Klass och postmodernism - ett feministiskt val

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


Postmodernism has been pointed out – from both left and right, from feminists and anti-feminists – as the dangerous ”other”. Therefore it is provoking to apply postmodern methods and insights to modern class theory. By way of reasoning with Karl Marx and Max Weber, and with older as well as contemporary feminist critics of the concept of class such as Gayle Rubin, Joan Acker, Beverley Skeggs, Nancy Fraser and Judith Butler, I aim to find reconciliation between feminism and class beyond the great modern class narrative.
