IP-seminariet med Catriona Strandfield

Seminarium

På seminariet i internationell politik (IP) presenterar Catriona Strandfield, Visiting Research Fellow at the University of Notre Dame: "Gendering the Practice Turn in Diplomacy".

I samarbete med GenDip.
Ordförande: Adrian Hyde-Price.

Abstract:
Feminist scholars across disciplines wonder why diplomacy is a male-dominated field, how it got that way, and how it is changing. However, there is a striking lack of curiosity about this in the practice turn in diplomatic studies. Recent agenda-setting pieces on diplomatic practice say nothing about gender, or even simply the role of women. I argue that gender is central to understanding change and continuity in diplomatic practices. Applying feminist practice theory to diplomacy can help us understand how the constitutive practices of diplomacy have changed over time in response to societal shifts in gender relations. In turn, the stability of gendered practices in diplomacy can be explained in part by analyzing how diplomatic practices reproduce patriarchal social structures. However, the partial interdisciplinarity of the practice turn in diplomatic studies has erased feminist practice theory that would help us understand these phenomena, thereby reinscribing the gendered disciplinary boundaries of IR. This project shows the utility of feminist practice theory - including the work of Pierre Bourdieu - for diplomatic studies. I propose an interdisciplinary research agenda on gender and diplomatic practices, focused on a cluster of issues: the problem of continuity and change, the relationship between rationality and the logic of practice, the relationship between social and technical practices, and methodology.
