World-systems theory anchors creative ways to think about historical capitalism and processes of internationalization and provides a framework for interpreting nation-state formation and intrastate class and gender relations. Less attention, however, has been devoted by world-systems theorists to sustained engagements with contemporary theory and the advancements it promises for theory-building. To encourage this dialogue, I identify as well as deepen areas of engagement between world-systems analysts and those employing contemporary feminist and various post- theories. The primary question animating my discussion is: How do contributions from feminism, poststructuralism, and postcolonial theory offer a refinement of our understanding of contemporary global capitalism?
