Social inequality and the politics of representation: a global landscape

Contributor(s): Pascale, Celine-Marie [Editor].
Publisher: Thousand Oaks Sage Publications 2013Description: xxii, 339 p.ISBN: 9781412992213.Subject(s): Social science | Equality | Social stratificationDDC classification: 305 Summary: In a global landscape the representational practices through which inequalities gain meaning are central —both within and across national boundaries. Social Inequality & The Politics of Representation takes a fresh look at how inequalities of class, race, sexuality, gender and nation are constructed in 20 countries on 5 continents. It offers both rich insight and cultural critique—yet it does not offer a universal paradigm, nor is it concerned with debates about scholarship from “the center” or “the periphery.” The collection de-centers North American/European paradigms by placing scholarship from countries around the globe on equal footing.
