Special Talk - "How the notion of harassment emerged in modern societies" by Dr. Claudine Haroche

Friday, September 29, 2023 - 15:00 to 16:30
L4E48

According to the philosophers of the Enlightenment, it is a moral duty to recognize others as equals worth of respect and recognition. Jean-Jacques Rousseau in the Discourse on the origins of inequality and Adam Smith in the Treatise of moral feelings have analyzed the social inequalities and forms of domination which have persisted over the centuries and are still expressed by various kinds of unrespectful and violent behaviors. Sexual harassment whose victims are mostly women is the most conspicuous, but moral bullying, especially in the work place has also emerged as an explicit issue in modern societies, which needs to be seriously dealt with. The respect owed to anyone is not only a matter of moral duty. It has become a right inscribed in laws protecting the potential victims of all kind of harassment. Transforming a moral precept into a legal right is certainly a social progress. It raises however issues which will be discussed in the talk.

Join us in taking action to raise awareness while creating hope. As we remember 21,881 people who lost their lives to suicide last year in Japan, we aim to walk 21,881 steps around the OIST campus.

However, walking isn’t the only option. Whether you’re cycling, swimming, dancing or meditating for 21,881 seconds – whatever you choose to do, it all matters and all are welcome! If you would like your steps/ seconds to be counted, please email Ganjuu so we may collate all our efforts together!

You can register for TELL Step Up Challenge via their website. There is a ¥1,500 sign-up fee, however this is not required to participate. ( https://www.tellevents.org/events/step-up-2023 ) The campaign aims to raise awareness of mental health issues.

去年、自殺で亡くなった21881名の命を覚え、自殺防止の支援と理解の拡充のため、 OIST のキャンパス内を21881歩、歩くことを目指します。

しかし、歩くこと以外にも、サイクリングや水泳、ダンス、21,881秒の瞑想など、どんなことでも大歓迎です。歩数や秒数のカウントをしてほしい方は、Ganjuuまでメールでご連絡ください。TELL のウェブサイトから登録することも可能ですが ( https://www.tellevents.org/events/step-up-2023 ) 1500 円の参加費がかかりますので、必須ではありません。

このキャンペーンは、メンタルヘルスに対する意識改革を促すことを目的としております。
