The article ‘Dilemmas of Feminist Practice in Transnational Spaces: Solidarity, Personal Growth, and Potential Solutions’ (co-authored with Kerrie Thornhill) was recently published in the journal Gender, Place and Culture. It is an introduction to a special issue, co-edited by Dr Rajan, on the topic of ‘Revisiting Dilemmas in Transnational Research and Practice’.
"In this article, we introduce Revisiting Dilemmas in Transnational Feminist Research and Practice, a themed section of Gender, Place and Culture. Composed of four articles and this Introduction, the section builds from a core problem, documented in the literature, that feminist engagements between the global ‘South’ and ‘North’ can lead Northerners or outsiders to inadvertently essentialise the ‘culture’ of underprivileged groups and hold to paternalistic attitudes towards marginalised communities, even while attempting to confront and mitigate inequalities."
