Jewels of authority : women and textual tradition in hindu India
The essays in this volume seek to introduce a level of theoretical analysis by means of close readings of situations in which women are given or denied authority in ritual and interpretive contexts. This approach encompasses not only how women are represented, but also particular strategies of debate about women, how women are depicted as negotiating certain kinds of authority; and how women might resist traditional authority in specific colonial and post colonial situations.
