Globalizing and Gendered Forces

The Contemporary Militarization of Pacific/Oceania

(p.318) Chapter 17 Globalizing and Gendered Forces
Gender and Globalization in Asia and the Pacific

Teresia K. Teaiwa

University of Hawai'i Press

This chapter attempts to find a middle path between criticizing powerful institutions that on a global scale create and exploit inequalities among people and acknowledging the agency of the peoples of a particular region—Pacific/Oceania. It shows how the globalizing and gendered forces of militarism in Pacific/Oceania are not only external impositions, but also emerge from within the region as expressions of social, cultural, political, and economic agency. By doing so, the chapter opens up a discussion that may enable progressives to reexamine our configurations of the global and to avoid marginalizing and trivializing practices that prevent us all from accurately comprehending—and where necessary, apprehending—globalizing processes.

Keywords:   globalizing processes, gender, Pacific/Oceania, globalizing forces, gendered forces, militarism, inequalities
