COMMUNICATION IN CONGRESS: (Communication in conference)
Title: Women’s landscape: contemporary systematization of dispersed variables. (2012)
  • Author(s): Atxu Amann Alcocer.
  • Conference’s title: ”IV National University Congress “Research and Gender”. Research and gender. Inseparable in the present and in the future.”
  • Place:place): Seville, Spain.
  • ISBN: 978-84-95499-87-5.
  • Summary: We live in yesterday’s schools a life of science fiction. Technology has overlapned with scenarios in place for centuries, hiding a reality, which is surpassed by everyday life. The usual, as an extreme of ignorance, takes refuge in the security that guarantees the closeness of things, people and actions, misrepresenting memory. Like Sweet Chacon said, getting used to it is another way to die. Suppression of the usual can be a powerful moment in knowledge. Only creativity coupled with the critical capacity of the vision of strangeness allow us to educate our gaze to discover all the hidden mechanisms intended to transmit those contents whose purpose is to perpetuate a system of values incompatible with the dignity and justice for all the beings we inhabit in this world and in particular for women. In our world, established customs, solid cognitive frameworks and stable values become disadvantages, as Bauman points out, becoming a projected artifact to forget more than a place for learning.This initiative has sought to colonize and make the territory of the usual – where we are all guilty – trying from fragmentary explorations to tie the history of women with the history of ideas, through cartography of the gender representations in the different spheres of everyday life, to try to deconstruct the imaginary, reach the top of the zero degree and be able to define a new landscape of women.
  • Abstract: We live in the schools of yesterday a life of science fiction. The technology has been superimposed on some current scenarios for centuries, hiding a reality, which is surpassed by everyday life. The usual thing, like extreme of the ignorance, takes refuge in the security that guarantees the proximity of the things, the people and the actions, distorting the memory. As Sweet Chacon said, getting used to it is another way of dying. The suppression of the usual can be a powerful moment in knowledge. Only creativity together with the critical capacity of the vision of estrangement allow us to educate our eyes to discover all the hidden mechanisms destined to transmit those contents whose contents whose constituent purpose is to perpetuate a system of values incompatible with dignity and justice for all the beings we inhabit. this world and in particular, for women. In our world, established customs, solid cognitive frameworks and stable values become disadvantages, as Bauman points out, becoming an artifact designed to forget more than a place for learning.The present initiative has tried to colonize and make visible the territory of the usual – where we are all guilty – trying from fragmentary explorations to knot the history of women with the history of ideas, through cartographies of gender representations in the different spheres of everyday life , to try to deconstruct the imaginary, reach the top of the zero degree and be able to define a new landscape of women.
