Institut für Wirtschafts- und Sozialgeschichte-Kolloquium

Zeit: Mittwoch, 2.12., 9:00 – 10:00 Uhr

  • Kommentar: Sigrid Wadauer

„Unzucht wider die Natur mit Personen desselben Geschlechts“ (§ 129 Ib Strafgesetz von 1852) war in Österreich bis 1971 eine Straftat. Das Gesetz definierte die Handlung nicht weiter. Der große Interpretationsspielraum führte zu teilweise starken Schwankungen in der Rechtsprechung wie auch im Ausmaß und in der Intensität der Verfolgung. Der Werkstattbericht behandelt methodische Problemstellungen des gleichnamigen Dissertationsprojekts, wobei quantifizierende Aspekte in den Fokus genommen und anhand erster Ergebnisse diskutiert werden.

Decades of scholarship have brought considerable nuance, specificity, and intersectional agency to the history of same-sex desires and identities. Most historians of sexuality pause, or at least acknowledge anachronism, before naming a “homosexual” or “lesbian” subject from a time before those words existed. Yet “the heterosexual” too often remains a diffuse, ineffable presence, “always already” present and devoid of historical contingency or ambiguity.

This volume of original essays seeks to challenge ahistorical approaches to the heterosexual subject. What is the history of heterosexuality? Who or what is the heterosexual subject, and how has it changed over time? How has the history of heterosexuality intertwined with the histories of race, class, and ethnicity to shape ideas of difference? (mehr …)

Journal of Resistance Studies (Web); Editors: Tiina Seppälä and Sara C. Motta

Women are increasingly important actors in a broad spectrum of contemporary struggles and social movements in the so-called “global South”. The often cited feminization of poverty in which racialized subaltern women were framed as merely victims of contemporary neoliberalism is being reframed in practice by the emergence of a multiplicity of female political subjectivities and a marked feminization of resistance (Motta, 2013). Women’s political engagement is varied and complex – some fight against neoliberal development projects that displace thousands of poor people, whilst others contest new forms of colonialism that have resulted in conflicts over land, forests and water, causing displacement and forced migration on a massive scale. Many movements work broadly for causes of social justice, equality and dignity. Some concentrate particularly on women’s rights, and struggle against patriarchal capitalist coloniality, sexism and heteronormativity. Importantly, as noted by postcolonial feminists (e.g. Mohanty, 2003; Motta, 2013), racialized subaltern women who simultaneously face multiple oppressions are in a position to create and experiment with new political subjectivities, re-imagine emancipatory politics, and produce and embody multiple grounds of epistemological difference and becoming. Viewed from this perspective, the emergence of female political subjectivities and the feminization of resistance raise many important epistemological and political questions. Read more … (Web)

Weblog: „Socks for the Boys!“ My Great Aunt Norah’s wartime diaries, 1938-1948 – online!

Sonntag, November 29th, 2015

1941-4-17-apr0003Norah Hodgkinson, Alison Twells’ great aunt, left a suitcase of letters, photographs and pocket diaries spanning seventy-one years.

This blog explores Norah’s diaries from 1938, when she was a twelve year-old scholarship girl from a working-class family in an East Midlands village, through the course of the Second World War. Through Norah’s eyes we see a family, a community and a nation at war. As she records her thoughts, hopes and loves, as well as her daily life, we see something of what it was like to be a modern girl in the middle decades of a century that saw unprecedented changes in women’s lives.

Intriguingly for me, Norah’s diaries contain a mystery, a story which begins with a pair of navy seaboot socks knitted for the war effort in 1940; and inside which, before they were handed in to the lady from the WRVS, Norah, then 15, cheekily slipped her name and school address. The socks were picked up from … read more. (Link)

Sonntag, November 29th, 2015

Home Front Girl Book Cover (2012)A Diary “of Love, Literature, and Growing Up in Wartime America”, written by Chicagoan Joan Wehlen Morrison from ages 14-20 from 1937-1943, edited by her daughter Susan Signe Morrison 2012.

“This diary of a smart, astute, and funny teenager provides a fascinating record of what an everyday American girl felt and thought during the Depression and the lead-up to World War II. Young Chicagoan Joan Wehlen describes her daily life growing up in the city and ruminates about the impending war, daily headlines, and major touchstones of the era—FDR’s radio addresses, the Lindbergh kidnapping, Goodbye, Mr. Chips and Citizen Kane, Churchill and Hitler, war work and Red Cross meetings. Included are Joan’s charming doodles of her latest dress or haircut reflective of the era. Home Front Girl is not only an entertaining and delightful read but also an important primary source—a vivid account of a real American girl’s lived experiences.” Read more … (Web)
