Towards An Anti-Imperialist Politics: Reflections Of A Desi Feminist

Title:Towards An Anti-Imperialist Politics: Reflections Of A Desi Feminist
Author:Chandra Talpade Mohanty
Publication:South Asian Popular Culture / Routledge, part of the Taylor & Francis Group
Enumeration:Vol. 2, No. 1 pp. 69 - 73 , April 2004
Abstract:This essay weaves various elements of US citizenship into a meditation about my own emotional and political cartography as a 'desi' feminist, clarifying questions of identity, displacement, home, and the struggle for a just world. It moves on to a discussion of the conceptual and political implications of citizenship crafted thus, and sketches the outlines of a feminist anti-imperialist praxis post-11 September 2001. The essay concludes with suggestions for pedagogic strategies directly related to confronting the US as the new empire.
