Freitag, März 30th, 2012

Women’s History Sources (Web)

The Collaborative blog Women’s History Sources serves as a current awareness tool for anyone who is interested in primary sources at archives, historic sites and museums, and libraries. Although there is an emphasis on U.S. women’s history, the goal is for the blog to be international in scope. Some of the types of sources that the blog covers:

  • New exhibits in archives, libraries, and museums
  • New digital collections (artifacts, diaries, oral histories, photos, etc.)
  • Featured objects/documents from other blogs and websites
  • „In the News“ – stories that feature original documents or artifacts.
  • „On this Day“ – digital resources that are related to an event on a specific date.
  • Recent books that include letters, diaries, photographs, etc. (mehr …)

Zeit: Mittwoch, 18. April 2012, 18.30 Uhr
Ort: Institut für Wissenschaft und Kunst IWK, 1090 Wien, Berggasse 17

In her talk Erzsébet Barát (Budapest) wishs to re-think how to approach the various forms of hate-speech in Hungarian media discourses. The public discussions in the liberal-left media about hate speech, using anti-Semitic labelling serves as a precedent for thinking strategically about discrimination against other minorities, with a particular focus on homophobic stigmatization.

Abstract: 15.04.2012

This special issue aims at the discussion of key issues on contemporary themes on gender and sexuality, looking at the intersections between queer studies and feminist research, theory and activism.

We would like to invite scholars and activists to submit their papers on gender studies considering queer studies and feminist research. We are expecting theoretical and methodological discussions and further developments in the area, as well as activist inputs within this debate. Key areas of the debate we are looking are listed below:

  • Intersectionality between gender, sex, class and race, and other hierarchical categories, such as age, religion, education, disability; Homophobia and heteronormativity/heterosexism (mehr …)

The year 2012 is the 200th anniversary of when the “Allgemeines Bürgerliches Gesetzbuch” (ABGB; the Austrian Civil Code) came into effect in the German hereditary lands of Austria. The proclaimed objective of this codification was the creation of a legal system for a new – civil – society. However, it actually codified the hierarchy relations in a different way.

Power relations are organised and structured largely by means of law in the way in which they are anchored territorially. (mehr …)

CfP: Arabischer Frühling? Alte und neue Geschlechterpolitiken in einer Region im Umbruch (Event: 07/2012, Hamburg); DL: 15.04.2012

Ort: Universität Hamburg
Datum: 06.-08.07.2012
Abstract: 15.04.2012, CfP als PDF

Ziel der Tagung ist eine zeitgeschichtlich nahe und interdisziplinäre Diskussion der Frage nach politischer und gesellschaftlicher Partizipation von Frauen in muslimischen Gesellschaften vor, während und nach dem Arabischen Frühling, sowie der Bedeutung von Geschlechterkonstruktionen in einer Gesellschaft im Wandel. Gibt es eine Veränderung in den patriarchal geprägten Gesellschaften hinsichtlich Geschlechterpolitiken? Inwieweit werden Geschlechterverhältnisse neu verhandelt? Wie ist die aktuelle Situation von Frauen in den instabilen Gesellschaften? Kommt es zu einem Erstarken des Feminismus oder eher einer islamistisch-konservativen Entwicklung? Welche Rolle spielen und spielten Frauen in der Politik muslimischer Gesellschaften? Welche Verknüpfungen gibt es zwischen Islam, Feminismus und Revolution? Welche Rolle spielt Männlichkeit in der arabischen Revolution? (mehr …)

Abstract: 15.04.2012

Flows between the two shores of the Mediterranean Sea unveil a crossroad of diverse cultural, social, and religious experiences. Continuous conversations between neighboring regions facilitated the interplay between assimilation and reshaping of ideas, displaying a reality of turmoil and permanent evolution. In this sense, the Mediterranean appears as a lively workshop, where feminism is continuously reshaped by a plurality of cultures. Studies by Margot Badran on Egypt (1995), Mounira Charrad (2001) and Zakia Daoud (1993) on Maghreb, Julie Peteet on Palestine (1991), amongst many others, contributed to the de-construction of an alleged homogeneity within the “Arab-Islamic” world, highlighting the interplay between politics and gender. As these authors demonstrated, different political agendas have produced different outcomes.

Meanwhile, the need to transcend national borders and to re-write the history of feminists movements is part of the contemporary historical thought, as it is discussed by Leila Rupp (1997), Edith Saurer, Margareth Lanzinger, Elysabeth Frysak (2006) (mehr …)

CfP: Gender and Subculture (Event: 09/2012, Norhumbria Univ./UK); DL: 01.04.2012

Montag, März 26th, 2012

Time: Friday 7th September 2012
Venue: Northumbria University (UK)
Abstract: 01.04.2012

The notion of ’subcultures‘, articulated most prominently by Dick Hebdige in his 1979 seminal work, Subculture: The Meaning of Style, has undergone much revision in recent years. However a critical engagement with gender remains absent within the majority of work on ’subcultures‘. Indeed, Angela McRobbie’s (1980) ‚Settling Accounts with Subcultures: A Feminist Critique? provides the cornerstone of our symposium, in terms of interrogating how gender is articulated in ‚underground‘ cultural and social environments. The question of whether ’subculture‘ is still a valid term and how far ’subcultural‘ manifestations are reductively incorporated into the mainstream are relevant topics on the academic agenda. However research of girls and women’s subcultural productions and engagements from queer, feminist and transgender scholars (e.g. Jack Halberstam, Doreen Piano, Susan Driver, Elizabeth K Keenan, Mary Celeste Kearney and Kath Browne) carve out a new territory for understanding the ’subcultural‘.
