Later WTO meetings made nominal attempts to involve NGOs, but increased the policing and surveillance of oppositional groups, and, especially after 9/11, held the meetings in increasingly remote locations. Hall’s argument is clearly Foucauldian, but extending Foucault in a way that counters the common (though somewhat overstated) criticism of Foucault as excessively particularistic and as not providing a theory of resistance. See Hoy (1986) for a number of well-stated examples of these claims. Hall’s objects of study include psychology and psychiatry, social science, and administrative practices and institutions, analyzed in a way that addresses both micropolitics and macropolitics.

There are two major strands to the New Science Studies, a more social-historical approach centered on the work of Donna Haraway (1991a, 1991d, 1997, 2000, 2004) and a more anthropological approach centered on the work of Bruno Latour (1979, 1986, 1987, 1993). Both approaches address questions of difference. Haraway’s work, in which she deals with difference, is concerned with race and gender as well as class. Latour, however, is more interested in difference as an abstract, almost mathematical concept, than in gender or sexuality.

S. society that, even if it is increasingly influential in academic circles, is quite marginal in the culture, more broadly conceived. This approach—framing my argument in leftist academic language— 2 : articulating politics 47 focuses on relations between technoscience and transnationalism, two of the “material-semiotic” discourses and practices that interact to produce complex objects and representations. My main concerns, here, are metatheoretical and methodological. I argue that an analysis that focuses on processes of transnationalism and globalization/localization alone would be incomplete; so would be an analysis that focused solely on technoscience.
