Chandra Talpade MohantyChandra Talpade Mohanty (born 1955) is a Distinguished Professor of Women's and Gender Studies, Sociology, and the Cultural Foundations of Education and Dean's Professor of the Humanities at Syracuse University. Mohanty, a postcolonial and transnational feminist theorist, has argued for the inclusion of a transnational approach in exploring women’s experiences across the world. She is author of ''Feminism Without Borders: Decolonizing Theory, Practicing Solidarity'' (Duke University Press, 2003 and Zubaan Books, India, 2004; translated into Korean, 2005, Swedish, 2007, and Turkish, 2009, Japanese, 2012 and Italian, 2012), and co-editor of ''Third World Women and the Politics of Feminism'' (Indiana University Press, 1991), ''Feminist Genealogies, Colonial Legacies, Democratic Futures'' (Routledge, 1997), ''Feminism and War: Confronting U.S. Imperialism'', (Zed Press, 2008), and ''The Sage Handbook on Identities'' (coedited with Margaret Wetherell, 2010).
Her work focuses on transnational feminist theory, anti-capitalist feminist praxis, anti-racist education, and the politics of knowledge. Central to Mohanty’s transnational mission is the project of building a "non-colonizing feminist solidarity across the borders," through an intersectional analysis of race, nation, colonialism, sexuality, class and gender.
