Second Circular Letter

Second circular letter



In recent years, academic interest has grown in the various manifestations of commitment and transgression that have been developed in contemporary times and that are being raised today in the Western world. From a gender perspective, both options offer new profiles that challenge the boundaries between the public and the private realms and bring the contradictions between the ideals and behaviours that women and men are demanded to meet. The classic debate on the two spheres is open to new interpretations when approached from the interest in commitment and transgression. Consequently, in the spheres of social, intellectual or political commitment, obedience to rules or even puritanism in the private realm enables and legitimises transgression in the public one; other times, a transgressive behaviour or proposals appear in both cases; and lastly, it can also occur that a radical or disruptive appearance hides conventional theoretical and ideological approaches.
