From the margins: globalization with(out) home economics
Pies and peas, noughts and crosses, fish and chips, chicken and egg, teaching and learning, home economics and . . . globalization? In psychotherapy, this simple technique of providing a word and another automatically coming to mind is called free association and some of the internationally accepted pairings are noted above. Do we want 'home economics' and 'globalization' to have an automatic association? In this paper, I argue that home economics must make a shift from the margins of patriarchy by re-thinking the ways in which the field is legitimized and positioned if it is to be a key player in taking on the challenges and dilemmas raised by globalization.
