The Force of Domesticity

Filipina Migrants and Globalization

Taking as her subjects migrant Filipina domestic workers in Rome and Los Angeles, transnational migrant families in the Philippines, and Filipina migrant entertainers in Tokyo, Parreñas documents the social, cultural, and political pressures that maintain women’s domesticity in migration, as well as the ways migrant women and their children negotiate these adversities. Parreñas examines the underlying constructions of gender in neoliberal state regimes, export-oriented economies such as that of the Philippines, protective migration laws, and the actions and decisions of migrant Filipino women in maintaining families and communities, raising questions about gender relations, the status of women in globalization, and the meanings of greater consumptive power that migration garners for women. The Force of Domesticity starkly illustrates how the operation of globalization enforces notions of women’s domesticity and creates contradictory messages about women’s place in society, simultaneously pushing women inside and outside the home.

Hired Daughters

Domestic Workers among Ordinary Moroccans

Hired Daughters examines a fading tradition of domestic service in which rural girls familiar to ordinary Moroccan families were placed in their homes until marriage. In this tradition of "bringing up," the girls are considered "daughters of the house," and part of their role in the family is to help with the housework. Gradually, this tradition is transforming into one in which workers unfamiliar to their host families are paid a wage and may not stay long, but where the Islamic ethics of charity, religious reward, and gratitude still inform expectations on both sides. Mary Montgomery examines why Moroccans so often talk about their domestic workers as daughters, what this means for workers and employers, and how this is changing in contemporary Morocco. Prioritizing the experiences and perspectives of these women, Montgomery charts the tension that has developed between socially embedded, loyal domestic workers who operate within narratives of kinship and obligation and women who seek greater individualization, privacy, and self-empowerment. Hired Daughters offers a nuanced understanding of a world that bridges public and private, morality and money, family and outsiders. In doing so, it provides an intimate consideration of contemporary Moroccan households as economic enterprises and sites of navigation between the traditional and the global.

Sisters and the English Household

Domesticity and Women's Autonomy in Nineteenth-Century English Literature

Sisters and the English Household revalues unmarried adult sisters in nineteenthcentury English literature as positive figures of legal and economic autonomy representing productive labor in the domestic space. As a crucial site of contested values, the adult unmarried sister carries the discursive weight of sustained public debates about ideals of domesticity in nineteenth-century England. Engaging scholarly histories of the family, and providing a detailed account of the 70-year Marriage with a Deceased Wife’s Sister controversy, Anne Wallace traces an alternative domesticity anchored by adult sibling relations through Dorothy Wordsworth’s journals; William Wordsworth’s poetry; Mary Lamb’s essay “On Needle-Work”; and novels by Jane Austen, Elizabeth Gaskell, Charles Dickens, Dinah Mulock Craik and George Eliot. Recognizing adult sibling relationships, and the figure of the adult unmarried sibling in the household, as primary and generative rather than contingent and dependent, and recognizing material economy and law as fundamental sources of sibling identity, Sisters and the English Household resets the conditions for literary critical discussions of sibling relations in nineteenth-century England.

Recontextualizing Asian American Domesticity

Surveying twelve texts produced over the course of a century, this book examines the politics of domesticity in Asian American women's literature. While it takes on some of the common tropes of Asian American literary criticism, such as interracial romance, the conflicts of assimilation, and the mother-daughter relationship, the focus on the white American woman who mediates the relationship of the Asian American woman with America forces us to rethink the familiar.

"This book, Digital Domesticity: Media, Materiality, and Home Life, is concerned with the home, but it is not bounded by the home. While the home provides a necessary anchor point for our empirical and theoretical work, we are well aware that the home is not self-contained, but is a node in multiple commercial, cultural, and technical networks, all of which interact, and all with local implications and global reach. The home's socio-technical ecology operates in recursive relations with these much larger ecologies, none of which can be ignored if the home is to be understood. This book unearths this digital domesticity through accounts of evolving socio-technical relations as they unfold in processes of: adopting and adapting to new innovations; using, maintaining, as well as neglecting the complex of technologies in the home; and, confronting the obsolescence of particular technologies and failure of systems of consumer technologies"--

Sports and Inequality is a comprehensive collection of annotated writings examining the legal and social implications of discrimination in both the professional and amateur sports contexts. The text examines the full scope of sports discrimination issues, specifically, the history of and contemporary experience with discrimination based on race, gender, disability, ethnic background, age, religion, and sexual orientation.Topics embrace the paradigmatic discrimination issues, including disparities in employment and educational contexts and the exclusion of persons from public facilities or services based on race, gender, or disability. A considerable portion of the book is devoted to the absence of racial and gender diversity both on the playing fields and in the front office, with particular emphasis on hiring, advancement, and compensation. The book also addresses less obvious examples of inequality, such as the effect of offensive logos on trademark certification; private clubs and the extent to which their systematic exclusion of minorities and women can and should be combated; NCAA eligibility criteria; abuse of spouses or partners by athletes and mistreatment of athletes, particularly young women, by coaches and other authority figures; and a score of related subjects.The text considers its topics from a broad spectrum of perspectives, utilizing both legal and non-legal resources — judicial opinions, statutory provisions, and articles and book excerpts from a variety of disciplines — to offer a wide-ranging survey of views on sports and inequality. The writings are supplemented with extensive notes, questions, references, and in-class exercises.
