Seminar: A Cripistemology of Pain: Experiences and Recognition of Endometriosis with Ina Hallström

Ina Hallström is a PhD student in Gender Studies at Stockholm University and lives with chronic pain.

Although almost everyone experiences pain, it is often seen as incidental rather than as a fact of life. Moreover, societal responses to pain differ depending on the sufferer’s identity. What happens when the pain of some bodies is not recognized within society, and what are the emotional and material implications? What kind of knowledge production is made possible when the painful body is treated as the point of departure, rather than as an exception and from an outside perspective? I engage in these questions through Alyson Patsavas concept of a "cripistemology of pain" – a form of knowledge production that situates pain within broader systems of discourse and power. The discussion proceeds from her PhD project "Painful Subjects: Endometriosis, Experience, Recognition", which is based on in-depth interviews with people diagnosed with the chronic illness endometriosis. Endometriosis is a common disease affecting one in ten people menstruating. The most common symptoms are chronic pain and infertility. Even though this condition has severe effects on perceived quality of life, it is difficult to receive help and support, and the road to diagnosis is often long. There are many difficulties that come with living with a painful condition that is not directly visible to others. My study combines feminist phenomenology and recognition philosophy with crip perspectives on normative embodiment and compulsory able-bodiedness. The concept of a "cripistemology of pain" can be understood as the node where these theoretical strands intersect – and become acutely political.

Seminar: Digital Suffering: Images of War & the Politics of Care in the Digital Age
Daniel Møller Ølgaard has been a PhD student with the Department of Political Science since September 2016. He holds an MA in International Conflict Studies from King's College London and an MSc in Global Studies from Roskilde University.

This seminar investigates the phenomena of distant suffering in the digital age. Animated by the challenges confronted by contemporary spectators of the Syrian war, Ølgaard tries to think through the entangled nature of feelings, politics, and technology to perform a critical exploration of the ‘politics of suffering’ as the pain of distant others is increasingly sensed, sighted, and evaluated via digital media. Particular interest is taken here in how the emergence and proliferation of digital media technologies reconfigures the ‘affective terrain’ of world politics, that is, the changing perceptions of victimhood, regimes of compassion and indifference and the changing sense of belonging or alienation at the time of social media, smart phones and other, ever evolving, technological forms of connectivity.

Lecture: China's Belt and Road Initiative: Aspirations, Imaginations, and Developments

Alvin Yang, Ph.D. candidate Political and Social Sciences at Universität Kassel; Roger Greatrex, Professor Emeritus, Centre for East and South-East Asian Studies, Lund University

In 2015 China launched a new development strategy, the Belt and Road Initiative (BRI). It presents a new vision for a broad international cooperation encompassing about 70 countries along two main trading routes: the ancient land-based Silk Road Economic Belt and the 21st Century Maritime Silk Road. The political, economic, and global implications of this initiative have been much discussed in the international media. The two presentations by Ph.D. candidate Alvin Yang and Professor Emeritus Roger Greatrex will provide deeper insights into some of the major issues as well as exemplify with some concrete cases. Two papers will be presented. First, Will the Belt and Road Initiative Reshape the Current Global Order? One Initiative, Thousands of Imaginations presented with Alvin Yang, Ph.D. candidate Political and Social Sciences at Universität Kassel. And then, Entering the Age of China’s New Mode of International Relations with Roger Greatrex, Professor Emeritus, Centre for East and South-East Asian Studies, Lund University

Film screening: After Spring, the Tamaki Family…

Film synopsis: On a warm spring day in 2015, Grandma Tamayo and the Tamaki family, the largest Taiwanese immigrant family on Yaeyama Islands of Okinawa, takes a journey back to the home which they left before World War II: Taiwan. The people who emigrated from Taiwan to Okinawa became political refugees under the 30 year long U.S. occupation. The Tamaki family has experienced this complicated history. By revisiting Taiwan, they little by little steer out of the disorientation of their memory anidentity. This is a heartwarming home movie spanning 80 years about one's family's vicissitudes in East Asian history.    Bio: Huang Yin-­‐Yu now lives in Japan. His first documentary “Wuguwang N. St. to Taipei”(2010) is an anthropological film about Thai labors in Taiwan. “Temperature at Nights (2013) is a private film which portrays the memory in the military service and his childhood, and was selected in the international competition of Visions du Réel, Buenos Aires International Doc FilmFest, and nominated for the best documentary of Taipei Film Festival. He also made a short documentary “YAMAMORI”(2014) for the project “Grand Voyage” produced by Naomi Kawase, for Nara International Film Festival 2014. Now he’s based in Okinawa, producing a series of documentaries about pre-­‐War immigrants in Okinawa region of Japan. His project “Wild Mountains over the Sea” was selected in the “Doc Station” of Berlinale Talents, and received the grand prize of “Pitching du Réel” in Visions du Réel 2015.  See trailer here
