Gender Matters in Political Economy

LSE Gender Institute and Department of International Relations Leverhulme Trust public lecture

Gender Matters in Political Economy’ interrogates mainstream political economic approaches from an intersectional perspective, and makes the case for the importance of gender as an analytic tool rather than empirical object of inquiry. The lecture sets up the range of issues the series as a whole is concerned with, and speaks to a general as well as specialist audience. This is the first of four lectures under the overall title 'Gendering Political Economy: Globalisation, Informalisation and Conflict'. The series foregrounds an intersectional approach to globalization, demonstrates the importance of considering a range of spheres to properly understand the global political economy, and, through attention to conflict zones, focuses on how such an approach can help understand world politics today.

Professor Peterson is Visiting Leverhulme Professor at LSE in 2007 and 2008. She is Professor of Political Science at University of Arizona; her most recent book is A Critical Rewriting of Global Political Economy: Integrating Reproductive, Productive and Virtual Economies (2003).
