Globalization, Intersectional Inequalities and Narrative Struggles

Research output: Contribution to book/anthology/report/conference proceedingBook chapterResearchpeer-review


The research fields on transitional justice and memory politics are useful if we want to solve the political puzzle, why the silences and denials that relate to the memories of violent conflicts in Indonesia continue, despite an increased acceptance of global norms on transitional justice. In this chapter, I explain how innovative transnational and gender perspectives, such as found in postcolonial and feminist research, can address the limitations resulting from the assumptions about power relations and globalization in these research fields. I combine theoretical understandings of gender and globalization with theories on resistance, including how resistance relates to the political dynamics of emotions and emotional agency after trauma. I end by developing my approach to the analysis of personal, strategic and social narratives.
