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.
