Collective viewings of value(s) and the struggle for what is valuable – The Case of Grassroots Initiatives

Standard

Abstract: The article discusses the grassroots approaches to value(s) and valuing(s) as encountered in several schemes which exist in Greece over the last few years and whose members perform transactions without the use of any official currency. The main scope of the article is to explore the theoretical issues that emerge from the grassroots practices and analyse ways by which those practices challenge or even defy the dominant economic structures, perceptions and theories about value. Given that the theoretical issues emerge from field research and findings, empirical data on ethnographic nature are used to contribute to the discussion and place the questions within their historical and practical contexts. The variety of practices itself informs the theoretical debate about the multiple ways people might think of and use ideas about value in their economic activity.

https://www.academia.edu/27163108/Cooking_struggles_in_Cretan_folktales_Undermining_patriarchy_and_forging_solidarity_among_women

Abstract

The paper is part of a larger research project concerning grassroots economics, i.e. theory and practice, which exist among everyday people and communities, in spaces which are more informed by everyday communal life and/or social movements than by established economic thinking. Folktales, therefore, are one among the sources I use for learning and  understanding grassroots economics.
In this paper, I analyse folktales within the framework of capitalist patriarchy having in mind that the folktales draw ideas and resistance stories from social struggles and  arrangements that might be non-capitalist and/or non-patriarchal at the same time. My case studies are various folktales from the island of Crete, Greece, and the main research question is how kitchen work performed by women is valued and perceived through local folktales and how the folk narratives of women’s kitchen tasks raise issues about the possibilities for fighting back patriarchal rules and enhancing solidarity among women.
The next section presents the theoretical framework of analysis and section three explains how folktales function as sources of grassroots economics. The research questions and the method of analysis are presented in section four and section five examines the main themes emerging in Cretan folktales with reference to women’s work and action in the kitchen. In section six I discuss how the themes answer or illustrate better the research questions and the concluding remarks are presented in section seven.

Αυτή είναι η παρουσίαση που χρησιμοποιήθηκε στο Συμπόσιο Ελληνικής Γαστρονομίας (Καράνου, 25-26 Ιουλίου 2015) και η μελέτη θα αναρτηθεί τις επόμενες εβδομάδες.

H μελέτη εξετάζει τα Κρητικά παραμύθια ως πηγές ριζικών οικονομικών, δηλαδή ως πηγές πολιτικο-οικονομικών ιδεών που εμφανίζονται και διαδίδονται μεταξύ των τοπικών κοινοτήτων στην Κρήτη.
