Beyond Foucault: Toward a User-Centered Approach to Sexual Harassment Policy.
Ranney, Frances J.
Technical Communication Quarterly, v9 n1 p9-28 Win 2000
Discusses how United States national policy regarding sexual harassment exemplifies the Foucauldian paradigm in its attempt to regulate sexuality through seemingly authorless texts. Proposes a user-centered approach to policy drafting that values the knowledge of workers as users and makers of workplace policy. Argues that regulation through such "discursive technologies" need not lead to the effects of domination that Foucault recognized. (SC)
