Séance avec Guénolé Marchadour (CNAM) du séminaire "Capitalism, Welfare Regime and Intimate Sphere: Theory of Human Reproduction in Mature Societies in Europe and East Asia"(CAPWELCARE).
The presentation focuses on the work-life issues from a case study in contemporary Japan. The development of Brazilian schools in the 2000s relates to new immigration issues in the Japanese society and to changes in the labor market. Most studies address these Brazilian schools through a cultural differences approach. However, few researches have connected their development with the (unequal) division of domestic work within migrant families and with the institutional support for childcare in Japan. The continuing gendered division between the domestic sphere and the labor world in Japan currently resulted in an occupational status division, which separated the conditions of part-timer (mainly women) from those of full-timer. I will present how the Brazilian female migrants, who are recruiting as full-time workers in the industrial factories, mobilize the community networks, including the Brazilian schools, for facing the double burden of paid employment and domestic work.
This lecture is part of the seminar "Capitalism, Welfare Regime and Intimate Sphere: Theory of Human Reproduction in Mature Societies in Europe and East Asia".
