• TERRAINS OF CONSCIOUSNESS emerges from an Indian-German-Swiss research collaboration. The book makes a case for a phenomenology of globalization that pays attention to locally situated socioeconomic terrains, everyday practices, and cultures of knowledge. This is exemplified in relation to three topics: - the tension between ‘terrain’ and ‘territory’ in Defoe’s ‘Robinson Crusoe’ as a pioneering work of the globalist mentality (chapter 1) - the relationship between established conceptions of feminism and the concrete struggles of women inTERRAINS OF CONSCIOUSNESS emerges from an Indian-German-Swiss research collaboration.

The book makes a case for a PHENOMENOLOGY OF GLOBALIZATION that pays particular attention to the transformation of locally situated and individually experienced socioeconomic terrains, everyday practices, and cultures of knowledge. This perspective is exemplified in relation to three concrete research topics: - the tension between the concepts of ‘TERRAIN’ and ‘TERRITORY’ in parts one and two of Daniel Defoe’s "Robinson Crusoe as" a pioneering work of the globalist mentality (chapter 1) - the relationship between established abstract conceptions of FEMINISM and the concrete emancipatory struggles and life practices of women in India since the early 19th century (chapter 2) - the exploration of URBAN SPACE and URBAN LIFE as a socio-sensorial terrain in fictional and non-fictional writings on or of Delhi – from Ahmed Ali’s "Twilight in Delhi" (1940) to Arundhati Roy’s "The Ministry of Utmost Happiness" (2017). Throughout, the approach of Terrains of Consciousness is informed by the uncomfortable question of how the ‘liberating’ effects of globalization relate to its limiting and disrupting consequences. In these respects, it is vital to ask how globalization affects the dispossessed inhabitants of the world and its various societies.
