Eine hegemonietheoretische Aneignung Foucaults und deren Nutzen für die feministische Staatstheorie
What is the use of appropriating Foucault· s studies of governmentality out of a Gramscian perspective for a feminist state theolY? In order to give an answer to this question we suggest four aspects of convergence between Gramsci' s theolY of hegemony and Foucault's studies of gouvernementality. In doing so, we also argue that Foucault's approach to state/power can be interpreted within a materialist state theory. In a second step we discuss how these aspects can be used for a feminist materialistic approach to the state in order to explain both, how state structures are gendered and how the state governs gender and gender relations.
