AO. discursive risk - Fortun and Cherkasky

  • AO: Contrary to much of the development literature I have been reading which emphasizes the normative value of collaboration as empowering and benefiting, this piece highlights difference and potential for marginalization even within the project of “collaboration.” The analysts focus heavily on the meta and meso levels of analysis (asking questions largely at the level of the “organization although they define organization not just in the narrow sense of the word but also as broader discourse like feminism). They also conduct analysis at the level of edxo, working out the expertise and “counter-expertise” relied upon in different collaborative formations.
