Gender, Entrepreneurial Subjectivity, and Pathologies of Personal Finance

4:30 PM  - 5:30 PM
Thursday Feb 14, 2013
Alexander G. Hill Ballroom, Kagin Commons

Dr. Miranda Joseph, Associate Professor and Director of Graduate Studies at the University of Arizona will be on campus February 14. She will be speaking in Kagin Commons at 4:30 pm. The presentation examines the constitution of gendered norms for personal financial attitudes and behaviors through the production and circulation of knowledge across the domains of popular culture, marketing research, and legitimate social science. It addresses a nexus of two central features of neoliberalism: governmentality and financialization. It argues that gendered norms play a key role in articulating neoliberal norms more broadly. Specifically, negative, pathologized, portrayals of women as impulsive shopaholics on one hand and paralyzed non-investors on the other indicating the boundaries of responsible entrepreneurial subjectivity.

Open to all!
