The conference will be opened by the eminent ethicist Robert Veatch (Kennedy Institute of Ethics, Georgetown University Washington DC).

This conference will focus on selected cases from Turkey, Germany, and other countries which for the last 50 years have been closely connected by substantial migration processes, as they had been earlier through medical scientific exchanges and common clinical practice. Building on the well received first two rounds on the beginning and the end of life, respectively, held in Germany (Mainz) in 2010 and in Turkey (Istanbul) in 2012, the aim of this third conference is to widen the discussion platform for Read the rest of this entry »

CfP: Und sie bewegt sich doch! 150 Jahre Frauenbewegung in Deutschland – eine Jubiläumsausgabe (Publikation: Ariadne); DL: 31.05.2014

April 11th, 2014

Ariadne: Forum für Frauen- und Geschlechtergeschichte, Heft 67-68, Redaktion: Prof. Dr. Susanne Schötz/ Laura Schibbe M.A. und Dr. Kerstin Wolff (Web)

Erscheinungstermin: Juni/Juli 2015
Einreichfrist: 31.05.2014

Zwischen dem 15. und 18. Oktober 1865 fand in Leipzig eine wegweisende Frauenkonferenz statt. Auf diesem Treffen wurde die Gründung des Allgemeinen Deutschen Frauenvereins (ADF) beschlossen. Diese Gründung setzte eine Kettenreaktion in Gang, die zur Entwicklung der Frauenbewegung in Deutschland führte. Was als Frauenbildungsverein begann, wurde zum Kern einer Bewegung, die sich in alle Bereiche von (Partei)Politik, Gesellschaft und Kultur eingemischt hat und noch heute einmischt. Dabei differenzierte sich die Bewegung recht schnell aus. Waren sich zu Beginn die Protagonistinnen noch über die Notwendigkeit des Ausbaus der Frauen(aus)bildung recht einig, kam es spätestens bei der Frage nach dem Ziel der Frauenbildung zu ersten Differenzen. Die vielbeschworene Frauensolidarität …weiterlesen (PDF).

CfP: Food, Hunger and Conflict (Amsterdam Symposium on the History of Food 01/2015, Amsterdam); DL: 15.05.2014

April 10th, 2014

Organising Committee: Filip Degreef; Paul Koopman; Antonia Mazel; Joke Mammen; Nathalie Parys; Garrelt Verhoeven

Time: 16-17 January 2015
Venue: Amsterdam
Deadline: 15 May 2014

The symposium has the aspiration to become an annual point of assembly and an exchange of knowledge in the field of food history. It intends to stimulate debate and research that bridges the gap between different disciplines. Submissions are encouraged to use an interdisciplinary approach, in which theory and methods from other (social) sciences are appropriated or other disciplines that take a historical stance. Another aim is to transfer academic research to a wider public and stimulate research using the Special Collection of the University of Amsterdam. The symposium is therefore targeted at both an academic and a professional audience. Read more and source …

REMINDER: CfP: New Materialism gender, politics, methodology (Event: 09/2014, Barcelona); DL: 01.05.2014

April 10th, 2014

EU-funded COST Action IS1307, New Materialism: Networking European Scholarship on ‘How matter comes to matter’ (Web)

Venue: Barcelona
Time: 25th and 26th of September, 2014
Deadline for abstracts is the 1st of May

The theory of new materialism is traversing many disciplines of knowledge: from quantum physics to art theory. This allows a search for a common ground for interdisciplinary studies. In addition, these theoretical approaches are proving themselves as a suitable “ethic-onto-epistemological” framework (Barad, 2007) that permits the examination of social phenomena from multidimensional perspectives, alongside offering new ways to theorize and challenge the divisions between matter and discourse, nature and culture, etc. However, the methodological parameters of these approaches remain underdeveloped and somewhat unclear especially when related to feminist theories and politics. New materialism has been coined as a “third wave feminist epistemology” (van der Tuin, 2009) in the present globalized information society, and it is … read more (Website).

CfP: Rebooting Feminism. Console-ing Passions International Conference on Television, Video, Audio, New Media and Feminism (Event: 06/2015, Dublin); DL: 01.10.2014

April 9th, 2014

Conference Organizers: Maeve Connolly, Kylie Jarrett, Jorie Lagerwey, Diane Negra, Maria Pramaggiore, Emma Radley, and Stephanie Rains

Date: June 18-20, 2015
Venue: Dublin
Deadline for Abstracts: October 1, 2014

Founded by a group of feminist media scholars and artists in 1989, Console-ing Passions held its first official conference at the University of Iowa in 1992. Since that time, Console-ing Passions has become the leading international scholarly network for feminist research in television, video, audio, and new media.

23 years after the group’s founding, we find ourselves in a dramatically different media landscape, as well as a world in which the meanings of feminism, postfeminism, and the intersections of feminism with race, sexuality, and class are hotly contested in the academy, in the popular press, and in contemporary media representations. Console-ing Passions 2015 asks, Read the rest of this entry »

REMINDER: CfP: Verflochtene Lebenswelten. Gender und Transkulturalität in der Vormoderne (Publikation); DL: 13.04.2014

April 8th, 2014

Sammelband, herausgegeben von Antje Flüchter, IKOS, Oslo und Monika Mommertz, Historisches Seminar Freiburg

Einreichfrist: 13.04.2014

War man vor wenigen Jahren in der deutschen Geschichtswissenschaft froh, die nationale Schallmauer durchbrochen und die europäische Perspektive im Titel diverser Bücher und Forschungsvorhaben zu finden, so wird nun gefordert, auch globale Aspekte oder solche des entanglement zu berücksichtigen. In der deutschsprachigen Geschichtswissenschaft befasst sich die Frühneuzeitgeschichte zwar schon seit langem auch mit inner- und außereuropäischen Kulturkontakten und Formen des Austauschs, doch sind explizite Auseinandersetzungen mit Konzepten der Transkulturalität und Verflechtungsgeschichte noch selten. Noch zu wenig beleuchtet wurde, wie Geschlechtergeschichte oder die Kategorie gender in globaler oder transkultureller Perspektive heuristisch fruchtbar gemacht werden kann. Diesem Mangel möchten wir mit dem geplanten Band unter dem Schlagwort „Verflochtene Lebenswelten“ entgegenarbeiten. Weiterlesen und Quelle …
