Women's Studies Quarterly #34: The Global and the Intimate: Wsq: Spring/Summer 2006by Geraldine Pratt
Synopses & Reviews
WSQ, a journal dedicated to multi-disciplinary, cutting edge perspectives on women’s issues, builds on the impressive achievements of its predecessor, Women’s Studies Quarterly, in an exploration of how we think locally and act globally. The term “global and the intimate” is shorthand for an array of issues pervading the twenty-first century’s brave new world where hyper-technology continually erodes the space between “public” and “private”: for example, how the internet and surveillance technologies penetrate the sanctuary of our homes; mass market branding vs. choice in the globalized marketplace; the intimacy of collaboration across transnational spaces.
New investigation into how globalization molds women's everyday lives explodes old theories.
