Global Health and Nursing PracticeMarginalization Revisited: Critical, Postmodern, and Liberation PerspectivesHall, Joanne M. RN, PhD, FAANAuthor Information Associate Professor; College of Nursing; University of Tennessee-Knoxville; Knoxville, Tennessee I thank all of the women whose stories contributed to our basic theory about marginalization as a nursing concept. I thank my colleagues, Patricia E. Stevens, RN, PhD, FAAN, and Afaf I. Meleis, RN, PhD, FAAN, for their collaboration on the 1994 Advances in Nursing Science article to which this article is a response. We continue our scholarly dialogue about this concept and try to apply it in knowledge development. The opinions reflected here, however, are those of the author. Advances in Nursing Science: December 1999 - Volume 22 - Issue 2 - p 88-102 Buy Abstract Marginalization was advocated by Hall, Stevens, and Meleis in 1994 as a guiding concept for valuing diversity in knowledge development. Properties, risks, and resilience associated with the concept were detailed. This conceptualization of marginalization is reexamined here for its sociopolitical usefulness to nursing, from (1) critical theory, (2) postmodern, and (3) liberation philosophy perspectives. Additional properties are proposed to update the original conceptualization. These include: exteriority, Eurocentrism, constraint, economics, seduction, testimony, and hope. Effects of Eurocentric capitalism on all marginalized people are explored. Nursing implications include the need for interdisciplinary dialogue about the ethics of promoting and exporting Eurocentrism in nursing education and practice, and the need for integrated economic analyses of all aspects of life and health.
