Too Soon for Post-Feminism: The Ongoing Life of Patriarchy in Neoliberal America”

In this paper I seek to bring “patriarchy” back into focus in ways that make sense to a 21st century audience. In the first part of the paper I discuss the ways in which “feminism” has fallen off the contemporary intellectual/political agenda or, if it remains on the agenda, it does so primarily as the study of “women” and “gender” rather than of patriarchy as a system of power.

Do As I Say, Not As I Do: Policing Democratic Language in Post-Conflict Macedonia

Following a 2001 armed conflict in Macedonia, representatives of the European Union and the United States claimed an influential, but unofficial, oversight role on the country’s domestic politics. While Macedonian politicians debated how best to realize post-conflict legislative reforms, these foreign officials marshaled mass media to publicly comment on the Macedonian political process and to pressure domestic political actors toward specific models of liberal democratic governance.
