  • La necesaria construcción de una democracia paritaria para el Derecho Privado: la igualdad de género en los consejos de administración de las sociedades cotizadas.

    Martín Guardado, Sergio (Instituto Universitario de Estudios de Género de la Universidad Carlos III de Madrid, 2020-06-23)
    El trabajo que se presenta trata de buscar argumentos en favor de extender la democracia paritaria, concepto surgido del Derecho Público, al ámbito social y económico. Sólo la equiparación igualitaria entre mujeres y hombres puede superar la vulneración de derechos humanos a que se está sometiendo a la mitad mayoritaria de la población y, lograr así, el aprovechamiento máximo de los conocimientos y aptitudes de la sociedad. Así pues, la idea es superar la infrarrepresentación femenina en los consejos de administración de las sociedades cotizadas, vinculando el papel de estas y su actuación en los mercados en relación con la toma de decisiones en el poder político, cada vez más sometidas directa o indirectamente al poder de los mercados. El desarrollo del Estado Social y Democrático de Derecho, más allá de lo público, puede materializar la igualdad efectiva entre mujeres y hombres, adoptando una concreta medida de acción positiva: sistema de cuotas. En definitiva, se presenta una justificación constitucional para la necesaria adopción de dichas políticas, formulando una democracia paritaria para el Derecho Privado y una revisión normativa a modo de lege ferenda.
  • Talking on the Road to Emmaus

    Vandiver, Kevin (Lutheran School of Theology at Chicago, 2020-06-08)
    This essay traces the formation of race in society as a hierarchical mechanism to maintain privilege. It then tracks Christianity’s engorgement on power and its resultant all-encompassing “normed” theology, and the failure of said theology to liberate all bodies. Next, the author turns toward contextualization as a tool for the liberation of marginalized bodies from theologies that privilege whiteness. Finally, using the road to Emmaus story from Luke 24:13-35, the author argues that the moment of experiencing God through the stranger can be life-giving, as the table of Christ becomes the place where white privilege and power are leveled.

  • The Cheap Grace of White Privilege and the Costly Grace of Repentant Antiracism

    Mahn, Jason A. (Lutheran School of Theology at Chicago, 2020-06-07)
    In this essay, the author juxtaposes contemporary culture wars over white privilege with the critique of cheap grace by Martin Luther and Dietrich Bonhoeffer. This is done to show that grace as an alternative to works-righteousness and meritocracy can also be used ideologically to justify the status quo. Thus, Christians must continuously interrogate the use of grace to ask who benefits from it. The author then pairs broader Lutheran theological staples (bondage to sin, the call to repentance, a theology of the cross, and kenotic discipleship) with leading black prophetic voices and analyses of white privilege by critical race theorists. This is done to argue that Lutherans, alongside other denominations, are well-positioned to live into costly grace by hearing and heeding the call to become anti-racist disciples of Jesus.
  • Challenging Privilege through the Preaching and Teaching of Scripture

    Nave, Guy (Lutheran School of Theology at Chicago, 2020-06-08)
    This paper argues that privilege must be conceived as the privileging of some groups to the disadvantage of other groups, lest corrective measures that seek to reduce and/or eliminate disadvantages fall under the fallacious charge of “reverse discrimination.” The author then grapples with the story of Jesus’ encounter with the Canaanite woman from Matthew 15:21-28, showing how the story reveals an attitude of ethnic and patriarchal privilege, but also problematizes and challenges that privilege. The author concludes by calling preachers and teachers to reflect on our cultural privilege and to critically examine how we use it when interpreting and proclaiming biblical texts.
