CfP: The Family, Human Rights and Internationalism. Global Historical-Sociological Perspectives (Event: 11/2017, Göttingen); DL: 31.03.2017

Februar 22nd, 2017

Institute of Sociology, University of Goettingen; Julia Moses and Matthias Koenig

Time: 10-11 November 2017
Venue: University of Göttingen
Proposals due: 31.03.2017

Historical and historical-sociological research on the history of human rights discourse and law has abounded in recent years. However, it has neglected one of the key issues that informed early thinking about human rights: the family as a protected category. This conference addresses this issue by approaching it from the perspective of global historical sociology. In this way, the conference also sheds important light on the historical diffusion of cultural and legal norms on the family and sexuality. It reflects on various religious and other imaginaries of the family and considers how they emerged and spread across the globe. How have human rights law and discourse intersected with the family and sexuality? How has this connection taken shape in different historical contexts? And, how has it evolved since the nineteenth century? Read more and source … (Web)

CfP: Engendering Difference: Sexism, Power and Politics (Event: 05/2017, Maribor); DL: 10.03.2017 [REMINDER]

Februar 22nd, 2017

Faculty of Arts, University of Maribor (Web) Devil07012017-resize-color-levo2-7

12-13 May 2017
Venue: Faculty of Arts, University of Maribor, Slovenia
Proposals by: 10 March 2017

Equality—sought through many movements throughout the 20th century, and still elusive in the 21st—demands the address of what it seeks to eliminate: difference. Although multiple forms of difference complicate the ideal level playing field in human endeavors, gender difference remains a stubbornly salient construct.

Our conference aims to open exploration of the issues of gender and the difference it creates in human lives, inviting research on both its historical and contemporary effects. Whether in the post-socialist climate of central and eastern Europe, in the historical movements of first-and second-wave feminism, or in cultural expressions such as literature, film and art, constructs of gender underlie our social, political and linguistic assumptions. If a gender imbalance persists (and the issue is open for debate), then redressing it requires an interdisciplinary approach. Read more (Web)

Buchpräsentation: Sylvia Köchl: »Das Bedürfnis nach gerechter Sühne« Wege von »Berufsverbrecherinnen« in das Konzentrationslager Ravensbrück, 08.05.2017, Wien

Februar 21st, 2017

big_9783854765073Verband feministischer Wissenschafterinnen (Web), Veranstaltungsreihe feminismen diskutieren

Zeit: Mo., 08.05.2017, 19:00 Uhr
Ort: Depot, Breite Gasse 3, 1070 Wien (Web)

Die Nazis träumten von einer verbrechensfreien Gesellschaft. Sie zogen Ideen und Dis­kur­se rechtsextremer Kriminalisten heran und konzipierten die »vorbeugende Ver­bre­chens­­bekämpfung«. Sie wollten also Ver­brechen »be­kämp­fen«, bevor sie über­haupt geschahen. Men­schen wurden als »Berufs­ver­bre­che­r/in­nen« klassi­fiziert und in »Vorbeugungs­haft« genommen, das heißt, in einem Kon­zen­tra­tions­lager interniert und mit dem »grünen Win­­kel« gekennzeichnet. Das Buch erzählt die Geschichten von acht »Berufsverbrecherinnen« – vorbestrafte Abtreiberinnen und Diebinnen aus Österreich, die ins Frauen-KZ Ravensbrück deportiert wurden. Über diese KZ-Häftlingsgruppe ist bis heute fast nichts bekannt, und von den Opfern existieren keinerlei Selbstzeugnisse. Anhand von Gerichtsakten rekonstruiert Sylvia Köchl die Biografien und arbeitet ein bisher unbekanntes Kapitel der NS-Geschichte auf.

Den Fokus der Präsentation legt Sylvia Köchl auf Read the rest of this entry »

Die Losung von der „Revolutionierung der Köpfe“, die „jedem dinglichen Umsturz vorangehen“ müsse – ausgegeben von Kurt Hiller in der bereits 1916 veröffentlichten programmatischen Schrift „Philosophie des Ziels“ –, umreißt die Funktionsbestimmung, welche die Philosophie, die Wissenschaften vom Menschen wie Nationalökonomie, Soziologie oder Psychologie, schließlich auch die Literatur im Zusammenhang der politischen und sozialen Entwicklungen nach dem 1. Weltkrieg in Mitteleuropa erhielten. Dem Motiv des „neuen Menschen“ kam dabei Read the rest of this entry »

CfP: Historicising and Theorising Public History (12th European Social Science History Conference, 04/2018, Belfast); DL: 01.05.2017 [REMINDER]

Februar 21st, 2017

The 12th European Social Science History Conference (ESSHC); organized by the International Institute of Social History; Stefan Berger, Ruhr-Univ. Bochum; Berber Bevernage, Ghent Univ./Univ. Forum (Ufo); Thomas Welskopp, Univ. Bielefeld and the ESSHC Conference Secretariat (Web)

Venue: Belfast, Northern Ireland
Time: 4th to 7th April 2018
Proposals by: 1 May 2017

The ESSHC aims to bring together scholars interested in explaining historical phenomena using interdisciplinary approaches to the study of the past. The conference is characterized by a lively exchange in many small groups, rather than by formal plenary sessions. It is organized in a large number of networks that cover a certain topic (e.g. criminal justice, family, social inequality). The Theory and Historiography network is interested in proposals for panels (consisting of three papers and a comment), roundtables (more oriented to discussion than the formal presentation of panels) and ‘meet the author’ sessions (where there is a pathbreaking publication of a monograph, not older than two years) on theoretical and historiograpical topics. There is a special interest in comparative and transnational approaches. In 2018 we would like to encourage proposals in particular in the realm of ‘Historicising and Theorising Public History’. Other possible themes include but are not limited to: Read the rest of this entry »

CfP: The Place of the Political in Critical Feminist Materialisms (Publikation: Freiburger Zeitschrift für GeschlechterStudien); 31.05.2017

Porposals by: 31.05.2017

Current approaches of Feminist Materialisms provide epistemological and methodological contexts for conceptualizing the connections between matter and meaning. Through this process, we can analyze intra-actions between bodily, technological, and social forces, between research practices and their apparatuses, and between meaning and normalization in the constituting of phenomena. In connection to this onto-epistemological approach, questions about the political dimensions of feminist materialisms are gaining prominence. In 1985, Donna Haraway was already positing the debate regarding the “material-semiotic entanglements” of nature, technology, and social existence as politically imperative for criticism of power relations and capitalism as well as for a resistance to ex- and inclusion.

With regard to this current debate, our Call for Papers addresses the issue of the place of the political in Critical Feminist Materialisms as between bodies, technologies, and subjects in the context of individual and collective practices, societal structures, and symbolic norms. Read more … (PDf)
