Publication of the Handbook on Gender in Asia, by Edward Elgar Publishing and edited by Shirlena Huang, National University of Singapore, and Kanchana N. Ruwanpura, University of Edinburgh and 2019-2020 IAS-Nantes fellow.

The Handbook on Gender in Asia critically examines, through a gender perspective, five broad themes of significance to Asia: the ‘Theory and Practice’ of researching in Asia; ‘Gender, Ageing and Health’; ‘Gender and Labour’; ‘Gendered Migrations and Mobilities’; and ‘Gender at the Margins’. With each chapter providing an overview of the key intellectual developments on the issue under discussion, as well as empirical examples to examine how the Asian case sheds light on these debates, this collection will be an invaluable reference for scholars of gender and Asia.
