Gender and Money

Reproduction and circulation, when thought about in the context of money or bodies, appear to be highly gendered phenomena. Intricate connections between different systems of exchange and gender have been recognized around the globe, in different societies and different periods. Yet, the theme still seems understudied and undertheorized. We want to rethink the topic beyond static classifications of numbers and images, with an emphasis on dynamic processes – of (re)making, (re)using, (re)conceiving. Gender and Money therefore addresses the theme under different parameters, including all forms of money understood broadly as tokens of (real or symbolic) exchange rather than currency. Moreover, we want to be attentive to the intersectionality of gender with age, class, social status, race or ethnicity.
