内容説明

The changing nature of waged work in contemporary advanced industrial nations is one of the most significant aspects of political and economic debate. It is also the subject of intense debate among observers of gender. "Capital Culture" explores these changes focusing particularly on the gender relations between the men and women who work in the financial services sector. The multiple ways in which masculinities and femininities are constructed is revealed through the analysis of interviews with dealers, traders, analysts and corporate financiers. Drawing on a range of disciplinary approaches, the various ways in which gender segregation is established and maintained is explored. In fascinating detail, the everyday experiences of men and women working in a range of jobs and in different spaces, from the dealing rooms to the boardrooms, are examined.This volume is unique in focusing on men as well as women, showing that for men too there are multiple ways of doing gender at work. For these men and women the places and spaces in which they work affect as well as reflect acceptable ways of doing gender. "Capital Culture" is essential reading for upper-level students and above of Sociology, Geography, Social Policy, Anthropology and Management Studies.
