Abstract

If sex is and has always been pointed out, if it carries a lot of fertile speech, it is also and perhaps paradoxically hidden, denigrated or even hypocritically forgotten. But this is an essential organ for all life. Its necessity but also the secrets that surround it give it a mysterious character filled with strength and fragility, multiple pleasures and pains. Fruit of the conference "Show this sex that I can not see! This volume takes an essentially historical look at sex, enriched by a film analysis. This meeting highlights how the delimitation of what is sexual organ or not varies in time, space and body, physical and psychic. More than the establishment of a geography of the sexual, the important thing is what the organs relate on the relations between, on the one hand, the models of sexuation and functioning of the sexuality and, on the other hand, the regulation social relations.&#xD;

Abstract

Ce volume reflète l’extraordinaire essor pris ces dernières années par l’histoire des femmes en situation coloniale. Onze contributions, concernant des territoires coloniaux divers, portant sur les XIXe et XXe siècles, abordent, à travers des aspects historiques, littéraires, sociologiques ou politiques, des questions fondamentales pour cerner « le sexe » de la colonisation et de la décolonisation. Elles nous montrent combien, dans les deux processus, les rapports de genre, de classe et de race s’imbriquent dans les discours et dans les faits. La richesse des approches et des problématiques démontre, s’il le fallait, la pertinence de l’outil « genre » dans l’analyse des impérialismes.

Abstract

L’image qui s’impose quand on évoque l’exil politique est le plus souvent masculine : ce serait principalement une affaire d’hommes. Tout au plus quelques femmes apparaissent à titre d’exception, mais la grande majorité d’entre elles sont présentées comme des « réfugiées » ou des « suiveuses », c’est-à-dire comme des victimes plutôt que des actrices de leur destin. Les femmes n’ont-elles donc jamais dû fuir à cause de leurs convictions, parce que persécutées ou risquant leur vie et leur liberté ? Cet ouvrage présente onze contributions qui, toutes, soulignent l’urgence d’exhumer l’histoire des exilées politiques et l’intérêt de l’étudier dans une dimension de genre. Il montre combien cette approche permet de revisiter le processus de l’exil politique.

Abstract

« Un homme n’aurait pas idée d’écrire un livre sur la situation singulière qu’occupent dans l’humanité les mâles », affirmait en 1949 la philosophe française Simone de Beauvoir. Les profondes mutations qui ont affecté le genre et la sexualité ces dernières décennies ont pourtant fait mentir l’auteure du Deuxième sexe : le masculin est désormais objet de multiples débats, réflexions et recherches. Rassemblés dans une perspective de décloisonnement disciplinaire, des historiens, sociologues, philosophes, anthropologues et spécialistes de la littérature ou du cinéma mettent ici en évidence le caractère pluriel des expériences et idéologies de la virilité. Ils montrent également que la construction du masculin ne s’opère jamais en vase clos, mais bien en étroite corrélation avec celle du féminin. Ce sont donc au final les deux « sexes » qui sont au cœur de ce volume qui, en dénaturalisant les catégories sociales, éclaire le caractère contingent, quotidiennement ré-inventé de ce qui apparaît évident : être une femme ou un homme.

Abstract

Dans un contexte socio-culturel propice à l’expression de l’ego, aux épanchements personnels et à l’exhibition de l’intériorité, des créatrices explorent le filon intimiste, souvent avec une audace et une crudité que leur envient leurs alter ego masculins. Que ce soit dans la littérature, les arts plastiques ou le cinéma contemporain, les artistes sont en effet de plus en plus nombreuses à décrire l’expérience (fictionnelle ou subjective) de l’intime, puisant volontiers dans les détails de leurs vies (sexuelles) respectives. Au cœur de ces nouvelles formes, l’hybridation des discours – critique, théorique et intime – est de mise, provoquant un réaménagement considérable au sein des genres, et du genre. br>Ce volume s’interroge à la fois sur les pratiques sexuelles que couvre cette idée de l’intime, l’évolution du contenu des œuvres, du XIXe siècle à aujourd’hui, ainsi que sur les différentes modalités discursives qui véhiculent ces visions (des journaux écrits et correspondances, réels ou fictifs, des œuvres d’art, des films documentaires ou de fiction). L’enjeu des textes repris dans ce volume se situe aussi au niveau de la pertinence d’un tel phénomène et de la spécificité d’un discours « féminin » par rapport à ces pratiques créatives.

Abstract

The advancing digitalisation is leading to a fundamental change in the world of work. So far, women have not taken advantage of the associated career opportunities to the same extent as men. A gender-sensitive design of degree programmes can make a significant contribution to changing this situation. This publication examines which measures were taken to this end in the new "Business Administration - Digital Economy" course at Beuth University of Applied Sciences. In addition, relevant experiences and good practices from other universities are presented and the possible gain of knowledge on career goals and career requirements from surveys of students and graduates is discussed.

Abstract

Social democracy has made a political comeback in recent years, especially under the influence of the Third Way. Not everyone is convinced, however, that Third Way social democracy is the best means of reviving the Left's project. This book considers this dissent and offers an alternative approach. Bringing together a range of social and political theories, After the new social democracy engages with some of the most important contemporary debates regarding the present direction and future of the Left. Drawing upon egalitarian, feminist and environmental ideas it proposes that the social-democratic tradition can be renewed but only if the dominance of conservative ideas is challenged more effectively. It explores a number of issues with this aim in mind, including justice, the state, democracy, new technologies, future generations and the advances in genetics. Lively and authoritative, After the new social democracy offers a distinctive contribution to political ideas. It will appeal to all of those interested in politics, philosophy, social policy and social studies.

Abstract

Through a study of the British Empire's largest women's patriotic organisation, formed in 1900, and still in existence, this book examines the relationship between female imperialism and national identity. It throws new light on women's involvement in imperialism; on the history of 'conservative' women's organisations; on women's interventions in debates concerning citizenship and national identity; and on the history of women in white settler societies. After placing the IODE (Imperial Order Daughters of the Empire) in the context of recent scholarly work in Canadian, gender, imperial history and post-colonial theory, the book follows the IODE's history through the twentieth century. Chapters focus upon the IODE's attempts to create a British Canada through its maternal feminist work in education, health, welfare and citizenship. In addition it reflects on the IODE's responses to threats to Anglo-Canadian hegemony posed by immigration, World Wars and Communism, and examines the complex relationship between imperial loyalty and settler nationalism. Tracing the organisation into the postcolonial era, where previous imperial ideas are outmoded, it considers the transformation from patriotism to charity, and the turn to colonisation at home in the Canadian North.

Abstract

Gender at stake critiques historians' assumptions about witch-hunting as well as their explanations for this complex and perplexing phenomenon. The authors insist on the centrality of gender, tradition and ideas about witches in the construction of the witch as a dangerous figure. They challenge the marginalisation of male witches by feminist and other historians. The book shows that large numbers of men were accused of witchcraft in their own right, in some regions, more men were accused than women. The authors analyse ideas about witches and witch prosecution as gendered artefacts of patriarchal societies under which both women and men suffered. They challenge recent arguments and current orthodoxies by applying crucial insights from feminist scholarship on gender to a selection of statistical arguments, social-historical explanations, traditional feminist history and primary sources, including trial records and demonological literature. The authors assessment of current orthodoxies concerning the causes and origins of witch-hunting will be of particular interest to scholars and students in undergraduate and graduate courses in early modern history, religion, culture, gender studies and methodology.
