演講說明:
Mobilizing Morality: Migrant Domestic Workers in Dubai
Using 85 in-depth interviews with Filipino domestic workers, this talk describes their labor conditions in Dubai. While the talk calls attention to the indenture and absence of labor protection for domestic workers, it establishes and describes their labor conditions as falling under three prevailing cultural patterns: a) dehumanization; b) infantilization; c) recognition. This diversity questions the common view of domestic workers in Dubai as nothing-but abuse victims, an argument made by scholars who reduce our reading of the kafala (sponsorship) system as a form of "structural violence." Countering the reduction of our understanding of domestic work to the structures that shape them, the talk argues that morals mediate market activities and result in a diversity of labor standards across households.
講者簡介
Dr. Rhacel Parrenas為美國南加大社會系教授,她在菲律賓家務勞工及留守家庭的經典研究中,提出「全球照顧鏈」(global care chain)、「跨國母職」等概念,成為遷移與性別學界近年來的重要研究議程。其後她在東京女侍酒吧進行參與觀察,探討菲律賓性工作者的情感政治,對反人口販運提出尖銳批判。本次來台訪問,將根據她在杜拜及新加坡進行的家務移工比較研究,在台灣大學及中山大學社會系進行兩場演講。
