CfP for a special issue of Gender, Work and Organisation – the special issue deadline is 28th February 2017 and the special issue aims to address the potential for feminist perspectives to enhance our understanding of work and nonhuman animals.
Submissions may address questions such as:
- How can feminist theory be used to reveal and understand the gendered labour of human and nonhuman animals within organizations?
- In what ways can the feminist critical post-humanist and post-anthropomorphist approaches of thinkers like Rosi Braidotti, Karen Barad and Donna Haraway have for revising understandings of organization?
- How are the relations between human and nonhuman workers gendered, and what are the implications for the (re)production of gender inequalities?
- What are the implications of using feminist posthumanist theory for the ontology of the human worker, or who/what can constitute an organizational actor? How much such work advance posthumanist theorising?
- What is the potential for feminist theory to advance organizational concerns with nature, for example, locating contemporary organizational studies with current debates on the anthropocene and climate change?
- How can we overcome the inherent difficulties associated with researching nonhuman actors, including nonhuman animals within organizations?
- Discussions of the scope for ‘de-colonising’ feminist organisational studies, through the embedding of indigenous perspectives.
- Approaches that include how masculinity and non-human animal lives are intertwined and dependent on each other and sometimes in competition with each other, like for example in meat works and other predominantly masculine occupations.
- Studies that examine how nonhuman and human animals work together in contexts like therapy, and management and leadership development, and how gender might intersect in these contexts.
- Studies or theoretical papers that engage with scientific and technical innovations that are blurring the lines between human and non-human in socio-biological contexts.
