Del 26 al 30 de junio tendrá lugar un curso titulado Baja natalidad, envejecimiento y Estado de Bienestar, dirigido por Pedro Requés – catedrático de geografía humana – en la Universidad Internacional Menéndez Pelayo de Santander.

Uno de los seminarios del curso se centrará en la Transición a la paternidad en España: el nuevo rol de los hombres en la dinámica familiar.

Os dejamos aquí el programa por si os interesa y queréis apuntaros.

Merecerá la pena el curso y, sin duda, Santander ;)

 

The GENDERBALL project is the first comprehensive study of the demographic consequences of a major recent development in Europe: while men have always received more education than women in the past, this gender balance in education has now turned around. For the first time in history, there are more highly educated women than men reaching the reproductive ages and looking for a partner. This will have profound consequences for the demography of reproduction because mating practices have always implied that men are the majority in higher education. This research project will study the consequences of this historically new situation for reproductive behaviour.

GENDERBALL is funded by a Starting Grant from the European Research Council (ERC).

Principal Investigator: Jan Van Bavel

Si os interesa, aquí encontraréis el enlace de acceso al formulario de inscripción, el programa y toda la información detallada de los contenidos de las jornadas. Una de las ponencias correrá a cargo de @RitxarBacete, especialista en género y masculinidades, que hablará de “Con P de Padre: Paternidades positivas, paternidades que transforman.”

Tienen muy buena pinta. No os las perdáis.

El pasado 20 de noviembre, Ana Requena Aguilar @RequenaAguilar, del periódico @eldiario.es, escribía sobre una realidad que se resiste a cambiar en nuestro país: las mujeres, también las jóvenes, siguen cargando en mayor medida con el trabajo doméstico y de cuidados; los hombres asumen más que las generaciones anteriores pero el reparto aún está lejos de ser equitativo.

“Según recoge el informe Spanish Gender Gap, de la Fundación de Estudios de Economía Aplicada (Fedea), las mujeres dedican diariamente 2,5 horas más al día que los hombres a tareas domésticas y de cuidado, 1,4 horas menos al trabajo remunerado y 1 hora menos al ocio y el tiempo libre. La llegada de un hijo, subraya el informe, ahonda ese reparto desigual de tareas. Sin embargo, las encuestas revelan que las generaciones jóvenes se identifican con valores de igualdad en la familia y rechazan el modelo tradicional con una división asimétrica de las tareas. Según el último estudio Familia y Género del CIS, de 2012, el 88,9% de los hombres y el 92,5% de las mujeres prefieren un modelo de familia en el que los dos miembros de la pareja participen de los ingresos y las tareas de cuidado. El día a día, sin embargo, muestra una realidad diferente.”

@MenRolesProject participa en el artículo publicado cuyo título ya invita a una reflexión: El espejismo de la igualdad: hombres que creen que comparten las tareas de la casa.

We have much pleasure in informing you that the book Couples’ Transitions to Parenthood: Analysing Gender and Work in Europe edited by Daniela Grunow and Marie Evertsson has been published.

“It is common for European couples living fairly egalitarian lives to adopt a traditional division of labour at the transition to parenthood. Based on in-depth interviews with 334 parents-to-be in eight European countries, this book explores the implications of family policies and gender culture from the perspective of couples who are expecting their first child. Couples’ Transitions to Parenthood: Analysing Gender and Work in Europe is the first comparative, qualitative study that explicitly locates couples’ parenting ideals and plans in the wider context of national institutions.
This unique analysis of transitions to parenthood in contemporary Europe focuses on Sweden, Germany, the Netherlands, Switzerland, Italy, Spain, the Czech Republic and Poland. It explores how parents’ agency varies along with policy–culture gaps in their countries and provides evidence of their struggle to adapt to, or resist, socially desired paths and patterns of change. In fact, the ways in which institutional structures limit possible choices and beliefs about motherhood and fatherhood are linked in ways that often go unnoticed by social scientists, policymakers and parents themselves.
This cutting-edge book will be of interest to social scientists, political scientists, journalists and policymakers. Parents-to-be will also find value in this analysis of gender in parenthood.”

You can find the online version here

The Spanish TransParent team has contributed with a chapter entitled The transition to parenthood in Spain: daptations to ideals.

We have very much enjoyed working in the book, and would be most grateful if you could distribute to friends and colleagues.

Thank you very much in advance and enjoy it!

Seminar “Fathers’ involvement in family life: changing cross-national differences”

By Oriel Sullivan

Abstract

In this presentation I examine the changing nature of fathers’ contributions to family life, focusing particularly on fathers’ changing contributions to housework and childcare in different welfare state regimes, and on the changing effect of education on fathers’ contributions in low fertility countries. While there is a relatively substantial literature on cross-sectional differences in father’s investment between subgroups of the population, and rather less on overall changes over time in fathers’ contributions, there is still relatively little research that takes as its focus the way that differences between subgroups change over time. The idea is that by observing such changes we can understand more about the underlying processes of change.

Hace unas semanas, la revista PAPEL (@Papel_EM) del diario El Mundo hizo eco de nuestro proyecto en el artículo titulado “Instrucciones para ser un buen padre moderno”.

Desde este blog, queremos agradecer a Berta G. de la Vega (@martinidemar) su interés por nuestro trabajo sobre el nuevo rol de los hombres en la dinámica familiar. Fue un placer compartirlo con ella.
