Global Political Economies of Gender and Sexuality

Series edited by Nicki Smith, Adrienne Roberts and Juanita Elias

This book series brings together scholarship from leading and emerging scholars working on the intersections between gender and/or sexuality in political economy. It seeks to move beyond the ‘blindness’ of International Political Economy to feminist, gender, trans*, queer and masculinity studies in order to more fully capture the complex and contested transformations associated with globalization, capitalism and neo-liberalism.

The books published in this interdisciplinary series seek to understand the ways in which interrelated political and economic processes are imposed upon and reproduced by gendered and/or sexualised bodies; inquire into the complex ways in which gender and/or sexuality represent sites of resistance and struggle in the international political economy; and consider what the erasure and/or inclusion of gender and sexuality can tell us about the terrain of International Political Economy itself as a field of study.

The series welcomes proposals for monographs and carefully curated edited collections on topics including, but not limited to: capitalism and feminist theory; political economy of reproduction; neo-liberalism, capitalism and embodied subjectivities; commodification of bodies and body parts; gendered and/or sexualized political economy of development and destitution; international sex tourism, migration and human trafficking; economic crisis and social reproduction; and postcolonial feminist interventions into political economy and the globalization debate.
