Visualizing Indian Women: 1875-1947
Visualizing Indian Women: 1875-1947
Description

From the Jacket :

Photography as a medium has captured the diverse realities of women's lives over the last century and a half, providing a more holistic understanding of what is learned through the written word, memory, and recall. Visualizing Indian Women is a collection of 300 such rare photographs depicting women's lives during the period 1875 - 1947, gleaned from archives as well as private collections.

Based on a traveling exhibition curated by the Centre for Women's Development Studies, New Delhi, the book consists of images and explanatory captions that are divided into five sections, following a more or less chronological development of Indian women during this period.

'Visualizing the Family' showcases family photographs that focus on the changing role of women, the emergence of the urban nuclear family, domestic rituals, and home performances.

Pioneers in educational reform and the experiences of women in schools and colleges are looked at in 'The Learning Experience'.

'Worlds Beyond' has visuals of women as agricultural labourers and factory workers, the beginnings of women's emancipation as they moved into professions, the creative arts and politics - possible only with enhanced physical mobility.

The process of women's evolution as active political beings in a critical phase of the nation's history are documented in 'The Freedom Struggle'.

'Towards the Midnight Hour' captures a sense of challenge and commitment by highlighting the emergence of women as professionals and their experiences through the Bengal famine, Quit India movement, Partition, and the Second World War.

With a comprehensive, lucidly written introduction that places the photographs in context, this volume will be of great interest to general readers, students and scholars of gender studies, history, sociology, culture and media studies; photographers, photo-journalists, archivists, and art historians.

Testimonials
Fantastic! Thank You for amazing service and fast replies!
Sonia, Sweden
I’ve started receiving many of the books I’ve ordered and every single one of them (thus far) has been fantastic - both the books themselves, and the execution of the shipping. Safe to say I’ll be ordering many more books from your website :)
Hithesh, USA

You guys are beyond amazing. The books you provide not many places have and I for one am so thankful to have found you.
Lulian, UK
This is my first purchase from Exotic India and its really good to have such store with online buying option. Thanks, looking ahead to purchase many more such exotic product from you.
Probir, UAE
I received the kaftan today via FedEx. Your care in sending the order, packaging and methods, are exquisite. You have dressed my body in comfort and fashion for my constrained quarantine in the several kaftans ordered in the last 6 months. And I gifted my sister with one of the orders. So pleased to have made a connection with you.
EB Cuya FIGG, USA
