partial rejection, and the local
production of feminist ideas and stances towards governance.

Prabha Kotiswaran is Senior Lecturer in Law, King's College London
where she teaches criminal law, transnational criminal law,
jurisprudence, law and social theory and sociology of law. She is the
author of Dangerous Sex, Invisible Labor: Sex Work and the Law in
India. Published by Princeton University Press (2011) and co-published
by Oxford University Press, India (2011), Dangerous Sex, Invisible
Labor won the SLSA-Hart Book Prize for Early Career Academics in 2012.
She is also the editor of Sex Work, an anthology published by Women
Unlimited (2011) for a series on issues in contemporary Indian
feminism. Current projects include an edited volume on Shaping the
Definition of Trafficking in the Palermo Protocol, a co-authored book
on Governance Feminism and a co-edited Handbook on Governance Feminism
(both with with Janet Halley, Rachel Rebouche and Hila Shamir). She is
also the Co-Convener (with Peer Zumbansen) of the King's Summer
Institute in Transnational Law and Governance.

2015 Ruth Benedict Book Prize

2015 RUTH BENEDICT BOOK PRIZE COMPETITION

Call for Submissions

The Association for Queer Anthropology (AQA) is proud to announce
the 2015 Ruth Benedict Book Prize Competition for outstanding
anthropological scholarship on a lesbian, gay, bisexual,
transgender, or queer topic.

The Ruth Benedict Book Prize is presented each year at the American
Anthropological Association's annual meeting to acknowledge
excellence in a scholarly book written from an anthropological
perspective about a topic that engages issues and theoretical
perspectives relevant to LGBTQ studies. The Prize is awarded in
each of two separate categories, one for a single-authored
monograph and another for an edited volume.

Submissions may be on any topic related to lesbians, gay men,
bisexuals, transgender people, or other gender/sexual formations
and categories from any world culture area. Topics may include the
study of normativity, queer theory, and the social/historical
construction of sexual and gender identities, discourses, and
categories. Authors may represent any scholarly discipline, but the
material submitted must engage anthropological theories and
methods. Submissions may be self-nominated or may be sent by a
press or another person.

Books submitted for the competition must have a publication date of
2014 or 2015 and may not have been submitted previously. Page
proofs of books scheduled for 2015 publication are acceptable but
must include a letter from the publisher confirming the anticipated
publication date of 2015.

To nominate a work, please submit one copy of the book or edited
volume to each of the four committee members listed below, with the
author or editor's name, mailing address, and email address, and
telephone number printed clearly on a separate cover letter
indicating that it is a submission for the Ruth Benedict Book Prize.

All submissions must be received by Monday, June 15, 2014.

Send inquiries to Ruth Benedict Book Prize Chair, Margot Weiss
