...recent human geography, interpellation is widely used by feminist geographers to describe the processes by which managers and employers construct the ideal worker in terms of gender, race, skill, appearance, deportment, etc. ( McDowell 2009 ). In interactive service work, where employees have direct contact with customers, there can be a process of dual interpellation; workers must conform to the expectations of both managers and customers. Interpellation is a useful way of understanding heterogeneous workplaces. See also Marxism Reference McDowell, L. ...

... Louis Althusser 's term for the process by which persons are “hailed” within an ideologically structured field, and thereby positioned in appropriate social roles. Althusser's classic example is that of being addressed by a policeman—a situation in which recognition on the part of the person hailed positions that person as a subject of legal discourses, penal institutions, and state power more generally. Interpellation, for Althusser, is the work of ideological and repressive state apparatuses . These include schools, the mass media, unions,...

... This is ‘call and response’; and it explains how one class allows the other class to exert influence over them. This concept may be used in mutual interactions, as with managers and workers. Workers end up seeing themselves in the ways that the managers describe them; ‘this naming of others in the workplace is, in turn, internalized by workers themselves, so they come to conform to or recognize themselves in the managerial naming’ ( McDowell et al. (2007) Econ. Geog. 83, 1, 1...

... The non-coercive process in which an individual is called upon by a particular social formation to misrecognize themselves as a subject and thereby forget that they are constituted by society rather than constitutive of society as they henceforth imagine themselves to be. Ideology recruits individuals and transforms them into subjects (which for Althusser implies they are simultaneously the subjects of society, meaning the products of society, and subjected to society, meaning subordinate to society) by persuading them to occupy a subject position...

... Proposed by the French Marxist philosopher Louis Althusser , the term is central to his account of ideology as the imaginary relationship of individuals to their real conditions of existence. It names the non-coercive process whereby a subject is called upon by a particular social formation to misrecognize themselves as a subject and thereby forget that they are constituted by society rather than constitutive of society as they henceforth imagine themselves to be. Ideology recruits individuals and transforms them into subjects (which for...

... ( appellation , hailing ) Althusser’s term to describe a mechanism whereby the human subject is ‘constituted’ (constructed) by pre-given structures (a structuralist stance). By being named or ‘hailed’ as a member of a group, a person is led to see themselves as an ideological subject. For example, when a politician addresses a crowd as ‘citizens’, or a teacher addresses a class as ‘students’, the people in those situations are being asked to adopt a certain subject position or social role that is conducive to the maintenance of the...

...interpellation A concept developed by the French Marxist philosopher and academic Louis Pierre Althusser ( 1918–1990 ), who suggested that individuals are constructed as subjects through ideology as it is expressed in interaction, and that they become subjects through interpellation, through being hailed as a particular person. His work is important for gender researchers because of its emphasis on the social construction of the subject and because of his theoretical elaboration of the notion of ideology. However, some feminists have rejected his work because...
