047 | 妻子三部曲2:被注视的王室妻子和被规训的王室身体 Wife Trilogy Part II: The Royal Wives and Bodies

【聊了什么 The What】

这是“Wife三部曲"的第二部,以我们最最熟悉的“妻子”这个社会职能为圆心,画一个谨慎的半径,这个半径包括我们的思考和恐惧,包括作为妻子意味着什么。

这集,我们聚焦王室妻子们——从流行文化痴迷的凯特王妃,戴安娜王妃,再到日本的皇室女性——她们的病痛、生育历程、和被大众注视和检验的体验是怎样的?她们的身体如何被媒体咀嚼和消化?她们的身体如何从走入“王室妻子”这一刻就不再属于自己?

凯特王妃的病痛疑云,揭开了她作为完美的王室妻子和母亲在“the firm”的监视和运转中的另一面,同时,戴安娜作为“the firm”反叛者、梅根作为出逃者,是如何被埋葬在王室妻子的角色中,同时被王室妻子这个头衔所惩罚。除去英国王室之外,日本和其他国家的王室女性如何生存?

This is the 2nd part of CyberPink’s "Wife trilogy.” Centering on the ubiquitous role of "wife," we cautiously circumscribe a boundary around it. Within this boundary lie our contemplations and fear, our ponderings on the implications of being a wife.

In this episode, our discussion is about royal wives - from Kate Middleton, the object of pop culture's adoration, to the legendary Princess Diana, to the women of Japan's imperial family. We explore their ordeals with illness, the tribulations of childbirth, and the scrutiny of the public eye. How are their bodies dissected and consumed by the media? From the moment they assume the mantle of "royal wife," how do their bodies cease to be their own?

The specter of Kate's ailments unveils another facet of her role as the quintessential royal wife and mother, meticulously observed and governed by the machinations of "the firm." Diana, the defiant rebel against "the firm," and Meghan, the escapee, find themselves entombed within the role of "royal wife," even as the very title exacts its punishing toll. Beyond the British monarchy, we ponder the plight of royal women in Japan and nations abroad - how do they persevere?
