CfP: Time and Activism: Ruptures, Experiences, Aftermaths, 1848-1968 (Event, 07/2018, Durham); DL: 10.03.2018 [REMINDER]

Freitag, Februar 23rd, 2018

Matthew Kerry (Durham University) and Alex Paulin-Booth (Durham University)

Venue: Durham University
Time: 05.07.2018
Abstracts due 10.03.2018

‘We stand on the last promontory of the centuries!… Why should we look back, when what we want is to break down the mysterious doors of the Impossible? Time and Space died yesterday. We already live in the absolute, because we have created eternal, omnipresent speed.’ So demanded Filippo Tommaso Marinetti in The Futurist Manifesto the destruction of the decaying old world and the embracing of a radical, new, industrial future cleansed through violence.

Time is a key component of political projects. Radicalism—of both left and right—looks to the future or to the past in its challenge to established orders. This one-day workshop will focus on the role of time in left and right political radicalism during a period marked by vast social change, waves of activism and new radical political movements. 2018 is a timely moment to reflect on these themes, as it sees the anniversaries of 1848 and 1968, while radical politics are on the upsurge across Europe, and more widely.

CfP: Translating Feminism: Multi-disciplinary Perspectives on Text, Place and Agency (Event: 06/2018, Glasgow); DL: 16.03.2018

Donnerstag, Februar 22nd, 2018

Leverhulme Trust International Network ‘Translating Feminism: Transfer, Transgression, Transformation’, University of Glasgow, UK

Venue: Glasgow
Time: 13.-15.06.2018
Abstracts due: 16.03.2018

The transformation of women’s sense of self – individually and collectively – is one of the most significant socio-cultural events of the past 50 years to have occurred around the globe. Western-focused historiographies of ‘second-wave’ feminisms have only made the first few steps in addressing the geographical biases in their self-narration and in the very definition of feminism. A whole world unfolds when one considers the many guises of female agency aimed at social transformation, and articulated through text.

The focus of this Conference is on the translocal, transcultural and translingual connections between such texts and their authors in both historical and contemporary contexts. In what ways do texts connect activists operating in different local environments? How are actors influenced by intellectual and political sources originating from other localities and different cultural environments? What happens to a text when it is adapted to a new environment and is politically operationalised in different circumstances? Read more and source … (Web)

CfP: Sexualität und Konsum – 18. bis 21. Jhd. (Event, 11/2018, Wien); DL: 30.04.2018

Mittwoch, Februar 21st, 2018

Franz X. Eder, Mario Keller, Johann Kirchknopf, Oliver Kühschelm, Karin Moser, Stefan Ossmann, Insitut für Wirtschafts- und Sozialgeschichte, Universität Wien

Ort: Wien
Zeit: 23.-24.11.2018
Bewerbungsschluss: 30.04.2018

Für heutige (westliche) Gesellschaften liegt es auf der Hand, dass Sexualität und Konsum ein enges wechselseitiges Verhältnis eingegangen sind. Unsere sexuelle Lebenswelt ist ausgestattet mit kommerziellen Gütern und Dienstleistungen, welche die Vorstellungen und Wünsche, aber auch das Handeln prägen und beeinflussen. Umgekehrt existieren kaum Waren und Dienste, die eine Aufladung durch sexualisierte Medien- und Produktkommunikation ausschließen.

Die Tagung „Sexualität und Konsum“ stellt die Genese dieser Interaktion seit dem 18. Jahrhundert in den Mittelpunkt und fokussiert vor allem auf Formen von Hybridisierung. Mit Sexualität und Konsum stellt sie zwei schillernde Begriffe in den Mittelpunkt, über deren Definition, Bedeutungsfelder und Synthese sich trefflich diskutieren lässt. Weiterlesen … (PDF)

CfP: Living like a girl – Agency, social vulnerability and welfare measures in a European context (Anthology); DL: 05.03.2018

Montag, Februar 19th, 2018

Maria A. Vogel and Linda Arnell (Eds.)

Abstracts due: March 5 2018

In a European context, little research is done on girls’ life situations, social problems and social vulnerability. During the last decades, large-scale social changes has taken place within the European context, such as neoliberal developments within social policy, changes in the shape of economic crisis, globalization and the growth of EU. These changes have affected understandings of girls and girlhood, as well as the societal conditions for how girls can shape their lives. Not least regarding vast discrepancies between neo-liberal understandings of girls own responsibilities and the material limitations many girls still face. The geopolitical changes and migration of today also affect girls’ lives, as well as how girls and girlhood are conceptualized and subject to political decision making. It is therefore crucial to investigate and analyse the life and social vulnerability of girls today.

To devote an anthology to girls’ social vulnerabilities and social problems in a European context is an important contribution towards expanding the knowledge of social problems in the field of Girlhood Studies. The Europe context is (mehr …)

CfP: Gendering Memory (Masculinities: A Journal of Identity and Culture); DL: 19.08.2018

Freitag, Februar 16th, 2018

Masculinities: A Journal of Identity and Culture; Special issue Editors: Andrea Petö and Ann Phoenix (Web)

Proposals due: 19 August 2018

Memory has become a buzzword in the study of the past and memory analysis is increasingly common. Yet, new forms of political radicalization foreground memory politics in ways that are producing multi-faceted exclusions, intolerance and erasure as well as the exclusion of challenging memories from minoritised ethnic groups. At the same time, memory politics also produce new solidarities.

Some anniversaries that commemorate historical events force issues previously submerged into public view. For example, the 2017 Danish commemoration of the centenary of their sale of the Danish West Indies to the US (now the US Virgin Isles) raises questions about the meanings of loss of, or emancipation from, empire for colonisers and those colonised. The notion that repression of such memories have long-lasting and damaging cultural consequences is increasingly the subject of academic theorising. This is exemplified by Paul Gilroy’s (2005) notion that failure to engage with the lessons of the colonial period produces ‘postcolonial melancholia’(c.f. Goswami, 2013), which, as Jane Flax (2010) suggests results because burying the past does not obliterate the dead, who retur n to haunt us. Read more … (Web).

CfP: Freedom, Equality… for Everyone? Women Fighting for Social Advancement 1700-1918 (Event: 11/2018, Wroclaw); DL: 30.06.2018

Donnerstag, Februar 15th, 2018

Historical Institute, Institutes of English Studies and Romance Studies of the University of Wroclaw (Web)

Venue: Wroclaw
Time: 20.-21.11.2018
Proposals due 30.06.2018

The Historical Institute of the University of Wroclaw, together with the Institutes of English Studies and Romance Studies, invite scholars and PhD students to participate in the international conference Freedom, Equality… for Everyone? Women Fighting for Social Advancement 1700-1918, to be held in Wroc?aw, Poland, on November 20-21, 2018. The first words of the conference topic invoke the slogan of the French Revolution which aimed at democratizing society and, consequently, changing the old-world order. These postulates would seem to remain valid today, as we celebrate the 100th anniversary of the end of World War I, which contributed significantly to the progressive implementation of Enlightenment ideas, the enshrinement of the right to vote for women, and the establishment of gender equality in the majority of European countries. Although attempts to improve women’s position in society can be observed throughout history, we would like to concentrate our discussion on “the long 18th and 19th centuries”, as that era’s political, economic, and – most importantly – mental transformations set the stage for 20th-century breakthroughs.
