Conference: Contested Privates: Religion and Homosexuality in Public Discourse, 26.-28.10.2017, Utrecht

September 25th, 2017

Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam, University of Amsterdam and Utrecht University (Web)

Time: October 26-28, 2017
Venue: Utrecht, the Netherlands

In public discourse in Europe, religion and homosexuality are increasingly seen as each other’s opposites, and seem to be caught in an apparently necessary, self-evident tension. This implies that religion and homosexuality are imbued with a specific, exemplary meaning in relation to each other in heavily polarized debates which are driven by (political) questions on (national) identity, social coherence and the recognition of cultural differences. This conference aims to investigate how this oppositional pairing functions in the representation and positioning of religious and/or sexual minorities in the Netherlands and other European countries. It is organized in the context of the NWO funded research project Contested Privates: the oppositional pairing of religion and homosexuality in public debates in the Netherlands (2013-2017), carried out at the Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam and Utrecht University.

Venue: German Historical Institute, London
Time: 19.-21.07.2018
Abstract Submission: 15.10.2017

The history of material cultures offers important new ways of studying the significance of gender differences in the history of legal cultures by exploring new relationships between gender, law and material culture. Material and immaterial possession informs the self-image of individuals and societies, dynasties and families. A threefold scheme of legal distinction differentiates between usufruct (1), possession (2), and property (3). Yet these relationships between individuals and objects are not only relevant to civil law, but correspond to political regimes. While usufruct, possession and property thus correspond to different forms of authority and society, they also have a bearing on gender relations on different levels of society. Usually, these gendered aspects of material culture are the products of traditional proximities between certain areas of activity and related groups of objects. Communities in early modern Europe can thus be said to have a gendered and often legally sanctioned relationship to the material world and the world of objects. Read more and source … (Web)

CfP: Powering the Power House: New Perspectives on Country House Communities (Event: 06/2018, Sheffield/Chatsworth); DL: 27.10.2017

September 22nd, 2017

Fiona Clapperton, Lauren Butler and Hannah Wallace; The University of Sheffield and Chatsworth

Time: 25-26 June 2018
Venue: University of Sheffield and Chatsworth, UK
Abstract Submission: 27 October 2017

This two-day conference seeks to bring together historians and heritage professionals to explore experiences of daily life and work in an extraordinary setting: the country house estate. The great rural seats of wealthy landowners have long captured academic interest and popular imagination. After the prospect of destruction threatened the survival of England’s remaining country houses in the 1970s, a concerted effort was made to protect them, and to recover the stories of those connected to them. Nevertheless, the history of the country house has primarily been perceived through the eyes of the landowners, with servants, tenants, and tradesmen confined to the peripheries – their lives dedicated to powering the power house.

This conference will focus on the individuals, groups, influences, and ideas that defined life in country houses and the communities surrounding them. The first day of the conference will take place at the University of Sheffield, and the second at Chatsworth, Derbyshire. This conference aims to foster cross-institutional dialogue on new approaches to the analysis and interpretation of country house communities. Read more and source … (Web)

CfP: Global Trends in the Popular Culture and Nighttime Entertainment of European Cities, 1880s–1930s (Event: 08/2018, Roma); DL: 05.10.2017

September 21st, 2017

Session SS28 at the 14th EAUH International Conference on Urban History; Antje Dietze, University of Leipzig and Alexander Vari, Marywood University (Web)

Venue: Roma Tre University
Time: 29.08.-01.09.2018
Abstract Submission: 05.10.2017

The role that dance halls, cabarets and variety theatres, and cultural imports like the cakewalk, tango and jazz played in the rise of a pan European and global commercial popular culture, has been addressed either from the perspective of a single city or a comparison between Western and North American metropolises. Thus while London, Berlin, and Paris and their connections especially to New York have attracted scholarly attention, less is known about how other European cities like Lisbon, Barcelona, Milan, Rome, Vienna, Budapest, Belgrade, Bucharest, Athens, Cracow, St. Petersburg, Copenhagen and Stockholm, to mention just a few, have included both original genres and sources, and have been connected through their emerging nighttime entertainment industry to global trends within the sphere of urban popular culture.

With this in mind, this session aims to explore several sets of questions: What was the local impact of turn-of-the-century and interwar global popular cultural trends? Why were some popular culture genres that … read more and source (Web).

Zeit: 27.09.2017, 18.00 Uhr
Ort: AK Bibliothek Wien, Prinz-Eugen-Str. 20-22, 1040 Wien

Die Publikation enthält die unveröffentlichte Dissertation der österreichischen Sozialforscherin und Sozialpsychologin Marie Jahoda (1907-2001) aus dem Jahr 1932 mit 52 Protokollen über lebensgeschichtliche Interviews mit Frauen und Männern, die um 1850 geboren sind. Damit wird erstmals eine einzigartige Datenquelle erschlossen und der Öffentlichkeit präsentiert, die differenzierte Einblicke in die Arbeits- und Lebensverhältnisse in Wien im Zeitraum von 1850 bis 1930 eröffnet. Sozial gehören die Befragten unterschiedlichen Gruppen der Arbeiterschaft an, den Gewerbetreibenden, den Arbeitern in Handwerk oder Industrie oder – insbesondere die Frauen unter den Befragten – der Hausdienerschaft. Die Lebensgeschichten machen die ökonomische Dynamik und die mit ihr verbundene räumliche und soziale Mobilität der zweiten Hälfte des 19. Jahrhunderts und der ersten drei Dekaden des 20. Jahrhunderts nachvollziehbar.Der historische Text wird in drei unterschiedliche Kontexte eingebettet: Meinrad Ziegler erläutert Read the rest of this entry »
