    Why Race and Gender Still Matter: An Intersectional Approach.Namita Goswami, Maeve M. O'Donavan & Lisa Yount (eds.) - 2014 - Pickering & Chatto.
    Intersectionality, the attempt to bring theories on race, gender, disability and sexuality together, has existed for decades as a theoretical framework. The essays in this volume explore how intersectionality can be applied to modern philosophy, as well as looking at other disciplines.

    Europe as an Other: Postcolonialism and Philosophers of the Future.Namita Goswami - 2014 - Hypatia 29 (1):59-74.
    This essay challenges the reduction of Gayatri Spivak's critique of postcolonial reason to functional and derivative identity politics. Such a reading neutralizes the philosophical nature of Spivak's conceptual contributions. Because Spivak is derided as preaching about subaltern victimhood, this essay discerns what is philosophical about the concept of the subaltern. I focus on Spivak's attempt at a space-clearing gesture that can create the possibility for breaking the frame of Eurocentrism. I argue that for this philosopher of the future, the concept (...)

    Gendered Agency in Skilled Migration: The Case of Indian Women in the United States.Namita N. Manohar - 2019 - Gender and Society 33 (6):935-960.
    This article examines how skilled middle-class Tamil women—an Indian regional group—negotiate with gender to strategize immigration to and settlement in the United States by drawing on life-history interviews with 33 first-generation professional women, most of whom entered the United States as family migrants. I find that the women negotiate with gender to configure Tamil Brahminical relations of subordination, thereby asserting their subjectivity through “strident embedded agency” in immigration. In this way, they realize gender non-normative desires for immigration, engage in gender (...)

    Amongst Letters I Am the Vowel A.Namita Goswami - 2019 - philoSOPHIA: A Journal of Continental Feminism 9 (2):20-44.
    This essay conducts a comparative reading of Gayatri Spivak’s discussion of the Hindu epic Mahabharata and Mahasweta Devi’s story “Draupadi.” While scholars have examined Devi’s tribal protagonist Draupadi in conjunction with the high Hindu goddess Draupadi of the epic, I suggest that the former’s viswarupadarshana should be read in contrast to the role of the Mahabharata’s Hindu God Krishna. This comparison shows the feminist and postcolonial import of Devi’s story, as it demonstrates the continuity of caste-based tribal exploitation from antiquity (...)

  10. Raddi, Phisaddi, and Bekar : Locating Spivak’s Originary Queerness in Salman Rushdie’s Shame.Namita Goswami - 2021 - Angelaki 26 (5):38-56.
    Spivak refers to “originary queerness” as a concept she cannot yet theorize. If concepts convey and uphold heterogeneous lived experience, then the paradoxical missing-ness of a corresponding “what...

  15. Who Was Roop Kanwar? The Subject in Question in Contemporary Feminist Theory.Namita Goswami - 2003 - Dissertation, Emory University
    My dissertation is a philosophical analysis of the status of the subject in contemporary feminist theory. I perform this analysis through a case study of Roop Kanwar, a 19 year-old Rajput widow, who was immolated on the funeral pyre of her husband in September 1987 in western India. I argue that the aggregate ontology of the racially marked and colonized female body as object/victim predetermines the subject and its knowledge production, given its categories of identity. Can particularity yield and substantiate (...)

    Smoking as a Job Killer: Reactions to Smokers in Personnel Selection.Nicolas Roulin & Namita Bhatnagar - 2018 - Journal of Business Ethics 149 (4):959-972.
    Decades of tobacco control initiatives have turned public opinion against cigarette smoking. Smokers, once considered glamorous, are now stigmatized in domains including the workplace. Extant literature lacks scrutiny of smoker stigmatization and devaluation within the job selection process, and mechanisms that lead to such outcomes. Using an experimental design, we empirically examine initial reactions to job applicants’ smoking behaviors within two samples. We show that initial impressions are significantly worse when job applicants smoke versus do not in a store-based context. (...)

    Schooling for All in India: Can We Neglect the Demand?Santhakumar Velappan Nair, Namita Gupta & Rama Murthy Sripada - 2016 - Oxford University Press India.
    The volume critically analyses the primary drawbacks of the Indian education system-non-enrolment, dropouts, irregular attendance, and inadequate learning. It establishes the need to strongly encourage parents to recognize the importance of education for their children's future. Arguing that supply-side strategies-free education, midday meals, opening more schools-have not proved effective since the problem of inadequate demand is much larger, the authors delineate the measures that are required to boost the demand for education in India.
