Pozvánka

Vážené kolegyně, vážení kolegové,

Oddělení pro studium moderní české filosofie (Filosofický ústav AV ČR) a Katedra sociologie FF UK vás zvou na přednášku Shamuse R. Khana Understanding Sexual Violence, která se uskuteční ve středu 12. prosince od 16:00 v místnosti H206 ve Šporkově paláci, Hybernská 3, Praha 1.

Abtract: Approaches to sexual assault have been dominated by a socio-pathology model, wherein those who assault are "pathological predators." This talk draws upon a large-scale team-based quantitative and qualitative study of sexual violence on at Columbia University and Barnard College, which takes a sociological approach, placing sexual violence in relation to "normal" sex, and looking at the individual, relational, institutional and cultural factors that lead to sexual violence. It argues that the vast majority of assaults are social, not pathological. And presenting a model of power and precarity, it begins a provisional outline of a model of the relationship between inequalities and assault, resting on the classic formulation of gender and power, but also integrating a range of other inequalities that generate precarities and thereby risks for assault. The implication is that reducing inequalities is essential to any strategy to address sexual violence.

New Directions in the Study of Elites

Od 18:00 v AKC (Husova 4a, 110 00 Praha 1)

Shamus R. Khan: New Directions in the Study of Elites

Abstract: In this lecture I outline some of the major challenges to research in this area and propose a series of theoretical and methodological pathways to address them. Theoretically I make four recommendations: (a) greater attentiveness to and specificity about the relationship between elites and power; (b) a clearer articulation of the relationships between elites and the varieties of capitalism; (c) far more attention to diversity within elites and the use of elites to understand forms of domination like white supremacy and masculine domination and (d) expanding beyond the orthodox form of Bourdieusian theoretical frameworks. Methodologically I outline how research using survey instruments, social network analysis (SNA) (and multiple correspondence analysis), interviews, ethnographic observation, experiments, archival research, administrative data and content analysis can each be deployed, built upon or redirected to help bring elites into greater focus.
