In this paper, we explore the theoretical and empirical links
between gender and resilience within the context of crisis
management by developing a theoretically oriented analysis of the iconic case of the 33 Chilean miners rescue.
Analytic focus is placed on the capacity of resilience?
promoting actors to embody and transform the discursive
and practical dimensions of gendered regimes that predominate at an organizational level. As a result, we can
distinguish four distinct modalities—normative redefinition,
emotional reaccommodation, resistance, and affective
affirmation—through which the gendered dimension of
resilience becomes undone and redone, based on the action
of alternative rationalities and affects. Overall, our findings
indicate that resilience cannot be made possible without
effectively disputing the norms that dispose how bodies, in
all their diversity, are able to be recognized and socially
experienced to face and manage crises effectively.
