- Le genre ignoré de la santé au travail
4.12 >>19:00 - 1 x 1.30'-
Laurent Vogel,Chercheur au Bureau Technique Syndical
La plupart des enquêtes indiquent que les femmes tendent à être sur-exposées à des phénomènes qui ne peuvent pas être traitées comme des dysfonctionnements de l'organisation productive. Ils sont, au contraire, directement liées à l'intensité du travail et à son organisation hiérarchique. Par ailleurs, la prise en compte de la dimension de genre implique aussi qu'il soit tenu compte du rapport entre le travail rémunéré et le travail non rémunéré. Enfin, le rapport étroit entre les conditions de travail et les rôles stéréotypés débouche sur une analyse critique de la construction du masculin (ou de la virilité) et du féminin.
- Hostages to Hospitality: The Case of Undercurrents
5/12/02- 6:30pm -1 x 60-
Even today, after so many decades of discussing it, those, who see ourselves as involved in 'practice' of art and politics, still negotiating value we are ready to give to 'theory', not to say 'philosophy'. Reverse is as well happening: those who think we are in 'high' theory, do not see our own exploitation of others' corporeal politics and radical philosophy. Love for each other's thought, this carnal passion for the complex and for wonder, has to be distinguished from academic conventions of theory, abstract conceptions of the other, and from jargon of smartness. We have to be able to face each other, even though why 'have'? We ARE facing each other, every day, whether we like it or not.
