Fusing aesthetic and economic analyses, Embroidering Lives investigates the lives and work of women in the chikan embroidery industry of Lucknow, India. Richly descriptive and accessibly written, the book explores many important issues in women's studies, anthropology, and urban development today - the impact of purdah (seclusion of women) upon women's work and occupational opportunities, the key role of sub-contractors in home-based industry, the need to understand a handicraft from its makers' point of view, and the role of development agencies and programs.

Elizabeth A. Flynn W Professional Lives in Rhetoric and Composition. Choice, Chance, Serendipity


This collection, edited by Elizabeth A. Flynn and Tiffany Bourelle, contributes to the valuable work of chronicling the professional and personal lives of women in academia. Through its line-up of contributors from diverse backgrounds, locations, and career paths, Women's Professional Lives in Rhetoric and Composition showcases the voices of multiple scholars occupying a multitude of different roles in the profession: from prestigious professors emeritae and endowed chairs to assistant professors starting their careers to an independent scholar to part-time faculty. The collection sets itself apart from other volumes not just in its diversity of perspectives but also by speaking against linear stories of success in the profession-sharing moments of shame and failure, showing how the personal and professional often intertwine and influence one another, and ultimately revealing how choice, chance, serendipity, and kairos have all played a role in the lives of its contributors. In focusing on this convergence, Women's Professional Lives in Rhetoric and Composition offers a more nuanced picture of the professional and intellectual trajectories of women in rhetoric and composition.

Talking Gender. Public Images, Personal Journeys, and Political Critiques


Talking Gender assesses the state of women's studies in the 1990s. The contributors write from the perspective of their own academic disciplines and experiences, but they also address more general issues of women's lives and circumstances. The result is a broad picture of women's studies and feminist scholarship, which emerge as a rich, if sometimes dissonant, chorus of voices. These original essays cover a range of topics and a variety of times and places: images of women inherited from Roman oratory, visual images from cultures of trauma; verbal imagery in today's pornography debates; political and social identities in the state of Israel; boundaries between private and public lives of African American women leaders; voices and audiences of African American women writers; stereotypes of HIV-positive women; what women's studies can teach men about themselves; and the place of women in global industry. The introduction and conclusion place the collection within the context of historical debates in women's studies and suggest some new directions for the field. The contributors: Cynthia Enloe (Clark University) Sara M. Evans (University of Minnesota) Kathy E. Ferguson (University of Hawai'i at Manoa) Karla F. C. Holloway (Duke University) Michael S. Kimmel (SUNY-Stony Brook) Mandy Merck (London) Barbara Ogur (Cambridge Neighborhood Health Centers) Amy Richlin (University of Southern California) Kristine Stiles (Duke University) Deborah Gray White (Ru...

In Her Own Time. Women and Developmental Issues in Pastoral Care


This new guidebook by leading pastoral theologians challenges much in contemporary developmental theory. Arguing that women's developmental stages cannot automatically be assumed to match those of men, the authors provide a fresh analysis of the rewards and challenges of women at different stages of the life cycle.Useful as a text or reference, the book sheds new light on developmental themes, passages, and issues in the lives of women from the perspective of pastoral care. From pre-adolescence to end-of-life-passages, from such diverse themes as the developmental context for intimate violence and the impact of trauma on development to issues of women's power and authority across the life-span, In Her Own Time provides a much-needed framework for the pastoral care of women. Designed to be used as either a textbook for students or a reference for pastors and counselors, In Her Own Time takes a probing theological and psychological look at the possibilities and hurdles in the life-span of today's women.Like Gail Sheehy's Passages, Daniel Levinson's Seasons of a Lifetime, or Mary Pipher's Reviving Ophelia, In Her Own Time will provide a framework-in this case, a religious and theological framework-for seeing the specific issues in the lives of today's women.
