                                      as relational irresponsibilities"                                               

 

                                            

 

By Stéphanie Mayer, postdoctoral researcher at the School of Political Studies at the University of Ottawa. Guest researcher at the Interdisciplinary Centre for Research on Citizenship and Minorities at the University of Ottawa, and lecturer in political science and feminist studies.

 

Summary:

Vulnerability experiences are "a common property, universally shared and coextensive with human life" (Garrau, 2018: 17). Thus, it is possible to glimpse the arrangements established in intimate relationships as a daily manifestation of vulnerability. Moreover, it would be possible to agree that these same relations represent sensitive cases to inject politics, making visible the injustices that persist. Yet, injustices of all kinds remain in heterosexual intimate arrangements (e.g., differentiated access to scarce resources, limited choices, constraints to personal autonomy, daily responsibilities inequitably distributed), and they are related to patriarchy.

 

This event will be in French.
