Seminar: Bortom rösträtten: Nordisk workshop om kön, politik och medborgarskap, 12.06.08, Huddinge

Freitag, Dezember 21st, 2007

Kvinnor i Norden har varit politiska medborgare i cirka 100 år och rösträttsrörelsen var den första feministiska massmobiliseringen av kvinnor i historien. Men vad hände sedan? Vad kom reformen att innebära för ”framtiden”? Vilka nya perspektiv kan läggas på frågor om medborgarskap, representation och politikens genus när jämförelser görs med processer efter och bortom rösträtten? Har kvinnor som grupp blivit den politiska kategori som vissa rösträttskvinnor drömde om? (mehr …)

CfP: Gender and the Long Postwar: Reconsiderations of the United States and the Two Germanys, 1945-1989 (Conference), Deadline: 15.04.08

Freitag, Dezember 21st, 2007

Conference date: 30.05.2008 – 31.05.2008, Washington

From the perspective of gender, we would argue, the war opened up possibilities for women and men on both sides of the Atlantic. But the extent to which those possibilities were realized varied considerably across societies. This conference will bring together a group of scholars to explore why this was so.
Comparing gender developments in the United States and the two Germanys during “the long postwar” will allow us to examine these variations and, in particular, to see how gender developments intersected and were affected by the trajectories of market democratic and communist regimes as well as the impact of idiosyncratic cultural continuities. By extending the investigation to 1989, we will be able to trace both continuities and change over a long expanse of gender relations, sorting out the impact of the war itself from other factors that came into play during the period.

CfP: Sexing Travel. Intimacy and Subjectivity in Women’s International Tourism (Publikation), Deadline: 15.01.08

Freitag, Dezember 21st, 2007

Edited by Susan Frohlick and Jessica Jacobs. Abstracts accepted until January 15, 2008. Full chapters due by July 1, 2008

2009 publication target date. We are seeking ethnographically informed papers that focus on the multiple dimensions of women’s participation in sexual and intimate relationships with local men or women in international tourist destinations, to be included in an edited volume on transnational/cultural intimacy and sexual subjectivity in women’s travel. We are currently looking into various channels for publication, and are aiming for eight contributors. Scholarship on ‘ethno-sexual relations’ (Nagel, 2003) between tourists and locals is growing and reflects, in our view, the expansion of sex tourism in late capitalism from a predominantly masculine terrain (tied into ideas around the modern subject) and historical practice to a global phenomenon that includes the gendered consumption practices of First World women shaped by some women’s increasing economic power and mobility.
