Abstract:This article explores the discursive construct of globalization through the prism of gender and its implications for and effects on the quest for an African Renaissance. It argues that since humans are gendered, so human institutions and discourses such as globalization are permeated and informed by the discourse of gender and the hierarchies inherent in them. Since discourses on the African Renaissance are conceptualized and framed within the hegemonic discourse of globalization, they become entangled in globalization's gendered nature and become either complicit or subversive. The article identifies and discusses the multifaceted implications and effects of a hegemonic, masculine neoliberal globalization discourse on the various facets of the African Renaissance, and suggests possible solutions. The purpose is then to explore the notion of the multiciplicity of discourses on both globalization and the African Renaissance. Bibliogr., note, sum. [Journal abstract]
