dc.description An interdisciplinary graduate student journal of the Cynthia Nelson Institute for Gender and Women's Studies at the American University in Cairo. en
dc.description.abstract Introduction: Shifting Paradigms through Gender and Sexuality: Our task in stringing together six essays with an overarching theme that could create confluence while positioning gender and sexuality as the kind of antagonisms Foucault may have imagined in writing these words has resulted in a focus on paradigms � disciplinary, ideological, sociopolitical and cultural � and the matrix of power where subjects and paradigms enter into dialogue. Against the backdrop of an ongoing financial crisis and its implications for how global processes of subjection are made rational and strategic by the language of neoliberal statecraft and a spectrum of normative legal frameworks and ideologies, our editorial collective has been forced to consider whether processes of subjection are necessarily ones which produce identities, or rather just organizational categories that are too often mistaken for identities. en
