Global Justice and Desire : Queering Economy, Hardback Book


Employing feminist, queer, and postcolonial perspectives, Global Justice and Desire addresses economy as a key ingredient in the dynamic interplay between modes of subjectivity, signification and governance.

Bringing together a range of international contributors, the book proposes that both analyzing justice through the lens of desire, and considering desire through the lens of justice, are vital for exploring economic processes.

A variety of approaches for capturing the complex and dynamic interplay of justice and desire in socioeconomic processes are taken up.

But, acknowledging a complexity of forces and relations of power, domination, and violence - sometimes cohering and sometimes contradictory - it is the relationship between hierarchical gender arrangements, relations of exploitation, and their colonial histories that is stressed.

Therefore, queer, feminist, and postcolonial perspectives intersect as Global Justice and Desire explores their capacity to contribute to more just, and more desirable, economies.
