CfP: From War to Welfare. Global Perspectives since the 19th Century (Journal: Contemporanea); DL: 15.08.2018

Donnerstag, Juni 21st, 2018

Special Issue of the italian journal „Contemporanea“ (Web)

Proposals by: August 15, 2018

A large body of scholarship has shown how the experience of the two world wars in the twentieth century was a crucial catalyst for the creation of modern welfare states. However, war’s role in social legislation has yet to be conceptualized more fully. In mainstream comparative literature on the welfare state, war is typically considered a rare, anomalous occurrence that is conceived as a kind of exogenous shock, as an ‚abnormal event‘, a ‚black swan‘ emergency or a critical juncture. In this way, war has constituted a gray zone in the history of the welfare state.

By contrast, the question of the origins and development of social protection systems has been viewed primarily in relation to processes of modernization or as an instrument for managing social conflict.

Nonetheless, recent studies of different national contexts have shown the fruitfulness of an approach that looks at the welfare state through the interpretative paradigm of the welfare-warfare link (for example: Scheidel 2017; Obinger–Petersen 2015; Castle 2010). Moreover, recent research has also highlighted how (mehr …)

CfP: New perspectives in feminist labour history: work and activism (Event: Bologna, 01/2019); DL: 10.07.2018

Mittwoch, Juni 20th, 2018

EHLN working group “Feminist Labour History” (Web) and SISLAV working group “Gender and Labour”, supported by the Department of History and Cultures at Bologna University

Venue: Bologna
Time: 17-18 January 2019
Proposals by: 10.07.2018

The two-days conference explores new perspectives in gendered labour history as arising in Europe and around the world since the beginning of the 21st century. The conference builds on and moves forward the debates on and within feminist labour history which took place during the Turin (2015) and Paris (2017) conferences of the ELHN, with the aim of including selected papers in prospective book projects. The first day of the conference will be devoted to the theme work and gender in context, and addresses two large research contexts:

1) the variety of forms of work, waged and unwaged, emerging in different historical periods and places in formal as well as informal economies, and in occupations traditionally connoted as male or female;

2) the impact of socio-economic transformations at the crossroads of the productive and reproductive spheres.

Topics include (but are not limited) to the following:

  • precarious, informal, subsistence work
  • gender in typically male occupations or branches
  • gender and deindustrialization
  • the home/household/work nexus … read more (PDF)

CfP: Arbeitskonflikte und Gender – aktuelle und historische Perspektiven (Event: 03/2019, Nürnberg); DL: 31.08.2018 [REMINDERIN]

Mittwoch, Juni 20th, 2018

Institut für Soziologie, Friedrich-Alexander-Univ. Erlangen-Nürnberg (FAU) (Link), Lehrstuhl Didaktik der Geschichte (FAU), Institut für Politikwissenschaften (Univ. Marburg), Institut für Romanistik (FAU), Fachbereich Sozialökonomie (Univ. Hamburg)

Ort: Nürnberg
Zeit: 21.-22.03.2019
Bewerbungsschluss: 31.08.2018

Erwerbsarbeit als Form der Vergesellschaftung ist aktuell wie historisch durch Herrschafts- und Machtverhältnisse geprägt und deshalb konflikthaft. Die Tagung verfolgt die Idee, gesellschaftlichen und historischen Wandel durch die geschlechtssensible Analyse von Auseinandersetzungen und Kämpfen in und um Erwerbsarbeit zu thematisieren. Dabei soll es sowohl um kollektiv organisierte Formen von Arbeitskämpfen (z.B. gewerkschaftliche Streiks) gehen als auch um stärker individualisierte und dezentrale Konfliktformen.

Die sozialwissenschaftliche Forschung hat in ihrer Analyse traditionell den Antagonismus von Arbeit und Kapital in den Mittelpunkt gerückt, was seitdem jedoch eine erhebliche Differenzierung erfahren hat. Feministische Wissenschaftler*innen haben seit den 1970er Jahren die Vergeschlechtlichung von Arbeit herausgearbeitet, historisch begründet und interdisziplinär diskutiert. Es wurden Verknüpfungen hergestellt mit der Kritik an Kapitalismus, Kolonialismus und bürgerlicher Gesellschaft sowie mit diversen Kategorien sozialer Ungleichheit wie z.B. Klasse, Ethnie, sexuelle Orientierung etc. – intersektionale Perspektiven sind also … weiterlesen und Quelle (Web).

CfP: Gender and Labour Disputes: Perspectives Past and Present (Event: 03/2018, Nuremberg); DL: 31.08.2018 [REMINDERIN]

Dienstag, Juni 19th, 2018

FAU Erlangen-Nürnberg, Philipps Universität Marburg and Universität Hamburg

Venue: Nuremberg, Germany
Time: 21/22 March 2019
Proposals due: 31 August 2018

Historically, and to this day, earning a living through paid work, as a form of socialisation, has been permeated by relationships of dominance and power, giving rise to substantial potential for conflict. The planned conference will aim to highlight aspects of societal and historical change through gender-sensitive analysis of disputes and conflicts in and around paid work. Both collectively organised forms of labour disputes, such as strikes called by unions, and more individual, decentralised types of conflict fall within the scope of the conference.

Traditionally, research in the social sciences has focused on the adversarial relationship between labour and capital. More recent work has driven the emergence of substantial differentiation and diversification in regard to this question. In a process commencing in the 1970s, feminist researchers have identified and theorised the gendering of labour, engaging in interdisciplinary discourse around the issue and creating links to critiques of capitalism, colonialism and bourgeois society and to a broad range of categories of social inequality including class, ethnic origin and sexual orientation. This work has mad … read more and source (Web).

CfP: Global Labor Migration: Past and Present (Event, 06/2019, Amsterdam); DL: 01.07.2018 [REMINDERIN]

Dienstag, Juni 12th, 2018

The Global Labor Migration Network (Web)

Time: June 20-22, 2019
Venue: International Institute for Social History in Amsterdam
Proposals by: July 1, 2018

Labor migration is a vast, global, and highly fluid phenomenon in the 21st century, capturing public attention and driving political controversy. There are more labor migrants working in areas beyond their birth country or region than ever before. Although scattered across the social ladder, migrant workers have always clustered, at least initially, in the bottom rungs of the working class. Even as cross-border or inter-regional movement may beckon as a source of hope and new opportunity, the experience for the migrants and their families is often fraught with peril.

Labor migrants are vulnerable: they are exploited more easily by recruiters and employers, and are less likely to benefit from union representation. They often face arrest or deportation when attempting to fight for their rights, and are bound to special documents that limit their ability to change jobs. Moreover, as recent history reminds us, host-country fears directed towards labor migrants can also spark larger political movements characterized by nativist, racist, or even outright fascist tendencies. Clearly, there is a need to (mehr …)

Ausstellung: PFLEGE DAS LEBEN. Betreuung | Pflege | Sorgekultur, Laufzeit: bis 07.10.2018, Hittisau [REMINDERIN]

Donnerstag, Mai 31st, 2018

Krankenpflegehaus in Alberschwende / Helmut Klapper, 1974Frauenmuseum Hittisau (Web)

Ort: Frauenmuseum Hittisau, Bregenzerwald
Laufzeit: bis 07.10.2018

Die Zukunft der Pflegeberufe ist ein intensiv diskutiertes gesundheitspolitisches Thema, das für alle Altersstufen und Gesellschaftsschichten von Bedeutung ist. Ältere und kranke Menschen sind direkt betroffen, junge Menschen erleben Pflege als Teil ihres Alltags dort, wo Angehörige und Bekannte gepflegt werden oder pflegen. Und besonders Frauen sind betroffen: Care-Arbeit ist gesellschaftlich nicht gleichmäßig verteilt. Sie wird vielmehr zum überwiegenden Teil von Frauen geleistet. Dies gilt sowohl für den Bereich der unbezahlten Care-Arbeit als auch für den bezahlten Bereich. Aber auch als Gepflegte stellen Frauen statistisch die Mehrheit.

Das Frauenmuseum Hittisau zeigt bis Herbst 2018 eine Ausstellung zu diesem aktuellen und brisanten Thema. Es handelt sich dabei um ein Projekt, in dessen Entwicklung zahlreiche Pflege- und Betreuungsorganisationen im Bregenzerwald beteiligt waren.

Einerseits widmet sich die Ausstellung der (mehr …)

CfP: Reproductive Labor in Post-Soviet Contexts (Event: 11/2018, San Jose); DL: 16.04.2018

Dienstag, April 10th, 2018

Panel at the American Anthropological Association’s Annual Meeting (Web); Polina Vlasenko, Dept. of Anthropology, Indiana University

Venue: San Jose
Time: November 14-18, 2018
Proposals by April 16, 2018

This panel’s aim is to engender a discussion between scholars working on different forms of reproductive labor in post-Soviet contexts, such as domestics, wives, sex workers, surrogate mothers and ova donors. The robust body of literature on social reproduction, feminization of labor and migration, and commoditization of the female reproductive bodies, intimacies and labors, has shown how the neoliberal restructuring of the global economy since the late 1970’s resulted in the emergence of the transnational feminized service industries.

This panel examines these new forms of unacknowledged waged reproductive labor outsourced from Western Europe and North America to the post-Soviet countries in the Eastern Europe. Drawing on the feminist intellectual tradition that rejects the separation between the domains of production and reproduction, it invites papers that explore how the intimate labor in the post-Soviet contexts, including domestic, emotional, sexual and reproductive activities, is foundational for the accumulation of capital and value generation.
