Tittel

Mirror, mirror on the wall, who´s most powerful of them all? - Gender as a symbolic and social structure in organizations

Vitenskapelig sammendrag

The primary goal of the Mirror, mirror project (2013-2016) is to explore the cultural and social dynamics of gender in influential sectors of society, such as the financial elite, the petrolium industry and the military. What is it about gender, power, and leadership that create a situation wherein men continue to be the leaders of powerful organizations, and how can one think politically about it? This project sets out to demonstrate how perspectives from the Humanities and cultural theoretical perspectives can provide insight into the symbolic and cultural meanings of gendered power. The project will address questions such as: What symbolic constructions of gender and leadership are found in powerful organizations, as well as in alternative political organizations, and political visions? How are these symbolic constructions connected with structural distribution of power between the sexes? What are the backward-looking and/or forward-looking scientific, cultural, and symbolic meanings of gendered power? How do cultural representations effect recruitment and career development of women and men in the organizations?
