There is significant religious and linguistic evidence that Yorùbá society was not gendered in its original form. In this follow-up to The Invention of Women: Making an African Sense of Western Gender Discourses, Oy?wùmí explores the intersections of gender, history, knowledge-making, and the role of intellectuals in the process. She applies the finding of a non-gendered ontology to the institution of Ifa, the most important endogenous system of knowledge in Yorùbá culture, and explores how gender is implicated in interpretations of the knowledge system, as social and ritual practice, and as a cultural institution in a changing world.

Extrait de la couverture : "This volume sets out to investigate critically existing lines of tought about sexuality in Africa, while also creating space for alternative approches. Issues of colonial and contemporary discourses on 'African sexuality' and on 'female genital mutilation' are discussed, as are issues of female agency and of feminist engagement with HIV/AIDS. The volume contributes to current efforts to re-think sexualities in the light of feminist, queer and postcolonial theory."
