Activities, Conferences
Ester Massó Guijarro, researcher at FiloLab, gave the conference entitled ‘Bayfal diaspora in Spain: Challenging Murid Senegalese Migration’ as part of the ‘Mystique et ésotérisme dans la diaspora’ round table in the framework of the ‘Journées d’études internationales sur les mystiques islamiques en Afrique’. This event was organised by the GRECS group of the University of Barcelona on 21st and 22nd April 2021. This work reflects on the bayfal movement (bayfalism) within muridism from a transnational perspective, seen as a specifically migratory affiliation with contemporaneity and within the field of African studies.

Conversation between Carlos Fernández Liria and Mario Espinoza Pino on the book ‘Marx, 2857: el problema del método y la dialéctica’

Activities, workshops
From 4th February to 21st April 2021, two sessions of presentation, conversation, and debate on Carlos Fernández Liria’s work ‘Marx, 2857: el problema del método y la dialéctica’ took place. This event was organised by José Luis Moreno Pestaña and Mario Espinoza Pino, members of FiloLab and the Seminario de Filosofía Social ‘Capital (es), Cuerpos’.

“Ethics of Care” seminar

Activities, Conferences, workshops
The 6th April, Esther Massó Guijarro—researcher at FiloLab— presented the “Ethics of Care” seminar together with Rosana Triviño at the Andalusian School of Public Health of Granada. This seminar took place in the framework of the 4th module on ethics, gender and care which is part of the 11th Diploma of Specialisation in Bioethics, organised by the Andalusian School of Public Health. Following the proposals and analyses of Kohlberg and Gilligan, this seminar shows how the ethics of care are a critical and complementary approach to traditional ethics of justice so as to move towards a non-binary and non-exclusive conception of gender, amongst other values. Through a hybrid methodology that combines theory and group practice, students are expected to develop and integrate approaches and guiding principles regarding ethics of care…

Online Discussions: “Detonar la realidad a través del cuerpo del trabajador”

Online Discussions: “Detonar la realidad a través del cuerpo del trabajador”

Activities, Media, Talks
  Reconstructing history allows us to realise that bodies have not always been valued in the same way; a capital that is linked to bodies (sexual capital) exists as a consequence of transformations in the field of health, of relationships between social classes as well as the general conception of the conditions required to be an accomplished person. These changes allow us to identify possibilities for transformation. Because even though everybody should be able to express themselves through their bodies, this is far from reality as there are certain requirements that have been set which verge on the pathological. An empirical study on qualified and working class workers provides us with a contemporary view of how sexual capital is linked to eating disorders. An analysis of existing conflicts allows us…
