Imagining Women's Social Space in Early Modern Keralam
The paper argues that the formation of modern gender identities in late 19th and early 20th Century Keralam was deeply implicated in the project of shaping governable subjects who were, at the one and same time, â€˜freeâ€™ and already inserted into modern institutions. Because gender appeared both â€˜naturalâ€™ and â€˜socialâ€™, both â€˜individualisedâ€™ and â€˜generalâ€™, it appeared to be a superior form of social order compared to the established jati-based ordering.
