    Melancholic politics and the politics of melancholia: The Indian women’s movement.Srila Roy - 2009 - Feminist Theory 10 (3):341-357.
    Mourning, especially melancholic mourning, has recently emerged as a significant site of expressing and addressing loss in feminism. While feminism’s hard-won successes in achieving institutional power globally have brought exuberance over achievement, they have also come with an acute sense of despondency and loss; one that is not easily mourned or relinquished. The institutionalization of feminism in governmental, non-governmental and academic sites has precipitated this sense of loss in India, wherein the discussion of this article is located.

    The Ethical Ambivalence of Resistant Violence: Notes from Postcolonial South Asia.Srila Roy - 2009 - Feminist Review 91 (1):135-153.

Feminist responses towards resistant political violence have, however, been less straightforward than towards the violence of the state, suggesting a more ambivalent ethical position towards (...)
