Terrains of Consciousness: Multilogical Perspectives on Globalization


Karremann, Isabel; Ackermann, Zeno; Malhotra, Simi; Zaidi, Nishat (2021). Terrains of Consciousness: Multilogical Perspectives on Globalization. Würzburg: Würzburg University Press.

Abstract

TERRAINS OF CONSCIOUSNESS emerges from an Indian-German-Swiss research collaboration. The book makes a case for a phenomenology of globalization that pays attention to locally situated socioeconomic terrains, everyday practices, and cultures of knowledge. This is exemplified in relation to three topics: the tension between ‘terrain’ and ‘territory’ in Defoe’s ‘Robinson Crusoe’ as a pioneering work of the globalist mentality (chapter 1); the relationship between established conceptions of feminism and the concrete struggles of women in India since the 19th century (chapter 2); the exploration of urban space and urban life in writings on India’s capital – from Ahmed Ali to Arundhati Roy (chapter 3).
