21H.927J The Economic History of Work and Family (MIT) 21H.927J The Economic History of Work and Family (MIT)

Description

This course will explore the relation of women and men in both pre-industrial and modern societies to the changing map of public and private (household) work spaces, examining how that map affected their opportunities for both productive activity and the consumption of goods and leisure. The reproductive strategies of women, either in conjunction with or in opposition to their families, will be the third major theme of the course. We will consider how a place and an ideal of the "domestic" arose in the early modern west, to what extent it was effective in limiting the economic position of women, and how it has been challenged, and with what success, in the post-industrial period. Finally, we will consider some of the policy implications for contemporary societies as they respond This course will explore the relation of women and men in both pre-industrial and modern societies to the changing map of public and private (household) work spaces, examining how that map affected their opportunities for both productive activity and the consumption of goods and leisure.

THEMIS: Strong ties, weak ties and protection for domestic workers: Ethiopian domestic worker migration to the Middle East

Description

Katie Kuschminder presents her paper 'Strong ties, weak ties and protection for domestic workers: Ethiopian domestic worker migration to the Middle East' in Parallel session IV(E) of the conference Examining Migration Dynamics: Networks and Beyond Few comparisons have been made that examine the difference in migration outcomes for migrants that migrate via a strong versus a weak tie. This paper will contribute to this research area through an examination of Ethiopian female migration to the Middle East by using a network lens to compare migration via weak or strong ties. Domestic workers provide an interesting case for this analysis as they are vulnerable in their migration, and network supports can provide critical resources for the safety and security of the migrant and ensure an econo

Furnishings and Domestic Culture in early Modern England

Description

A seminar presentation on doctoral research, employing probate inventories for the Oxfordshire market town of Thame in the 17th century. A presentation of doctoral research to the Archaeology and Local History seminar series at Kellogg College in November 2011, outlining theoretical and methodological approaches to the interpretation of probate inventories and other contemporary evidence in order to describe the experience of essentially non-elite daily life in the early modern period, and the changes in domestic culture which indicate wider shifts in modes of consumption and social relationships. The research also aimed to develop a better understanding of the operation of domestic culture; an interrelationship of material, social and conceptual elements.

SP.601J Feminist Theory (MIT) SP.601J Feminist Theory (MIT)

Description

This course focuses on a range of theories of gender in modern life. In recent years, feminist scholars in a range of disciplines have challenged previously accepted notions of political theory such as the distinctions between public and private, the definitions of politics itself, the nature of citizenship, and the roles of women in civil society. In this course, we will examine different aspects of women's lives through the life cycle as seen from the vantage point of feminist theory. In addition, we will consider different ways of looking at power and political culture in modern societies, issues of race and class, poverty and welfare, and sexuality and morality. Acknowledgements The instructor would like to thank Lara Yeo for capturing notes and discussion questions in class. This course focuses on a range of theories of gender in modern life.

21L.715 Media in Cultural Context (MIT) 21L.715 Media in Cultural Context (MIT)

Description

This course explores the international trade in television text, considering the ways in which 'foreign' programs find places within 'domestic' schedules. Looking at the life television texts maintain outside of their home market, this course examines questions of globalization and national cultures of production and reception. Students will be introduced to a range of positions about the nature of international textual trade, including economic arguments about the structuring of international markets and ethnographic studies about the role imported content plays in the formation of hybrid national identities. Students will be encouraged to consider the role American content is made to play in non-American markets.
