"[T]heoretically rich ... [T]hese essays raise provocative questions for educational and theoretical inquiry into dominant historical narratives and the relationships between place, identity and custom. This volume also offers us fresh ways to think about the historical production of gender, race and class ideologies and the role of nostalgia in defining place and subjectivity."--Clarissa Adamson, Anthropological Quarterly "Any book bringing a sophisticated array of feminist, poststructuralist and post-colonial theoretical approaches to the intellectually conservative field of Southeast Asian Studies has to be seen as a welcome arrival. Sonita Sarker and Esha Niyogi De have done just this in a collection which employs the concept of 'trans-status subjectivity' to capture the diverse and contradictory experience of South and Southeast Asians in the face of globalization."--Ashley Carruthers, Jourhnal of Southeast Asian Studies "The book covers an exceptional array of material... Supported by rich ethnographic data, each essay is a fascinating read and is a good reminder of the complex diversity in conceptualizations of gender in globalizing South and Southeast Asia."--Amanda Cahill, Asia Pacific Journal of Anthropology "[I]mpressive variety of contributions... [T]he volume would be a useful addition to libraries on gender in contemporary South and Southeast Asia, as well as a rich resource for graduate teaching in both Asian Studies and Gender Studies."--Deirdre McKay, Sojourn "[A]n important contribution... Trans-Status Subjects brings together a pertinent, timely, and intellectually provocative set of discussions... [R]emarkable."--Srirupa Prasad, Comparative Studies of South Asia, Africa and the Middle East Listed in Cultural Critique, Women's Review of Books, Journal of Asian History, Feminist Academic Press column, Women's Studies.
