WOmen at work!: report on a photograph exhibition

COMPTE-RENDU D’EXPOSITION / EXHIBITION REPORT

WOmen at work!

Travail visible et invisible en Ethiopie,

au prisme du genre

by Constance Perrin-Jolly (CFEE)

[in French]

Dans le cadre d’un projet de recherche sociologique en Éthiopie sur l’engagement moral des entrepreneurs (voir notre billet précédent : cfee.hypotheses.org/2155), j’ai réalisé des clichés dans les entreprises étudiées mais aussi dans les rues des villes où j’ai effectué mon enquête. S’inscrivant dans la perspective de la photographie sociale, ce projet utilise la photographie comme révélateur de la reconnaissance sociale du travail en Éthiopie. Il se fonde sur des prises de vue d’individus au travail réalisées entre 2011 et 2017, à Mekele, Hawassa, en pays Afar et à Addis Abeba et ses alentours. Jouant sur la notion de frontières, entre le travail et le hors travail, le dedans et le dehors, la photographie permet de rendre visible le travail. Elle montre les divisions, les formes de coopérations et la manière dont la professionnalité se donne à voir dans un pays en transformation.

Ces clichés ont donné lieu à une exposition à l’Alliance Ethio-Française d’Addis Abeba dans la cadre de la nuit des idées (du 28 janvier au 17 février 2018). Une vidéo de présentation de l’exposition est visible à l’adresse suivante : goo.gl/v4LY2r.

TERRAIN/FIELDWORK: Gender and Development through Local Epistemologies

TERRAIN/FIELDWORK

Gender and Development through Local Epistemologies:

Exploring the Religio-Cultural Underpinnings of Spousal Abuse Attitudes among Orthodox Täwahәdo Christians in Northern Ethiopia and Implications for Changing Attitudes and Norms within Local Worldviews

by Romina Istratii

 

Romina Istratii, a current PhD research student at the School of Oriental and African Studies (SOAS), University of London, presents her recently completed fieldwork among the Orthodox Täwahәdo community of Aksum (Northern Tigray) that was supported by a grant from the CFEE in 2017 and by a SYLFF Research Abroad grant by the Tokyo Foundation, Japan.

This fieldwork focused on exploring local men’s, women’s and clergy’s perceptions and understandings of spousal abuse in juxtaposition to: a) a theology-informed analysis of Church teachings concerning the metaphysics of gender relations, marriage and spousal abuse, and b) an analysis of culture-specific gender ideals and norms. This research has been motivated by the aim to identify local mechanisms and resources for changing attitudes that sustain spousal abuse and, especially, the relevance and feasibility of theology-informed and clergy-centred solutions. Ms Istratii presents here an overview of the project and fieldwork, contextualising it in the relevant literatures and the rationale for its epistemological and methodological innovations. While early to reach any conclusions, some research findings are delineated in ways that suggest intricate, multifarious realities on the ground and the need for multidimensional approaches to normative change.
