The contributors to this volume work at the intersection of cultural studies, feminist studies, and critical development studies to articulate a new framework that they call Women, Culture, and Development. The editors trace its genealogies and potential in their introduction, and the several parts of the book ground it by applying it to a range of issues including sexuality and the gendered body; environment, technology and science; and the cultural politics of representation. A set of shorter essays, many of them by a new generation of scholars, introduce visions of the future through the prism of exciting new work in the field.
