Zubaan Profile

Zubaan Books
Zubaan is an independent non-profit publishing house. It grew out of India's first Feminist publishing house, Kali for Women. Founded by Urvashi Butalia, who was co-founder of Kali for Women, Zubaan was set up to specifically continue Kali's work. Zubaan, has inherited half the backlist of Kali so that reprints of many backlist titles are assured.

The word 'Zubaan' comes from Hindustani and means, literally, tongue, but it has many other meanings, such as voice, language, speech and dialect.

While Zubaan is continuing to publish in areas similar to its predecessor, we are also expanding into other fields. We plan to:
Begin publishing in Hindi and work actively with publishers in other Indian languages to translate our books.
Organise many more workshops and work in collaboration with other organisations.
Publish more broad based, popular books, though the focus on women will remain central to it.
This expansion is based on the understanding and realization that the women's movement, the realities of women's lives, in India and elsewhere, have changed and expanded considerably.

Some of the distinct lists that are being built in Zubaan are:
Gender and Reproductive Health/Sexuality
Gender and Conflict
Gender and Architecture
Gender and Law
Gender and History/National Movement
Gender and Economics
The North East of India (including essays and fiction)
Fiction in translation, mostly novels
Readers on the Women's Movement/Feminism
Working with Urvashi in Zubaan is a small editorial team that consists of Preeti Gill and Anita Roy.

You can find Zubaan on Facebook too.
