The Philosopher’s Body: Simone de Beauvoir and the Sex of Violence

The Philosopher’s Body: Simone de Beauvoir and the Sex of Violence

Join Gender Studies and French Studies for a presentation with Dr. Sandrine Sanos, associate professor of Modern European History at Texas A&M University Corpus Christi.

We mostly know Beauvoir today as a feminist icon. But the story of her life is the story of her complicated relationship with the world, to the ways she felt she could act in the world, and to the importance of reflecting on and theorizing one’s relation to others and to the world. Her relationship to politics was complicated and, in fact, had been shaped in the crucible of twentieth-century’s most devastating conflicts, from World War Two, to the Franco-Algerian War, and the Vietnam War. In her writings, bodies are not abstract and violence against bodies was, for her, always at the same time a violence against one’s self and identity. This philosophically-inflected politics of “embodied empathy” provides the foundations for her political and ethical call against oppression, persecution, and violence.

Light refreshments served.

The Third Culture Kids Club will be welcoming Emmy and Telly award-winning producer, speaker, author and educator Teja Arboleda for the 6th Annual TCK Symposium. Third Culture Kids are a group of people who grew up outside of their parents’ culture. We will discuss transitional issues when navigating between cultures that both TCKs and non-TCKs face, and what we can do to make cross-cultural transitions easier. Some key topics will include: assimilation, integration, culture shock and reverse culture shock, traditions or language that cannot be translated, and stereotypes. We will also talk about how these experiences impact identity and relationships with others. Both TCKs and non-TCKs are welcome!

The ‘Cyprus Conflict’: The Experiences of a Fulbright-Hayes Participant on an Island Divided
Omeica Hudson, Department of Education Fulbright-Hayes Participant
Presentation Abstract: ”Cyprus is an island off the coast of Turkey that has had multiple civil wars between ethnicities over political power sharing. These wars led to UN peacekeeping troops helping to create a ceasefire in 1974 that is still in effect today. This conflict has been termed the “Cyprus Conflict”.

The wars split Cyprus into two nations based on ethnicity: the southern, Greek (The Republic of Cyprus) and the northern, Turkish,( Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus) There is a “UN Buffer Zone” called the “Green Line” that stretches 112 miles from north to south and is about 4 miles wide at its widest point. Most of the buffer zone is a graveyard and time capsule of lost lives, land, homes, and histories and is now patrolled by UN peacekeeping troops and border patrols. At one point, the “Green Line” runs through the center of the capital city, Nicosia, the only divided capital city in the world. The village of Pyla, located inside the “Green Line”, is the only village in Cyprus where Greeks and Turks communities live and govern together.

Although there is a ceasefire between these two segregated nations, Cyprus has technically been at war for the last 43 years. UN sponsored negotiation talks have been held many times over the last 43 years without success. The last negotiations were in the works this summer. As I lived among those hoping for progress towards reunification through an equitable bi-communal, bi-zonal federation, there was a palpable sense of loss and frustration when the news broke in July that the UN-sponsored talks ended without



any resolution.”

“Collective Amnesia: The Multi-Cultural Contributions of Al-Andalus to Western Civilization”
Dr. Julia Bazi, Lewis & Clark Professor of Music 
Presentation abstract:  For almost 800 years, Al Andalus fostered an enlightened culture in which three great Abrahamic traditions — Judaism, Christianity, and Islam — co-existed, interacted, and flourished. During the time of Al Andalus (711-1492), individuals of different ethnicities and faiths created an advanced and thriving culture which has had a lasting effect on world culture. So much of what we know and employ today dates back to this period. Modern-day science, technology, math, astronomy, medicine, music, agriculture, architecture, art and even clothing and dining etiquette can all find their roots centuries earlier in Islamic Spain. And yet, this is not a history with which many of us are familiar.The capacity of a memory to endure depends on the social power of the group that holds it and records that history. Collective memory implies by extension, the concept of collective forgetting. This phenomena has its own history. This presentation explores how older Iberian memories continue to influence our present and how the period of Al Andalus, often entirely ignored in our Western History books has had, and continues to have far reaching consequences in the present.

“Explaining Women’s Electability: Role Congruity and the Importance of Candidate Type”
Dr. Lindsay Benstead, Portland State University Professor of Political Science and Interim Director of the Middle East Studies Center (MESC)

Presentation abstract: Ensuring female representation has been at the forefront of the global development agenda. Yet, little is known about which traits or social, economic, or political roles make women more electable. When and why do voters cast ballots for women, and how can insights into this help scholars, policymakers, and development specialists have a clearer understanding of the prospects of increasing women’s roles? Gender role congruity theory argues that bias against females for leadership roles stems from a mismatch between stereotyped gender roles and the traits associated with a “good leader.” We extend this theory by arguing that the credentials that candidates emphasize, such as their success as business entrepreneurs or civil society activists, has a significant influence on the extent to which voters prefer male over female voters because candidates are also judged as effective occupants of these roles when considered as future political leaders. Drawing on data from four original survey experiments conducted in Tunisia, Egypt, and Jordan between 2012 and 2014, we show that electability varies according to the skills candidates bring to the job. In the survey experiment, respondents were presented at random with brief descriptions of candidates who were either male or female and engaged in civil society work or business. We find strong and consistent evidence across the four countries that voters prefer business candidates to civil society candidates. Moreover, males in particular prefer male candidates to female candidates. But, the gender gap in electability is larger for business candidates – roles for which women are often stereotyped as unfit – than civil society candidates. When male and female candidates are running on civil society platforms, the gender bias at the polls is narrowed. We argue that this is because many view women as caring and community-oriented, and thus as having the traits that many equate with successful civil society activists.

The ‘Cyprus Conflict’: The Experiences of a Fulbright-Hayes Participant on an Island Divided
Omeica Hudson, Department of Education Fulbright-Hayes Participant
Presentation Abstract: ”Cyprus is an island off the coast of Turkey that has had multiple civil wars between ethnicities over political power sharing. These wars led to UN peacekeeping troops helping to create a ceasefire in 1974 that is still in effect today. This conflict has been termed the “Cyprus Conflict”.

The wars split Cyprus into two nations based on ethnicity: the southern, Greek (The Republic of Cyprus) and the northern, Turkish,( Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus) There is a “UN Buffer Zone” called the “Green Line” that stretches 112 miles from north to south and is about 4 miles wide at its widest point. Most of the buffer zone is a graveyard and time capsule of lost lives, land, homes, and histories and is now patrolled by UN peacekeeping troops and border patrols. At one point, the “Green Line” runs through the center of the capital city, Nicosia, the only divided capital city in the world. The village of Pyla, located inside the “Green Line”, is the only village in Cyprus where Greeks and Turks communities live and govern together.

Although there is a ceasefire between these two segregated nations, Cyprus has technically been at war for the last 43 years. UN sponsored negotiation talks have been held many times over the last 43 years without success. The last negotiations were in the works this summer. As I lived among those hoping for progress towards reunification through an equitable bi-communal, bi-zonal federation, there was a palpable sense of loss and frustration when the news broke in July that the UN-sponsored talks ended without



any resolution.”

“Collective Amnesia: The Multi-Cultural Contributions of Al-Andalus to Western Civilization”
Dr. Julia Bazi, Lewis & Clark Professor of Music 
Presentation abstract:  For almost 800 years, Al Andalus fostered an enlightened culture in which three great Abrahamic traditions — Judaism, Christianity, and Islam — co-existed, interacted, and flourished. During the time of Al Andalus (711-1492), individuals of different ethnicities and faiths created an advanced and thriving culture which has had a lasting effect on world culture. So much of what we know and employ today dates back to this period. Modern-day science, technology, math, astronomy, medicine, music, agriculture, architecture, art and even clothing and dining etiquette can all find their roots centuries earlier in Islamic Spain. And yet, this is not a history with which many of us are familiar.The capacity of a memory to endure depends on the social power of the group that holds it and records that history. Collective memory implies by extension, the concept of collective forgetting. This phenomena has its own history. This presentation explores how older Iberian memories continue to influence our present and how the period of Al Andalus, often entirely ignored in our Western History books has had, and continues to have far reaching consequences in the present.

Gender role congruity theory argues that bias against females for leadership roles stems from a mismatch between stereotyped gender roles and the traits associated with a “good leader.” We extend this theory by arguing that the credentials that candidates emphasize, such as their success as business entrepreneurs or civil society activists, has a significant influence on the extent to which voters prefer male over female voters because candidates are also judged as effective occupants of these roles when considered as future political leaders. Drawing on data from four original survey experiments conducted in Tunisia, Egypt, and Jordan between 2012 and 2014, we show that electability varies according to the skills candidates bring to the job. In the survey experiment, respondents were presented at random with brief descriptions of candidates who were either male or female and engaged in civil society work or business. We find strong and consistent evidence across the four countries that voters prefer business candidates to civil society candidates. Moreover, males in particular prefer male candidates to female candidates. But, the gender gap in electability is larger for business candidates – roles for which women are often stereotyped as unfit – than civil society candidates. When male and female candidates are running on civil society platforms, the gender bias at the polls is narrowed. We argue that this is because many view women as caring and community-oriented, and thus as having the traits that many equate with successful civil society activists.

The ‘Cyprus Conflict’: The Experiences of a Fulbright-Hayes Participant on an Island Divided
Omeica Hudson, Department of Education Fulbright-Hayes Participant
Presentation Abstract: ”Cyprus is an island off the coast of Turkey that has had multiple civil wars between ethnicities over political power sharing. These wars led to UN peacekeeping troops helping to create a ceasefire in 1974 that is still in effect today. This conflict has been termed the “Cyprus Conflict”.

The wars split Cyprus into two nations based on ethnicity: the southern, Greek (The Republic of Cyprus) and the northern, Turkish,( Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus) There is a “UN Buffer Zone” called the “Green Line” that stretches 112 miles from north to south and is about 4 miles wide at its widest point. Most of the buffer zone is a graveyard and time capsule of lost lives, land, homes, and histories and is now patrolled by UN peacekeeping troops and border patrols. At one point, the “Green Line” runs through the center of the capital city, Nicosia, the only divided capital city in the world. The village of Pyla, located inside the “Green Line”, is the only village in Cyprus where Greeks and Turks communities live and govern together.

Although there is a ceasefire between these two segregated nations, Cyprus has technically been at war for the last 43 years. UN sponsored negotiation talks have been held many times over the last 43 years without success. The last negotiations were in the works this summer. As I lived among those hoping for progress towards reunification through an equitable bi-communal, bi-zonal federation, there was a palpable sense of loss and frustration when the news broke in July that the UN-sponsored talks ended without



any resolution.”

“Collective Amnesia: The Multi-Cultural Contributions of Al-Andalus to Western Civilization”
Dr. Julia Bazi, Lewis & Clark Professor of Music 
Presentation abstract:  For almost 800 years, Al Andalus fostered an enlightened culture in which three great Abrahamic traditions — Judaism, Christianity, and Islam — co-existed, interacted, and flourished. During the time of Al Andalus (711-1492), individuals of different ethnicities and faiths created an advanced and thriving culture which has had a lasting effect on world culture. So much of what we know and employ today dates back to this period. Modern-day science, technology, math, astronomy, medicine, music, agriculture, architecture, art and even clothing and dining etiquette can all find their roots centuries earlier in Islamic Spain. And yet, this is not a history with which many of us are familiar.The capacity of a memory to endure depends on the social power of the group that holds it and records that history. Collective memory implies by extension, the concept of collective forgetting. This phenomena has its own history. This presentation explores how older Iberian memories continue to influence our present and how the period of Al Andalus, often entirely ignored in our Western History books has had, and continues to have far reaching consequences in the present.

Moreover, males in particular prefer male candidates to female candidates. But, the gender gap in electability is larger for business candidates – roles for which women are often stereotyped as unfit – than civil society candidates. When male and female candidates are running on civil society platforms, the gender bias at the polls is narrowed. We argue that this is because many view women as caring and community-oriented, and thus as having the traits that many equate with successful civil society activists.
