Cooking struggles in Cretan folktales: Undermining patriarchy & forging solidarity among women

Standard

Finally, the full text of the conference paper is available online

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.

Everyday practices in Greece in the shadow of property – Καθημερινές πρακτικές στην Ελλάδα στη σκιά της ιδιοκτησίας

Είναι το 19ο κεφάλαιο στον συλλογικό τόμο Untamed Urbanism [Ατιθάσευτες Αστικές Πρακτικές] υπό την επιμέλεια των Adriana Allen, Andrea Lampis και Mark Swilling, εκδ. Routledge.

Χρησιμοποιώ μετα-αποικιακή θεωρία, φεμινιστική θεωρία και γιουγκική ψυχανάλυση για να εξετάσω αφ’ ενός την παράλογη επιθετικότητα των ιδιοκτησιακών καθεστώτων στα αστικά κέντρα σε βάρος των εναλλακτικών δομών οικονομικής δραστηριότητας και αφ’ ετέρου κατά πόσο οι δομές αυτές μπορεί να δίνουν μια ευκαιρία για συλλογική χειραφέτηση σε πρακτικό και ψυχικό επίπεδο.

This is chapter 19 in: Adriana Allen, Andrea Lampis and Mark Swilling (2015) “Untamed Urbanisms”, Taylor & Francis- Routledge, London & New York, pp. 270-283.

Abstract:

Collective cultivations, kitchen collectives, social kitchens, artistic collectives, self-education projects require, apart from human effort and materials, a space where they can be realised. Whether in open or in built space, those initiatives, formed in most cases through grassroots practices and movements, create a relationship with urban space which is not deployed along the public-private axis, much less through the institutional and social construction of private property over land.

Therefore, the paper explores the social arrangements by which those grassroots collective production and sharing are situated and performed in the city space; whether these arrangements challenge or break through the estalblished private property rights; and how those same initiative re-negotiate or even subvert the order of the city.

The theoretical approaches are emerging from the feminist critique on private property but also from analytical approaches of the Jungian school. The two grassroots case studies refer to urban initiatives which emerged the last four years in Greece while the third one is a case study to show the position and arguments of the other side, i.e. the policy of privatising public space.

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.
