Example text

This required shifting to a new literature and new texts on Thailand, and introduced me to the skilled technocrats who managed research and development programmes and policy in Thailand. Survival strategies included scrambling to learn the language of public health and nutrition, and detaching myself from the ‘Thai culture’ I had been constructing and studying for the past decade. 7 In fact, cultural knowledge was an albatross around my neck, reduced to residual indicators in epidemiological accounting.

In this book I have sacrificed some of the complexities of class and ethnicity. Considerations of Thai gender are presented from the centre, by the centre rather than from the margins. While I am concerned with gender, my focal question concerns women and representation. Peletz reminds us that contemporary feminist anthropology focuses on women not gender, with the result that ‘. . a singular focus on the voices or experiences of women – especially one that fails to examine how these voices and experiences articulate with those of men and with encompassing structures of power and prestige – runs the risk of essentializing “woman”, and otherwise hindering the realization of feminists’ intellectual and political agendas’ (1995:79).

The cards are a reminder of how that public culture exoticizes and reifies Thailand’s image to enhance the country’s international reputation and tourist appeal. This chapter explores how a sense of order is constructed through representations of Thai women, using two metaphors for time – one from Thai etiquette (kalatesa) and one from English literature (palimpsest). I then contrast this with the pragmatics of the Thai women’s movement, showing how a sense of order underlies both representations of the past and contemporary feminist practice.
