  1. Gender, Agency and Coercion.Sumi Madhok, Anne Phillips & Kalpana Wilson (eds.) - 2013 - Palgrave-Macmillan.
    This collection aims to think critically about agency and explore the relationship between agency and coercion in greater depth. In academic, activist, and policy circles alike, feminist work has re-focused attention onto women as agents rather than as passive victims of overwhelming structures of male institutional power, or less capable of exercising agency by virtue of their class, race, gender or culture. These broadly positive moves are not without risks. Most notably, they can encourage a triumphalist disregard for constraints through (...)

    Coloniality, Political Subjectivation and the Gendered Politics of Protest in a ‘State of Exception’.Sumi Madhok - 2018 - Feminist Review 119 (1):56-71.
    In this paper, I shall make the following propositions: in order to conceptually capture and represent the acts of political protest in a state of exception, we will need to reorient and supplement our representational apparatuses and also our theoretical frameworks for thinking about the gendered modes of protest under emergency laws and political abandonment. Through an analysis of the ‘naked protest’ of the Meira Peibis in Manipur, a ‘state of exception’ in democratic India, I shall argue that a series (...)

    Autonomy, Gendered Subordination and Transcultural Dialogue.Sumi Madhok - 2007 - Journal of Global Ethics 3 (3):335 – 357.
    This paper is a theoretical and empirical investigation into whether persons in subordinate social contexts possess agency and if they do, how do we recognise and recover their agency given the oppressive conditions of their lives. It aims to achieve this through forging closer links between the philosophical arguments and the ethnographic evidence of women's agency. Through such an exercise, this paper hopes to bridge the existing gap between feminist theoretical interventions and feminist politics as well as to increase 'sociological (...)

    A Critical Reflexive Politics of Location, ‘Feminist Debt’ and Thinking From the Global South.Sumi Madhok - 2020 - European Journal of Women's Studies 27 (4):394-412.
    In this article, I raise a question and acknowledge a ‘feminist debt’. The ‘feminist debt’ is to the politics of location, and the question asks: what particular stipulations and enablements does a critical reflexive feminist politics of location put in place for knowledge production and for doing feminist theory? I suggest that there are at least three stipulations/enablements that a critical reflexive politics of location puts in place for knowledge production. Firstly, it demands/enables scholarly accounts to reveal their location within (...)
