CfP: Early Modern Women’s Mobilities (Journal: Early Modern Women); DL: 30.01.2019 [REMINDERIN]

Early Modern Women: An Interdisciplinary Journal (Web), Volume 14.1 (Fall 2019)

Proposals by: 30.01.2019

The scholarship on early modern women has moved far beyond the long-held notion that women remained in the home. Indeed, mobility was a defining feature of many women’s lives. For this forum, we are interested not only in examples of women’s mobility, but also research that interrogates the far-reaching implications of that mobility for women and considers how it informs our understanding of gender in the early modern world.

We seek essays that examine but are not limited to:

  • Migration and settlement (actual and imagined, internal and external)
  • Travel (actual and imagined, local and global, voluntary and involuntary)
  • Gendered understandings of distance and space
  • Movement and the body
  • Modes of transportation
  • Intersectionality and mobility

Please send abstracts of 500 words to the editors (emwj@umw.edu) by September 30, 2018. Completed essays of 3500 words will be due on January 30, 2019.

CfP: Speaking of Violence (Event: 04/2019, Iowa); DL: 11.01.2019 [REMINDERIN]

Craft Critique Culture Conference (Web)

Time: 04.-06.04.2019
Veneu: University of Iowa
Proposals by January 11, 2019

Craft Critique Culture is an interdisciplinary conference focusing on the intersections of critical and creative approaches to writing both within and beyond the academy. This year’s conference will explore what happens when we are “Speaking of Violence…”

Via his character Salvor Hardin, Isaac Asimov articulates this famous maxim: “Violence is the last refuge of the incompetent.” To Asimov, violence is the epitome of ignorance in action, an act that, regardless of motivation, is one of desperation and ineptitude. To Frantz Fanon, “Violence is man re-creating himself,” an almost necessary evil in the fight against the vicious hand of colonialism on the journey to re-establish subjectivity and personhood. And these perhaps contradictory statements are but two of many perspectives that attest to the expansive nature of violence.

This year’s theme is intentionally broad in order to elicit a range of responses that move from the micro- to the macro-scopic. For example, topics might range from studies on PTSD to literature inspired by WWII, or a discussion on how and when contemporary protests are categorized as riots. Through this approach,  … read more (Web).

CfP: Arbeit auf dem Land: AkteurInnen, Gesellschaften und Umwelten (Event: ITH-Konferenz, 09/2019, Linz); DL: 06.01.2019 [REMINDERIN]

55. ITH-Konferenz; mitveranstaltet vom Institut für die Geschichte des ländlichen Raumes, St. Pölten (Web)

Ort: Linz
Zeit: 5.-7. September 2019
Einreichfrist: 6. Jänner 2019

Die 55. ITH-Konferenz beabsichtigt die Beziehungen zwischen der Geschichte der Arbeit, der Arbeitenden und der ArbeiterInnenbewegungen sowie der Geschichte des ländlichen Raumes zu festigen. Das Themengebiet der „Arbeit auf dem Land“ soll dazu aus zwei Blickwinkeln behandelt werden: 1) Landwirtschaftliche Arbeit als Koproduktion von Gesellschaft und Natur und 2) ländliche Arbeitsverhältnisse als Bestandteile größerer politischer und wirtschaftlicher Systeme.

Die Beiträge sollen aufzeigen, wie sich diese beiden Perspektiven gegenseitig ergänzen, Forschungsdesiderate und blinde Flecken in der jeweils anderen Perspektive ausfindig machen, Brücken bauen und zur theoretischen, methodologischen und empirischen Bereicherung der Geschichte landwirtschaftlicher Arbeit beitragen.

Der erste Blickwinkel akzentuiert die Aspekte, die landwirtschaftliche Arbeit – Acker- und Gartenbau, Viehzucht, Arbeit in der Wald- und Forstwirtschaft oder die Verarbeitung von auf dem Land produzierten Rohstoffen – von anderen Formen der Arbeit unterscheidet. Diese Perspektive lenkt die Aufmerksamkeit auf die aus ihrer natürlichen Einbettung resultierenden Unterschiede der Landwirtschaft im Vergleich zu anderen Wirtschaftszweigen: die natürlichen Einschränkungen betreffend die Auswahl von Kulturpflanzen in bestimmten Regionen, die biologischen Wachstumsprozesse von Pflanzen und Tieren, die Saisonalität … weiterlesen (Web)

CfP: Staging the Space Between, 1914-1945 (Event, 05/2019, Brookings/SD); DL: 01.12.2018

Montag, Oktober 29th, 2018

21st Annual Conference of The Space Between Society: Literature and Culture, 1914-1945

Time: May 30-June 1, 2019
Venue: South Dakota State University, Brookings, SD
Proposals by: December 1, 2018

What is the role of staging in The Space Between? What does it look like, where does it occur, and how does it function?

Staging is an essential part of how we conceptualize history, literature, culture, and art. The concept of staging naturally invokes performance and invites us to examine this period’s performing arts: its theatre, dance, and music, its art and artists, celebrities and entrepreneurs, its practices and innovations. Staging expands the realm of performance to include more diverse arts, media, and productions, such as fashion, literature, performance art, and interior design. Technical innovations extended modes of performance to radio, cinema, television, staging the voice and the body in new and provocative ways to different and diverse audiences.

However, staging extends beyond the arts into other realms of society. We can observe how staging operates within consumer culture, from the department store to the popular periodical, and we can track the growth of industries that relied on mass production. The term embraces other registers of performance and enables us to consider the performativity of language and gender, warfare and nationhood, politics and protest. Staging shapes the way we remember the present and the past, both as individuals and as a society. (mehr …)

CfP: Geschlechterordnungen in Stadt und Region. Eigensinnige Aneignungen, politische Aushandlungen, kulturelle Vergewisserungen (ZS „GENDER“); DL: 12.11.2018 [REMINDERIN]

GENDER. Zeitschrift für Geschlecht, Kultur und Gesellschaft (Web); Hg.: Uta C. Schmidt und Anne Schlüter

Einreichfrist: 12.11.2018

Stadt und Region – beides sind gesellschaftlich und geschlechtlich organisierte Räume, in denen grundlegende Erfahrungen gemacht und ausgetauscht werden. Institutionelle wie individuelle Akteur*innen konstruieren Räumlichkeiten, Identitäten und Handlungsperspektiven über geschlechterbezogene Narrationen – zu denken wäre in der Vergangenheit an die „Stadt der Frauen“ der Christine de Pizan oder aktuell an das Ruhrgebiet und seine Metaerzählung von der schwer arbeitenden Männerregion. Um den Fokus zu erweitern und gegebenenfalls auch Unterschiede in den Blick zu bringen, sollen im geplanten Themenheft beide Raumordnungen – Stadt und Region – auf ihren geschlechterbezogenen Konstruktions-, Erfahrungs- und Handlungszusammenhang hin in den Blick genommen werden.

Vor rund 30 Jahren begannen Frauen, inspiriert von der sich formierenden Alltagsgeschichte, nach Frauen in Städten und Regionen zu forschen. Sie verstanden die Aneignung ihrer Geschichte als Frauen dezidiert als politische Raumnahme und hoben Stadt und Region als von Frauen und Männern gleichermaßen geschaffene und gestaltete Lebensräume ins Bewusstsein. Heute zeigen queer-/feministische Akteur*innen die Deutungsmacht von Heterosexualität und Heteronormativität in den Geschlechtergeografien von Stadt und Region und entwerfen neue emanzipatorische Räume.

CfP: Integrating Gender in the History of Humanitarian Aid: Europe, 20th–21st century (Event: 06/2019, Angers); DL: 30.12.2018

Mittwoch, Oktober 24th, 2018

Luciana Marioara Jinga, Universités d’Angers, Bretagne Sud, Le Mans

Venue: Angers
Time: 12.-13.06.2019
Proposals by 30.12.2018

In 2017, the Inter-Agency Standing Committee (IASC) published the second edition of its guide „Women, Girls, Boys and Men. Different Needs — Equal Opportunities: Gender Handbook in Humanitarian Action“ (2017), explaining the necessary gender approach in all humanitarian response, showing that the two fields are closer than never and marking the efforts made in this direction for the last two decades. Traditionally, while referring to gender, the history of humanitarian aid traditionally privileged the image of women as victims. The newest scholarship is breaking with this pattern. In a first time, research recuperates the hidden stories of women in the humanitarian, and the contributions of Linda Mahood and Tarah Brookfield mark an important step in this direction.

In a second time, historians, but also political scientists, sociologists, anthropologists, are willing to explore the humanitarian aid through the gender lens. Their effort takes looking into how socially constructed practices dictated the assignment of specific roles, hierarchies, responsibilities and expectations to men and women working in the humanitarian effort, but also how structural unequal gender roles present on the field, among the beneficiaries, undermined or even completely compromised humanitarian actions. Recent academic encounters (Gender & Humanitarianism. (Dis-)Empowering Women and Men in the 20th Century, 2017, Gendering Humanitarian Knowledge, 2018, L’humanitaire: nouveau champ de recherche pour l’histoire de l’Europe, 2018) and … read more and source (Web).

In her path-breaking work Borderlands/La Frontera (1987), Gloria E. Anzaldúa parsed out the relationship between heteronormativity and the stretching of the border into various borderlands, subjectivities, and temporalities. In the context of ongoing migration and the intensification of border regimes, this formative thesis on the relationship between borders and sexuality needs renewed attention and consideration. How do sexuality and borders intersect? What role does sexuality play in the production, maintenance, and disruption of contemporary border regimes? How do borders as features of racial capitalism multiply inequalities via sexuality and, conversely, how is sexuality mediated through racialized border regimes? While people continue to move across borders, sexuality becomes a dominant frame through which such movement is attempted to be captured, framed, and contained. At the same time, the border becomes understood, organized, and contested through sexuality and sexual discourse.

In response to these phenomena, this symposium conceptualizes sexuality as a method of bordering and thinks sexuality beyond identity towards its multifarious entanglements with contemporary border regimes. From moral panics about … read more and source (Web).
