Gender Epistemologies and Eurasian Borderlands

 Author: Madina Tlostanova  Category: Central Asia, Culture, Gender, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Politics, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan, Uzbekistan  Publisher: Palgrave  Publication Date: 2010  Language: English  Link to Publisher

Tlostanova examines Central Asia and the Caucasus to trace the genealogy of feminism in those regions following the dissolution of the Soviet Union. The forms feminism takes resist interpretation through the lenses of Western feminist theory and woman-of-color feminism, charting a unique “third way” in Eurasia.
