Gender, (In-)Equality and Economic Change

The Impacts of Economic Transformations on Gender Relations among the Dayak Benuaq in East Kalimantan, Indonesia

Support: Fritz Thyssen Foundation (travel grant)

Project management: PD Dr. Michaela Haug

Website: http://ethnologie.phil-fak.uni-koeln.de/content.php?kid=79

Duration
2016 - 2019
Field work from July 2016 until April 2017; Budget: 20.324 €

This research project investigates the gender-specific effects of recent economic and environmental change on Dayak Societies in Indonesian Borneo. Current gender relations of the Dayak Benuaq are systematically explored on three levels: the ideal level, the normative level and the level of everyday social practice. The project further examines how the increasing integration of the Dayak Benuaq into new economic systems shapes processes by which gender identities, gender roles, and gender relations are (re-)negotiated in diverse contexts and situations. Special attention is paid to the diverse ways in which gender is interwoven with other factors such as class, education, ethnic identity and age in the formation of new inequalities.
