民主理論與性別化的實踐

「民主理論與性別化的實踐」是一門今年(2016)我的指導教授在五月底預計開設的兩日密集課程,修完之後,我離畢業又更進一步!所以我已經報名參加,而且會在裡面把論文的一部份與訪問學者討論。

修這種課程,對我而言,最花心思的就是要一直思考到底這樣的概念在台灣是如何實踐的。這樣的概念在多大的程度上可以穿越界線?它的解釋力是不是還在?

第一位訪問教授是Yvonne Galligan主要的研究聚焦在愛爾蘭、北愛爾蘭以及英國,議題是性別與民主之間的關係,主要是兩個方面的研究:第一、發展十五個政治決策場域內性別化的指標,目前最主要測試的地點是英國;第二、政治代表性,女性在政治場域中代表性偏低的原因與後果。第二位訪問教授是丹麥來的 Birte Siim,她在人權、照顧政治、民主與多元、公民權、性別與權力、多元文化主義與交織性(intersectionality)都有深厚的底蘊。第三位是芬蘭教授 Johanna Kantola,她主要研究的場域是性別、權力、政黨、交織性、性別平等政策、國家女性主義、女性主義理論與代表性。

指導教授說討論的形式是寫一篇25頁以內的小論文,在開始之前可以給大家看、討論。由於現在只剩下一週的時間,我打算就我之前ECPR(歐洲政治研究學會)的 joint session 討論的那篇做修改。其中,尤其以多元文化主義和原住民族探討為經,奠基在個人的社會權以及奠基在集體的文化權為緯,來做討論。
