Social Inclusion, peer-reviewed journal indexed in the Social Sciences Citation Index (Web of Science) and Scopus, welcomes new and exciting research papers for its upcoming issue “Artificial Intelligence and Ethnic, Religious and Gender-Based Discrimination,” edited by Derya Ozkul (University of Oxford, UK).


To what extent the use of new technologies result in discrimination based on gender, ethnic or religious backgrounds? What are the newly emerging governance mechanisms to mitigate such forms of discrimination? How is accountability ensured in the design and implementation stages? What is the role of civil society and courts in challenging the ‘machine bias’? This thematic issue invites articles with a critical lens and empirically novel findings across various spheres, including but not limited to courts, public security and border management, on the question of artificial intelligence-based technologies and inclusion.

Authors interested in submitting a paper for this issue are encouraged to read the full call for papers here

Abstracts welcome by 15 March 2021.



			

Appel à contributions pour un numéro de la revue Cahiers du genre: Résistances, actions collectives et pouvoir(s) dans les relations de care. Propositions attendues pour le 1er novembre 2020

Coordination : Aurélie Damamme (CRESPPA-GTM, Université Paris 8), Caroline Ibos (LEGS, Université Rennes 2) et Efthymia Makridou (Laboratory of Primary Health Care, General Practice and Health Services Research – Medical School, Aristotle University of Thessaloniki)             

Déjà avant la crise sanitaire, mais de manière bien plus perceptible depuis que la covid-19 a révélé la vulnérabilité comme condition partagée, le care est au centre de discours, d’attitudes et de politiques paradoxales : le soin d’un monde commun est à la fois reconnu comme essentiel et sous-estimé. D’un côté, l’éthique du soin, l’attention à autrui et le maintien des relations et des attachements auront été pendant cette séquence valorisés comme l’une des dimensions de la citoyenneté. D’un autre côté, les travailleurs et les travailleuses du care, ce nouveau prolétariat de service dont les corps ont été prioritairement exposés, se sont vu dans l’immédiat « monde d’après » exclu·e·s des rétributions matérielles et symboliques. Pendant la pandémie, les personnes qui ont le plus pourvu au soin d’autrui, qui y ont été contraintes ou assignées et qui ont pris cette mission d’intérêt général au sérieux, sont aussi celles qui souvent ont été les moins protégées et qui appartiennent aux groupes sociaux les plus exposés et les plus stigmatisés.

Cette marginalisation du care inscrite dans des rapports sociaux enchevêtrés, dans les mailles du genre, de la race et de la classe, a déjà fait l’objet de travaux féministes issus de disciplines variées (philosophie, sociologie, psychologie, histoire, économie). Leurs critiques de la division sexuelle, raciale et sociale du travail ainsi que des dichotomies dualistes entre public et privé, rationnel et émotionnel, travail productif et domestique ont contribué non seulement à rendre visibles les mécanismes de la dévalorisation morale et sociale du care mais aussi à démontrer la centralité de celui-ci dans les débats sur l’émancipation et la démocratie (Tronto, 2013).

Webinar – Thursday 24 September 2020 14.00-16.00 (BST)

This event will discuss the Special Section of Social Politics on ‘Varieties of Gender Regimes’ published in August 2020.

What are the varieties of gender regime? This event focuses on Walby’s varieties of gender regimes and pathways to alternative forms.  Both the domestic and public regimes will be addressed and, within the public, both neoliberal and social democratic varieties. Is this model sufficient to encompass the turn to less progressive forms and multiple global regions or are further varieties needed? At stake here is the distinction between modern and premodern, public and domestic, the meaning of conservative, the concept of the family, and the theorisation of violence. 

Speakers and Discussants

All the papers will be introduced by their authors in the order set out below. This will be followed by two discussants and the meeting will then be opened to question and answer:
