This article departs from the notion of governmentalities to analyse the linkage between gender and globalization. It focuses in particular on the way this linkage is informed by specific mindsets that govern peoples conduct as part of the process of self-government. By critically exploring how gender constructions are represented in literature within the field of gender and development, we propose a distinct approach. It entails a multidimensional analytical methodology to study the global/local nexus as a disciplining process, and which deconstructs local/global, west/rest, and modern/traditional dichotomies. This approach is applied to the narrated experiences of a 20-year-old Dakarois boy, in order to illustrate the intersectionality of masculinity and sexuality in, local as well as global, contradicting discourses and policy approaches on 'African sexuality' and the HIV/AIDS crises.
