Chapter 10: Feminist poststructural analysis
Restricted access

This chapter explores the methodological possibilities, opportunities, and challenges when putting feminist poststructural analysis ‘to work’ within Management and Organization Studies. After briefly summarising existing debates and reviews that consider the parameters of poststructural feminism in Management and Organization Studies, it focuses on two related aspects that those pursuing a feminist poststructuralist approach in their research often encounter. The first is the methodological orientation points that encourage us to focus on particular dynamics within our research: notably discourse, identity and subjectivities, and embodiment. The second aspect focuses on some of the more method-related points of play that a poststructuralist feminists lens encourages surrounding reflexivity, data analysis and writing. Throughout the chapter, it identifies some of the tensions in drawing on poststructuralism feminism, both as a totem that can privilege a Global North canon and episteme and the translational implications of putting its theoretical principles into empirical research practice.
