Gender Identities in a Globalized World by Ana Martha Gonzalez
Book DescriptionThis cross-disciplinary collection of essays focuses on gender from multiple perspectives, touching on a variety of aspects that range from specific tendencies, such as fashion, to general trends connected to globalisation, human dignity, and world migration. The main themes include human rights, political economy, cultural diversity, democracy, immigration, dignity, care, and shifts in hegemonic male models of societies. The volume differs from others published on gender as it focuses on the impact of globalisation on gender identities, and examines the potent for global masculinities and feminisms, as well as the implications that these might have on the local level. The multidisciplinary approach allows analysis of the topic from several different points of view and methodologies. The pioneering studies in this unique volume will be of great interest to sociologists, feminists, philosophers, and scholars and students of gender identity and globalisation trends.
