Fires on the border : the passionate politics of labor organizing on the Mexican frontera by Rosemary Hennessy ( Book )
4 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 128 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"The history of the maquiladoras has been punctuated by workers' organized resistance to abysmal working and living conditions. Over years of involvement in such movements, Rosemary Hennessy was struck by an elusive but significant feature of these struggles: the extent to which organizing is driven by attachments of affection and antagonism, belief, betrayal, and identification. What precisely is the "affective" dimension of organizing for justice? Are affects and emotions the same? And how can their value be calculated? Fires on the Border takes up these questions of labor and community organizing--its "affect-culture"--on Mexico's northern border from the early 1970s to the present day. Through these campaigns, Hennessy illuminates the attachments and identifications that motivate people to act on behalf of one another and that bind them to a common cause. The book's unsettling, even jarring, narratives bring together empirical and ethnographic accounts--of specific campaigns, the untold stories of gay and lesbian organizers, love and utopian longing--in concert with materialist theories of affect and the critical good sense of Mexican organizers. Teasing out the integration of affect-culture in economic relations and cultural processes, Hennessy provides evidence that sexuality and gender as strong affect attractors are incorporated in the harvesting of surplus labor. At the same time, workers' testimonies confirm that the capacities for bonding and affective attachment, far from being entirely at the service of capital, are at the very heart of social movements devoted to sustaining life"--

Materialist Feminism and the Politics of Discourse (RLE Feminist Theory) by Rosemary Hennessy ( )
2 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 21 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Materialist Feminism and the Politics of Discourse confronts the impasses in materialist feminist work on rethinking 'woman' as a discursively constructed subject. The book looks at the problem of examining critically the social dimensions on which theories of discourse are premised: how such theories understand 'materiality'; the relation between 'women's experience' and feminist politics, and that between history and discourse. Rosemary Hennessy considers the work of Kristeva, Foucault, Laclau and Mouffe, and argues for a materialist feminist re-articulation of discourse as ideol

From the standpoint of a postmodern marxist feminism, the dissertation addresses the current concern over who feminism speaks for, given that under the pressures of late capitalism, "woman" can no longer be thought of as an obvious monolithic category. Arising out of critiques within marxism and feminism, materialist feminism has contributed to the development of postmodern theories of the discursive construction of the subject, but this work for the most part has tended to privilege gender over other categories of difference and has adhered to a contradictory notion of the feminist standpoint as grounded in "women's experience." The aim of the dissertation is to contribute to the work of overcoming these impasses in materialist feminist theory in order to strengthen its radical oppositional force. I examine how materialist feminism articulates within its theoretical framework various and often contesting discourses and consider the consequences of this eclectic appropriation for the reformation of feminism's subject. I approach this issue by addressing the problems of social analytics, the materiality of discourse, and the discursivity of history. I argue that a post-Althusserian theory of discourse as ideology can supercede many of the contradictions in the materialist theories of discourse proposed by Foucault and Kristeva, especially--both of which have been widely appropriated by feminists, including many materialist feminists. Understanding discourse as ideology offers feminism a global--as opposed to a local--analytic as its mode of reading social relations. A global analytic provides feminism with a more rigorously materialist explanation of the systemic relations between the production of subjectivities across a range of modes of difference and other material practices. Within this theoretical framework feminist praxis can be understood as ideology critique and feminism's subject can be re-thought as a standpoint based not in an empiricist notion of experience but in a counter-hegemonic problematic. The dissertation develops the implications of this notion of standpoint for feminist history and for the project of aligning feminism's political agenda with those of other emancipatory movements
