Example text

To further clarify the orientation adopted in this book, I conclude by reviewing an interpretive (semiotic/poststructuralist) model of language. The divided terrain of globalization studies Disciplinary commitments The fragmentation of knowledge due to disciplinary divisions and the analytical "blinders" they impose has long been a target of critique, and rightly so. But the blurring of boundaries so prominent in globalization — and amplified by information technologies — exposes these blinders as especially debilitating.

5 The transition from modernity to postmodernity — like the transition to modernity — is less a definitive "break" than a perceptible transformation involving large-scale or structural changes. Moreover, the unevenness of effects means that the transition itself varies, and occurs at different paces in different places, or in some places hardly at all. I identify globalization with postmodernity not to reify yet another dichotomy, or make a definitional claim about historical discontinuities, but to opt for what I consider a productive analytical strategy.

For the most part, I use masculinism to refer to the system of sex/gender relations and their hierarchical manifestation. This is in preference to patriarchy, which I avoid using due to its association with ahistorical and universalizing claims. The risk of over-generalizing is also a problem when referring to "masculinity" in the singular. The purpose and macro-orientation of this study, however, lead me to neglect important differences among masculinities (and femininities) in favor of focusing on "dominant patterns of masculinity, or 'hegemonic masculinity,' that operate at the level of the whole society and that shore up male power and advantage" (Hooper 2001, 54, citing Connell 1987, 183-188).
