Gender and Aviation

    Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingEntry for encyclopedia/dictionarypeer-review


    Aviation technologies and operations networks are integral to globalization. Ethnographic investigation of global apparatuses offers important insights and challenges for the anthropology of gender. However, social science discourse about aviation work itself, for industrial and legal reasons, has historically been dominated by management and applied research approaches. With reference to commercial passenger aviation, there is often a taken-for-granted consumerist understanding of the industry for anthropologists located in the global North or the upper classes of the global South that is largely to do with subjective emplacement and the politics of visibility.
