CfP: Histories of Disadvantage: Meanings, Mechanisms, and Politics (Event: 11/2018, Phoenix); DL: 16.02.2018

44th Annual Meeting of the Social Science History Association (Web)

Venue: Phoenix, Arizona
Time: November 8-11, 2018
Absracts due February 16, 2018

The drivers and distribution of disadvantage remain as enduring concerns for social scientists. The unfairly disadvantaged has operated as a contested category, leading to schisms within and between groups, across racial, ethnic, and socio-economic divides, sometimes by virtue of gender, sexuality, faith, or flag. In recognition of these concerns, we seek panel proposals and papers that examine how history, politics, culture, institutions, and organizational practices shape (and are shaped by) these disadvantages. We also welcome papers that generate historically-informed theory and that thickly describe disadvantaged and disadvantaging life-worlds. We construe the topic of disadvantage broadly, including its causes and consequences as well as the shared understandings held by both the disadvantaged and those facilitating such conditions.

Although the work of social science historians and historically-informed social scientists has no limits in time or period, contemporary debates remind us of past important events that have affected disadvantage around the globe, including the Taiping Rebellion, the 1871 Brazilian Law of Free Birth, the 1874 failure of the Freedmen’s Savings and Trust, the 1911 Mines and Works Act No 12 in South Africa, the 1935 Social Security Act … read more (PDF).

Instytut Historii Polskiej Akademii Nauk (Web)

Venue: Warsaw
Time: 27.-29.11.2018
Abstract Submission: 31.01.2018

The decree of the Head of State and Prime Minister granting full voting rights to all Polish citizens „without regard to sex“ issued in November 1918, was a milestone in the development of civic equality. It was also a special moment for women’s emancipation movements, being at the same time the high point of their political efforts and the beginning of their socio-political participation as citizens with full rights of the newly recreated Polish state.
The hundredth anniversary of the introduction of these revolutionary laws, which falls in November 2018 in many European countries, is cause for reflection on the scope and character of equal rights over the course of this relatively long period, methods used in the fight for the equal political and legal position of women, as well as the role of state institutions and national and ethnic communities in these processes.

CfP: War, the Body, and Communities (Event: 09/2018, Pittsburgh); DL: 19.01.2018 [REMINDER]

German Studies Association “War and Violence Network” (Web)

Time: 27.-30.09.2018
Venue: Pittsburgh, PA
Abstracts due 19.01.2018

War experiences and legacies affect individual bodies and broader communities. War violates and traumatizes bodies as it simultaneously destroys and builds communities. War contributes different narratives about the body and communities in relation to conflict and violence. The panel series explores themes that includes the forming and disciplining of bodies for war, the disfiguration of bodies during war, “disembodied” contemporary warfare, and the disappearances of the body during war.

The body can carry the actual scars of violence and become a metaphor for the terrain of pain. The body can be a weapon as well as a victim of war; it can execute, document, archive, aesthetize, and politicize war. Wartime communities can develop from the idea of a shared “bodily” wartime experience. Communities represent a dynamic entity constructed by common encounters, attitudes, and emotions and can include victims, mourners, widows, protesters, veterans, survivors, perpetrators; and their respective representations, experiences, and negotiations with their own (or other) bodies.

German Studies Association Conference; Jennifer Hosek und Sonja Klocke (Web)

Time: 27.-30.09.2018
Venue: Pittsburgh, PA
Abstracts due 10.01.2018

2018 marks 100 years of women’s suffrage in Germany and Austria, early European adopters behind only the Scandinavian countries, and 47 years post-suffrage in Switzerland, a late adopter trailed only by Lichtenstein.

What does universal suffrage mean now, in a Germany in which the Chancellor is a woman and the Parliament includes a party that claims to be an “Alternative für Deutschland”; in a Europe that is regionalizing and bunkering; in a world in which governments are in deficit while the richest citizens and multinationals avoid taxation and finance their chosen interests?

What did the vote mean then, during the heat of the struggles; when activists risked lives and livelihoods for more voice in public decision-making and self-determination; when societies were organized around working-class women’s double burdens and bourgeois women’s matrimonial hearths?
