Seminar The “making” of bodies and producing gender inequalities

Women’s bodies is at the heart of the changes in the Mediterranean societies. This is a major challenge from the democracy’s point of view as the recent debates on sexual harassment, freedom of dress, women's access to public space, mobility, and abortion have demonstrated.

In order to analyse the mechanisms of producing gender inequalities, the workshop "The bodies and producing gender inequalities" will gather academics, young researchers and civil society actors on 12 and 13 January 2017 at the Faculty of Economic, Legal and Social Sciences of Tangier.

The seminar is organized by the Euro-Mediterranean University and Scientific Network on Gender and Women (RUSEMEG) within the framework of the Axis 1 "Strengthening the capacities of the gender equality actors" of the project “Women for the future in the Mediterranean”, funded by the French Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Development (MAEDI). It is in synergy with the mission of the Foundation and with the project "Developing Women’s Empowerment" labelled by the Union for the Mediterranean.

The body seen and experienced as a private entity, undergoes all the historical-cultural relations of a society, and it maintains relations between domination and submission with the power in place. Thus, this body can be deciphered as a text on which are engraved the relations of the powers of a given era and a given culture.

The seminar will address many questions related to the body’s place in gender social relations, female emancipation and the "nationalization of women’s body"; such as:

- What are the types of regularization of bodies in society?

- What kind of domination and resistance have been developed by women and individuals / minor groups from their bodies?

- What links exist between the body and the power(s) in place? How does the body relate to citizenship?

- What is the relationship between bodies and mobility / migrations in the globalized world?

More information about the seminar will be available soon.
