Abstract

Which power logics work in the interpretation of prostitution as a problem of individual moral leadership on the one hand and as a political problem for society as a whole on the other? The author combines two key concepts of current political and feminist theory - intersectionality and governmentality - with the historical analysis of the problematization of prostitution and its modes of government at the beginning of the 20th century. It empirically shows that different social groups were each specifically morally governed and argues for a political and process-oriented understanding of intersectionality, so that differentiated mechanisms of the exercise of power can be grasped.

Abstract

On dit de la prostitution qu'elle est le « plus vieux métier du monde ». De fait, les prostituées définissent leur situation en termes de profession ; elles tentent, pour échapper au discrédit et à la stigmatisation, de normaliser leur activité et d'imposer l'idée qu'il s'agit d'un métier comme un autre. À partir d'entretiens et d'observations menées sur les trottoirs de Lille, Stéphanie Pryen tente de comprendre le jeu complexe du stigmate et du métier.

Abstract

"One summer day in Stockholm in 1747, the carpenter's daughter Lena Cajsa Bohman faces trial for disobedience to her father. Soon, she admits to more serious crimes. A tangle of trafficking of young women is revealed. It develops into a story of power and greed, of secret networks and trade with young women. The protocols reflects women's circumstances in a time when all extra-marital sexuality was forbidden and the word prostitution was not used. In 18th century Stockholm, no distinction was made between prostitution and extramarital sexuality. All sexual intercourse outside of marriage was illegal for both women and men. Through the combination of a variety of material sources, from trial protocols to memoirs and hateful whore poems, we get a versatile picture of the commercial sexuality. The testimony of mamsell Bohman tells about how the trade was organized, who the profiteers, the women and the buying men were, where the trade took place and how women who provided sex för money were looked upon. The overall aim is to investigate how the whore stigma remains over centuries. The stigma is extremely adaptable and constantly accommodates to new cultural and social contexts, laws, values and established truths. It is intertwined with dominant notions of good and evil, of honor and contempt. During the 18th century, the whore stigma was not yet linked to payment for sex. It could affect all women, but was crossed by other hierarchical social orders. Despite a rigid legal stance and a strong social control, the boundaries were more permeable than they would later become. There was a striking discrepancy between law, jurisprudence and the verdict of the mob in 18th century Stockholm - a city where the bourgeois daughter Lena Cajsa was able to admit to relations with the notorious Lovisa von Plat and a number of illegitimate sexual relations, but escape punishment and marry into nobility."

Abstract

Cet ouvrage est une introduction à la vie et à l’œuvre de l’Anglaise Josephine Butler (1828-1906), qui précipita une révolution du regard porté sur la prostitution à l’époque victorienne. Cette féministe largement méconnue fut la fondatrice en 1869 de la Ladies National Association, dont le but était d’obtenir l’abrogation des « lois sur les maladies contagieuses », dispositif qui faisait porter l’entière responsabilité de la propagation de la syphilis dans les armées de l’Empire britannique sur les prostituées. Lorsque les lois furent finalement abrogées en 1886, c’est tout le rapport au corps de la femme qui avait été redéfini. Ce livre met à la disposition du lecteur des traductions des textes majeurs de cette grande féministe, dont la pensée se déploie à la croisée de la sociologie, de l’économie, de la médecine et de la théologie. Ces textes ne furent jamais réunis en un ouvrage car ce sont pour beaucoup des transcriptions de conférences données lors de tournées de mobilisation de l’opinion publique dans les villes anglaises. Les traductions proposées ici sont précédées d’un essai critique, où les liens de Josephine Butler avec la littérature populaire sont également analysés : le mélodrame lui offrit l’occasion de redéfinir les responsabilités de chacun ; sa passion pour les enquêtes et le journalisme d’investigation jeta les fondements d’une forme nouvelle, le detective novel.

Abstract

À la fin du XIXe siècle, Bruxelles est secouée par un scandale révélant la présence de mineures anglaises dans les maisons closes de la capitale. En cascade, les répercussions de l’« affaire de la traite des blanches » sont immédiates (campagnes médiatiques, enquêtes, séries de procès). À bien des égards, l’histoire des « petites anglaises » fait aussi l’effet d’un véritable détonateur : elle déliera les imaginaires et déchaînera les passions sur la fameuse question de la « traite des blanche...

Abstract

Small Canadian cities confront serious social issues as a result of the neoliberal economic restructuring practiced by both federal and provincial governments since the 1980s. Drastic spending reductions and ongoing restraint in social assistance, income supports, and the provision of affordable housing, combined with the offloading of social responsibilities onto municipalities, has contributed to the generalization of social issues once chiefly associated with Canada’s largest urban centres. As the investigations in this volume illustrate, while some communities responded to these issues with inclusionary and progressive actions others were more exclusionary and reactive—revealing forms of discrimination, exclusion, and “othering” in the implementation of practices and policies. Importantly, however their investigations reveal a broad range of responses to the social issues they face. No matter the process and results of the proposed solutions, what the contributors uncovered were distinctive attributes of the small city as it struggles to confront increasingly complex social issues. If local governments accept a social agenda as part of its responsibilities, the contributors to Small Cities, Big Issues believe that small cities can succeed in reconceiving community based on the ideals of acceptance, accommodation, and inclusion.
