The Department of International Relations invites you to its fifth event of the “Voices around the World: International Relations in Theory and Practice” series being organised on 25th February 2021. A guest session is being delivered by V Spike Peterson on ‘Gendered Valorisations on a Global Scale: Unpacking International Political Economy.’
Abstract: Economic systems fundamentally reflect what we value. Then what do we value? Feminists argue that ways of identifying, thinking and acting coded ‘masculine’ are structurally valued over – and literally at the expense of – those coded ‘feminine.’ Then how does the governing code of hierarchical gender shape today’s global political economy? Responding to these questions, our conversation will explore how values are constructed and sustained, and whose values ‘count’; how entwined heterosexual and racial logics produce stark inequalities both within and between nations; and how gendered hierarchies produce differential valorizations on a global scale, with profound implications for all of our lives.
