    From the academy to the boardroom: Methodological challenges and insights on transnational business feminism2019In: Feminist review (Print), ISSN 0141-7789, E-ISSN 1466-4380, no 121, p. 53-65Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Increasingly, corporations are championing the cause of gender equality and women's empowerment in the Global South. Tapping into notions about women's role as caregivers, empowerment promotion is simultaneously meant to lead to family and community development, profitability for those who invest in women and girls and economic growth. While emerging feminist scholarship on this kind of 'transnational business feminism' (TBF) (Roberts, 2012, 2015) has largely scrutinised gender governance based on visual and textual materials produced by corporations themselves, this article expands the methodological engagement with TBF by reflecting on how we translated the concept into two distinct field-based research projects. The article compares and contrasts our situated fieldwork experiences, focusing in particular on accessing corporate elites and development partners and the epistemological rifts that emerged in conversations with them. It documents how our experiences of blockages, hostile relations and miscommunications have shaped our critical feminist research, and points to some of the power relations at work within TBF.

    Düşmanın Düşmanı: Queerfeminist anti-kapitalist tasavvurlara duyulan ihtiyaç ve toplumsal cinsiyet karşıtı politikalar2018In: Kaos GL, ISSN 1302-5015, Vol. 163, p. 43-46Article in journal (Other (popular science, discussion, etc.))
    Abstract [tr]

    Bu kısa makalede, eleştirel feminizme düşen bu iki zorlu görevi, toplumsal cinsiyet eşitliği ve cinsel çeşitliliğin radikal bir şekilde tekrardan politize edilmesi meselesini tartışacağız. 

    Ekonomik rekabet ve büyümeye dair hâkim çıkarları ile çatışmadıkça kapitalizm, ekolojik tüketimden kadınların güçlenmesine, LGBT haklarından barışa her türlü şeyi kucaklayabileceğini kanıtlamıştır. Kadınların güçlenmesi, büyük-ölçekli şirketler gibi bir dizi neo-liberal küresel yönetim aktörlerince desteklenirken, solcu ve feminist eleştirmenler feminizmin bu şekilde kullanımının depolitize edici sonuçları olabileceğine dikkat çekmiştir (Fraser 2009; Eisenstein 2009; Roberts 2015).  

    Fakat toplumsal cinsiyet eşitliğinin tekrardan politize edilmesi için yapılan feminist çağrılar, akademik ve aktivist çevrelerin dışında pek bir etki yaratmadı. Bunun yerine, beklenmedik bir şekilde, toplumsal cinsiyet ve cinsellik meseleleri başka bir alanda tekrardan politize edildi: giderek daha çok ulusal ve uluslararası, dindar ve seküler muhafazakâr aktör, toplumsal cinsiyet eşitliğini temel alan politik perspektife, cinsellik eğitimine, kadına karşı şiddet ile mücadele etmeye yönelik BM politikalarına, eşcinsel evlilik ve kürtaj gibi meseleleri kapsayan ve adına “toplumsal cinsiyet ideolojisi” dedikleri şeye karşı birleşti. Yıllardır süren örgütlenmelerinin sonucunda, bu aktörlerin etkileri küresel, yapılanmaları ise genelde ulus aşırı hale geldi (bkz. ör. Kuhar & Paternotte 2017; Korolczuk & Graff 2018). 

    Peki, toplumsal cinsiyet eşitliği, cinsel çeşitlilik ve toplumsal cinsiyet karşıtı hareketlerin depolitize edici mutabakatlarının buluştuğu bu kavşağın ortasında, “toplumsal cinsiyeti” yeniden politize etmek için seçenekler neler? Benzer bir şekilde, küresel şirketler toplumsal cinsiyet eşitliğinin ve LGBTQ haklarının destekçileri olarak ortaya çıktığında, bunun sonucunda da toplumsal cinsiyet karşıtı hareketin hedefi haline geldiğinde, düşmanın düşmanını dost haline getirmek için alternatifler nelerdir? Bu kısa makalede, eleştirel feminizme düşen bu iki zorlu görevi, toplumsal cinsiyet eşitliği ve cinsel çeşitliliğin radikal bir şekilde tekrardan politize edilmesi meselesini tartışacağız.

    A bulletin board of dreams: corporate empowerment promotion and feminist implications2016In: International feminist journal of politics, ISSN 1461-6742, E-ISSN 1468-4470, Vol. 18, no 4, p. 528-543Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article examines the premises of corporate solutions to gender inequality in the Global South. In feminist debates, businesses' increasing emphasis on women's empowerment has been discussed both in terms of increasing feminist impact and the co-optation of feminist demands. To explore the ideological effects of corporate gender practices, focus is placed on the Coca-Cola Company's global 5by20 campaign, which has the stated aim to empower five million women as small-scale entrepreneurs around the world and, in a win-win fashion, to double sales by 2020. Based on interviews and participatory observations in Mexico, this article traces a particular narrative of empowerment, envisioned as a transition from dependency to self-sufficiency and threatened by psychological and cultural restraints rather than material conditions. It shows that self-help and positive thinking are essential affective drives, thus reinforcing market-based, individualized development strategies. In response to feminist debates, the article concludes that corporate gender practices can be seen as part of a neoliberal transposition of equality concerns from a political to an economic domain. In effect, when initiatives such as 5by20 promote the accumulation of human capital to enhance gender equality, they simultaneously work to legitimize the inequalities that are necessarily entailed in competitive capitalism.

    Capital visions: scripting progress and work in Nicaraguan free-trade zones2011In: Latin American perspectives, ISSN 0094-582X, E-ISSN 1552-678X, Vol. 38, no 5, p. 74-92Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The electoral loss of the Sandinistas in 1990 marked the beginning of a transformation agenda in Nicaragua aimed at dismantling the revolutionary legacy. During the presidency of Enrique Bolanos (2002-2007), efforts to attract transnational capital to tax-exempt free-trade zones intensified. Advertising campaigns directed toward presumptive investors, workers, and the general public attempted to brand Nicaragua as an ideal destination for transnational capital, frame neoliberal restructurings in terms of a common good, and depict free-trade zones as a vehicle for female emancipation. Analysis of some of the products of these campaigns highlights efforts to legitimate new forms of the state and citizenship and suggests that the narrative of progress is troubled by intersecting power relations of gender and class that open the way for divergent interpretations of the global division of labor.

    Capital visions: the politics of transnational production in Nicaragua2010Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    In processes of economic integration, neoliberal discourse and corresponding notions of development comprise some of the most readily available imaginaries of political and social interaction and change. However, these processes are always also locally produced and negotiated. Engaging with discourse theory, Marxism and postcolonial feminist theory, this dissertation brings together “macro” and “micro” aspects of globalization. The aim is to interrogate discursive reinforcements of and challenges to global orders of production and divisions of labor. With a focus on representations of Free Trade Zones (FTZs), which are tax-exempted enclaves for export production, the study explores competing meanings attributed to the operation of transnational capital in Nicaragua. Based on policy documents, political speeches, promotional videotapes and interviews, the political rhetoric of two governments with competing agendas is analyzed: the neoliberal/conservative government of the Liberal Constitutionalist Party (2002–2007), which framed the FTZs in terms of national progress, and the leftist government of the Sandinista National Liberation Front (2007– ), which attempts to reconnect to the country’s revolutionary past. In this way efforts to formulate legitimate political agendas in the context of shifting relations between states and markets are detailed, together with constructions of citizens and workers along differentiations of class and gender. Relying on interviews with FTZ workers, the study examines ways to interpret, inhabit or resist imperative subject positions at the intersections of contending projects of nation-building and transnational orders of production, in conjunction with a discussion of the uneasy distinction between representation and appropriation that troubles transnational feminist research projects.
