    • Abstract:
      This article examines the configuration of domestic service within local milieus under globalization. Using Taiwan as a case study, the author argues that the state continues to have an impact even in this age of global interdependence. The management of foreign domestics within employers' households is not only important for labor control but also central to the state's administration over alien subjects. The case of Taiwan calls attention to the necessity of bringing the state back into the analysis of gender and carework.
