Real Men Say No: Representations of Masculinity in Hinduism
Loriliai Biernacki is associate professor of religious studies at the University of Colorado Boulder. Her research interests include Hinduism, ethics, critical theory, and gender. Her first book, Renowned Goddess of Desire: Women, Sex and Speech in Tantra (Oxford University Press, 2007) won the Kayden Award in 2008. She is currently working on a translation of a Sanskrit philosophical text by the eleventh-century Indian philosopher Abhinavagupta that addresses God and cosmology and on an edited volume that addresses panentheism—God as both transcendent and immanent in the world—across world religious traditions.
