Lecture: Intersections and Inequalities of Global Political Economy by V. Spike Peterson, PhD, Professor of International Relations in the School of Government and Public Policy, University of Arizona
Processes of globalization shape--and are shaped by--inequalities of class, race, gender and geopolitics. In her presentation, Professor Peterson will summarize old and new patterns of inequality, interpret their intersections, and consider how these patterns affect global insecurities.
V. Spike Peterson also has courtesy appointments in the Department of Gender and Women’s Studies, Institute for LGBT Studies, International Studies and Center for Latin American Studies. Her 2003 book, A Critical Rewriting of Global Political Economy: Reproductive, Productive and Virtual Economies, introduced an alternative analytics for examining intersections of ethnicity/race, class, gender and national hierarchies in the context of neoliberal globalization. She and Anne Sisson Runyan have recently published Global Gender Issues in the New Millennium. Her current research focuses on informalization, intersectionality, global insecurities and queering states-nations.
