Description - Burning Women by Pompa Banerjee

Pompa Banerjee explores early modern accounts and images of burning women bringing together travellers' accounts on sati in India with the burning of witches in EM Europe, a link that contemporary observers studiously repressed. Ultimately, she's interested in how these practices speak to issues of the punishment of women and ideological debates about the proper behaviour of wives and widows.
