Description : A timely collection of essays, Contested Intimacies offers five unique analyses of the ways that sexuality, gender, and the law interact in eastern and southern African countries, primarily Uganda and South Africa. The authors argue strenuously for social critiques of the law that attend to the intricate intersections between different aspects of identity, whether class, race, national identity, within national, continental, and global debates about the status of gender and sexual minorities. Contested Intimacies creates a critical space in which feminists and LGBTI communities, along with their allies, can forge new strategies in the effort to create a more just world, whether at the level of immediate locality, nation, or the continent. Siber Ink Publishers are proud to have collaborated with The International Academic Programmes Office (IAPO) and The Centre for African Studies (CAS), both at UCT, to make this publication possible.

Description : Adult Domestic Workers in Uganda: An Analysis of Human Rights and Social Injustice looks at adult domestic work within the framework of human rights and social injustice. It highlights the marginalisation of domestic workers in human rights covenants and other legal instruments, and examines the various ways in which the human rights of most of these workers are infringed. The situation of domestic workers is not widely discussed. Even less do people consider that the circumstances under which most domestic workers perform their tasks, which are crucial to the stability of many urban households, epitomise a blatant breach of human rights in addition to constituting cases of gross social injustice. The ?ndings of this study can be generalised to domestic work throughout Uganda, and obviously many other African countries, since the case studies are a microcosm of what takes place in many households across the continent. The book strongly recommends regularising as well as improving the terms and conditions of service of domestic workers, with a view to ensuring respect for their human rights and attainment of social justice.

Description : Religion is defined by the author in terms of religious and cultural concepts. She explains the impact of religion and culture on gender and development in a patriarchal society. The assumptions, theories and philosophies related to gender and their impact on women in the development process are discussed. Gender is viewed from a historical perspective, focusing on the gendered differentiation of roles and societal expectations, and relates this to violence and HIV/AIDS, before dealing with gender within the context of development concerns. She also discusses the dominant faiths, including Hinduism, Confucianism, Judaism, Christianity, Islam, the Baha'l Faith and the various religions of the Near East as well as those of ancient Greece and Rome. The study also deliberates on women's liberation movements and addresses issues of gender empowerment and development. Finally it emphasizes the needs for gender mainstreaming in all government and NGO programmes to ensure that gender concerns and imbalances are addressed. Alice P. Tuyizere teaches Religious Education Methods in the School of Education at Makerere University.

Description : This second handbook offers all new content in which readers will find a thoughtful and measured interrogation of significant contemporary thinking and practice in urban education. Each chapter reflects contemporary cutting-edge issues in urban education as defined by their local context. One important theme that runs throughout this handbook is how urban is defined, and under what conditions the marginalized are served by the schools they attend. Schooling continues to hold a special place both as a means to achieve social mobility and as a mechanism for supporting the economy of nations. This second handbook focuses on factors such as social stratification, segmentation, segregation, racialization, urbanization, class formation and maintenance, and patriarchy. The central concern is to explore how equity plays out for those traditionally marginalized in urban schools in different locations around the globe. Researchers will find an analysis framework that will make the current practice and outcomes of urban education, and their alternatives, more transparent, and in turn this will lead to solutions that can help improve the life-options for students historically underserved by urban schools.
