Abstract:This article documents the dissemination of a Euro-American focus on 'gender' within academic and development discourse, and the way this particular 'transnational feminism' frames popular debates within the public and media culture of Uganda. The article describes how transnational gender ideologies are taken up, challenged or negotiated within Kampala's public culture, and what this means for those seeking to define themselves as both 'modern' and Ugandan. The article draws on articles in the Kampala press as well as materials from interviews with lecturers and discussion groups with students about 'gender issues' at Makerere University.
