Contradictory Lives

Along with Chapters 2 and 3, Chapter 1 situates Baul women in the contexts of locales, communities, and discourse. This introduction presents an overview of Baul women and suggests that they are encumbered by societal expectations even though they are given some latitude as Bauls to travel and perform. The chapter also describes the primary research sites discussed in this book and makes some comparisons between Bauls in West Bengal and Bangladesh.

Keywords:   Bauls, Baul women, agency, gender, India, Bangladesh, ethnography
