Keywords: Globalization, Civil society


This paper is an account of the author's experience of aspects of globalization that are generally overlooked in market- and statecentred discourses. She uses her personal experience of attending several academic conferences as a way of analysing the relationship between the market, struggle, politics, and identity. The paper also provides a critique of the concept of "civil society" as a celebrated "space" of plurality and resistance.
