Navigating Neoliberalism in the Academy, Nonprofits, and Beyond

Soniya Munshi and Craig Willse

This issue of S&F Online looks at the nonprofit and the university as two key sites in which neoliberal social and economic formations are constituted and contested. Emerging out of a 2009 meeting at the American Studies Association Annual Meeting convened by Munshi and Willse and drawing on the theoretical and historical models articulated by INCITE! Women, Gender Non-conforming, and Trans People of Color Against Violence, the collection asks: What are the possibilities for transformative politics given the capacity of neoliberal capital to incorporate, absorb and/or neutralize demands for social justice?

Gender, Justice, and Neoliberal Transformations

Guest edited by Elizabeth Bernstein and Janet R. Jakobsen

This issue of The Scholar & Feminist Online forges new ground by weaving together issues of gender and sexuality, usually sidelined in conversations about neoliberalism, with questions of the economy and political processes. Emerging out of a 2012 international workshop on the mutual imbrication of economic, cultural, and political structures of neoliberalism with the vast changes in gendered and sexual life, “Gender, Justice, and Neoliberal Transformations” seeks new lines of inquiry to explore the extreme disparities of wealth across the globe, as well as new and old forms of social inequality.
