Scandalous Economics

Gender and the Politics of Financial Crises

Edited by Aida A. Hozić and Jacqui True

Oxford Studies in Gender and International Relations

  • Surveys the landscape of the ongoing globalized financial crisis and its consequences from the perspective of gender and feminist theory
  • Breaks new ground by arguing that normalization of the current economic order in the face of its obvious breakdown(s) has been facilitated precisely by co-opting feminist and queer perspectives into the language of policy responses to the crisis
  • Demonstrates how feminist political economy analysis contributes important insights to the critical enterprise in the fields of International Political Economy (IPE) and International Relations
  • Analyzes scandals, media narratives and popular culture as THE gendered texts of the economic crisis
