CfP: Biography and Violence. Violent dynamics and agency in collective processes and individual life histories (Event, 02/2018, Göttingen); DL: 01.09.2017 [REMINDER]

International Conference to be held at the Center of Methods in Social Sciences (Qualitative Methods/Professorship Rosenthal) (Web)

Venue: University of Göttingen
Time: 9-10 February 2018
Abstract Subbmission: 01.09.2019

In European societies, current media reports on (civil) wars, armed conflicts, terror attacks, illegalized migration, or attacks on migrants show that physical violence and violent phenomena attract great attention, albeit often in a very charged and selective manner.

The high number of studies devoted to violent phenomena and their causes, dynamics and consequences means that today there can be no question of a general neglect of violence in the social sciences any more, at least with regard to empirical research. Much recent research in this field has focused on violence in the narrow sense of the word, meaning the social dynamics organized around physical injury to, and the vulnerability of, social actors. This conference tries to go beyond a normative perspective limited to the study of isolated “causes”, and strives to understand the interactive dynamics of violence that creates and destroys social order. In addition, increased attention is paid to the history and experiences of the actors involved, and their social networks. Read more and source … (Web)

Gegenwärtig ist viel von einem grundlegenden Wandel der (Vorstellungen von der) Liebe in der westlichen Welt die Rede. Schon die Anbahnung der Liebesbeziehungen verändert ihr Gesicht: Immer häufiger findet sie in den sozialen Medien statt. Ist die Beziehung einmal konstituiert, kann sie „offen“ oder „treuebasiert“, zusammen-lebend oder getrennt-lebend, unverheiratet oder verheiratet geführt werden. Der eine geht von lebenslangem Zusammensein aus, die andere von einer Lebensabschnittspartnerschaft. Was in der Beziehung stattfinden soll, wird ebenso unterschiedlich gesehen: Identitätsfindung und -stabilisierung durch vollständiges Verstehen des Partners, oder nur wechselseitige Unterstützung bei der Bewältigung des praktischen Lebens zwischen Sorgen und Vergnügungen? Und: Soll Nachwuchs gezeugt und/oder aufgezogen werden?

Weitere Faktoren verkomplizieren die Situation. Angesichts der hohen Anforderungen an die berufliche Mobilität können aus Lebensgemeinschaften schnell Pendlerbeziehungen werden – und umgekehrt; die ökonomische Basis des Zusammenlebens kann wegbrechen oder … weiterlesen und Quelle (Web)

Justizia9th Conference of the European network „Gender Differences in the History of European Legal Cultures“; Conveners: Annette Cremer (Gießen) and Hannes Ziegler (London) (Web)

Venue: German Historical Institute, London
Time: 19.-21.07.2018
Abstract Submission: 15.10.2017

The history of material cultures offers important new ways of studying the significance of gender differences in the history of legal cultures by exploring new relationships between gender, law and material culture. Material and immaterial possession informs the self-image of individuals and societies, dynasties and families. A threefold scheme of legal distinction differentiates between usufruct (1), possession (2), and property (3). Yet these relationships between individuals and objects are not only relevant to civil law, but correspond to political regimes. While usufruct, possession and property thus correspond to different forms of authority and society, they also have a bearing on gender relations on different levels of society. Usually, these gendered aspects of material culture are the products of traditional proximities between certain areas of activity and related groups of objects. Communities in early modern Europe can thus be said to have a gendered and often legally sanctioned relationship to the material world and the world of objects. Read more and source … (Web)

CfP: Children and Adolescents in Times of Crises (Publication); DL: 01.10.2017

August 16th, 2017

Editors: Marc Grimm, Ullrich Bauer and Baris Ertugrul

Abstract Submissions: 01.10.2017

The concept of crises is currently in vogue. There is a broad discussion about the impact of crisis that is often associated with effects of social disintegration but the concept of crisis is even broader. Various social areas such as ecology, economics, and migration are considered as being crisis-ridden. There is also a gender crisis. And the EU, which suffers from a lack of political trust, finds itself in a state of crisis like never before. As such, crisis obviously describes strongly divergent phenomena, from the collapse of the gross domestic product to the loss of political trust.

Crisis has become something like a diagnosis of an era, in which development differences and empirical differences are overlooked – despite or precisely because the crisis diagnosis has become an instrument for political purposes. A close examination of the different approaches to crisis research draws the conclusion that a differentiated perspective is rarely taken; most research treats crisis as a given fact without further theoretical explanation.

Mit dem Thema Doing Gender in Exile soll das Exil als Labor für die Transformation von Geschlechtlichkeit und sexuellen Identitäten neu in den Blick genommen werden. Unter Exilbedingungen können Menschen wesentliche Handlungsräume verlieren, aber auch gewinnen – und solch eine Neupositionierung im öffentlichen wie im privaten Raum kann Konstruktionen und Haltungen im Zusammenhang mit eigener und fremder Geschlechtlichkeit verändern. Gerade im Kontext der Exilforschung wurden diese Prozesse noch immer nicht ausreichend beachtet und analysiert. Doing Gender in Exile soll das Forschungsfeld für neue theoretische Impulse seitens der Gender Studies, der transnationalen Geschlechtergeschichte und der Migrationsforschung öffnen.
