En 2020, le Programme de recherche et d'enseignement des savoirs sur le genre de Sciences Po célèbre ses 10 ans autour d'un cycle de conférences exceptionnel. L'inscription est obligatoire pour chacune des conférences.

27 janvier 2020 · Who cares for the children? Gender and Transnational Families.

Talk by Rhacel Salazar Parreñas, Professor of Sociology and Gender Studies at University of Southern California.

Rhacel Parreñas will address the question of how gender constitutes and is constituted in transnational households. It draws from a two year ethnographic study on children raised from a distance in the Philippines by migrant parents across the diaspora. While the talk empirically establishes the continued relegation of housework and childcare to women, including in the household of migrant mothers, it also engages the implications of such a finding to feminist theory. It explains the stalled gender revolution in the formation of transnational households with migrant mothers and establishes the significance of examining gender from a relational and not solely an identity perspective.

Discussion: Hélène Le Bail and Hélène Thiollet, researchers CNRS at Sciences Po's Center for International Studies (CERI).

26 février 2020 · Halving it all: How couples around the world create equality at home.

Talk by Francine Deutsch, Professor Emeritus of Psychology and Education at Mount Holyoke College.

In her research, social psychologist Francine Deutsch studies the stories of couples around the world whose everyday decisions about sharing the housework and childcare - from who cooks the food, washes the dishes, and helps with homework, to who cuts back on paid work - all add up to a gender revolution. From North and South America to Europe, Asia, and Australia, these couples tell a story of similarity despite vast cultural differences. By rejecting the prescription that men's identities are determined by paid work and women's by motherhood, the couples show that men can put family first and are as capable of nurturing as women, and that women can pursue careers as seriously as their husbands do - bringing profound rewards for men, women, marriage, and children. Working couples with children will discover that equality is possible and exists right now.

Discussion: Marta Dominguez Folgueras, Associate Professor in Sociology at OSC-Sciences Po

La conférence débutera à 17h. Inscription obligatoire.

9 mars 2020 · The role of the right to equality in the context of economic inequalities.

Talk by Sandra Fredman, Rhodes Professor of the Laws of the British Commonwealth and the USA at Oxford University.

In many jurisdictions, a sharp divide is drawn between economic inequality and ‘status-based’ inequalities, or inequalities due to gender or race. Economic inequalities are generally regarded as a matter of social policy, to be dealt with through the political system. Status-based inequalities, by contrast, have been constructed in terms of legal rights, such as the constitutional right to equality or anti-discrimination laws, enforced through courts. These boundaries have always disguised the extent of interaction between the two spheres. But three recent developments have put these demarcations under particular strain.

Sandra Fredman argues that it is no longer tenable to keep the two spheres separate. Policies aimed at addressing economic inequalities without considering the implications for status-based inequality can reinforce the latter. By contrast, anti-discrimination laws aimed at status inequalities can be ineffective if not allied with policies aimed at economic inequality.

Discussion: Marie Mercat-Bruns, Affiliated Professor at Sciences Po Law School.

25 mars 2020 · The rise and decline of patriarchal systems.

Talk by Nancy Folbre, Director of the Program on Gender and Care Work at the Political Economy Research Institute of University of Massachusetts Amherst.

Why is gender inequality so pervasive? In her latest work, the MacArthur Award-winning economist Nancy Folbre, builds on a critique and reformulation of Marxian political economy to answer this defining question of feminist political economy. Drawing on a large body of scientific research, including neoclassical economics, sociology, psychology, and evolutionary biology she examines the contradictory effects of capitalist development, explains why care work is generally unrewarded in a market economy and explores intersecting inequalities based on class, gender, age, race/ethnicity, and citizenship, and their implications for political coalitions.

Discussion: Hélène Périvier, senior economist OFCE-Sciences Po, Director of Sciences Po's Gender Studies Programme.

La conférence débutera à 17h. Les inscriptions ne sont pas encore ouvertes.

15 avril 2020 · Where the wild things are: Destitution, Dereliction and Dispossession.

Talk by Jack Halberstam, Professor of English and Gender Studies at Columbia University.

For so long we have proposed considering the politics of this or the politics of that – the politics of transgender, the politics of sex, the politics of performance, the politics of resistance – what if politics itself, as a concept and a framework is not the solution but the problem. In other words, what if this need to legitimate everything via the political as we currently understand politics (activities associated with governance) is part of the problem in that it leads to certain kinds of projects and it disallows others – the propulsive projects that engage making, doing, being, building, becoming, knowing, declaring, proposing, dealing, moving and so on.

Discussion: Elissa Mailänder, Associate Professor in History at the Center for History at Sciences Po, with Sciences Po Undergraduate students: Hicham Touili-Idrissi, Carla Van Langen and Lucas Vaz Dos Anjos.

La conférence débutera à 17h. Les inscriptions ne sont pas encore ouvertes.

12 mai 2020 · Féminisme pour les 99%.

Talk by Nancy Fraser, Henry A. and Louise Loeb Professor of Political and Social Science and professor of philosophy at The New School in New York City. [Event held in French]

La nouvelle vague d'activisme féministe renoue avec l'exigence de l'impossible, demandant à la fois le pain et les roses : le pain que des décennies de néolibéralisme ont retiré de nos tables, mais également la beauté qui nourrit nos esprits par l'exaltation de la révolte."  - Féminisme pour les 99%, par C. Arruzza, T. Bhattacharya et N. Fraser (La Découverte, 2019)

Quel féminisme pour le XXIème siècle ? Nancy Fraser défend un féminisme pour les 99%. Un mouvement qui articulerait féminisme, lutte des classes et lutte contre le racisme, qui mettrait en avant les préoccupations de toutes les femmes, quelle que soit leur situation.
Elle dialoguera avec Réjane Sénac, directrice de recherche CNRS au Centre de recherches politiques de Sciences Po (CEVIPOF), autrice en particulier de L'égalité sans condition (Rue de l'échiquier, 2019).

Les inscriptions ne sont pas encore ouvertes.

19 mai 2020 · Penser le féminisme.

Philosophe de la pensée féministe, Geneviève Fraisse s’intéresse à la provenance de l’égalité des sexes : quel moment de l’histoire la rend possible ou impossible ? Colporteuse d’idées, elle veut élaborer les problèmes et découvrir les concepts, construire un champ d’intelligibilité, trouver des repères.

La conférence sera introduite par Hélène Périvier et Françoise Milewski, fondatrices du Programme de recherche et d'enseignement des savoirs sur le genre de Sciences Po.

Les inscriptions ne sont pas encore ouvertes.
