Synopsis: * Offers unique reflections on the connections between market capitalism, the politics of alternatives governance, and the cultural elaboration of social change
* Finds ways to construct political alliances to empower those at the bottom
* Builds a bridge between cultural and economic globalization
Global Shaping and its Alternatives asserts that there is a need for an alternative explanatory framework on globalization—one that rejects fatalism and instead highlights the dynamic roles of states, NGOs, local fractions of capital, democratic movements, and gendered social relations.
About the Author: Yildiz Atasoy is Associate Professor of Sociology and Associate Member in the Latin American Studies Program at Simon Fraser University. She is also a member of the Centre for Global Political Economy and the graduate program in Development Studies at SFU. Her primary area of research deals with long-term historical changes in the world economy and the social, political, and economic dynamics that underlie them. Based on her research of transnationally linked, yet locally distinct Islamist practices, Dr. Atasoy explores the process of entanglement between Islamic and Western ways which is refashioning current global transformations. She grounds her analysis in a theory of social change that links global relations of capital accumulation (including patterns of trade, investment, and labour migration), military alliances and the transnational dynamics of Islamic political movements with the political and discursive tensions of national politics. This set of transnational processes problematizes the dichotomous conception of "global" versus "local," and thus presents a challenge to Euro-American models of economic development. Dr. Atasoy has also done research on the Islamic politics of the veil across a transnational space.
